Have you dyed your Easter Eggs yet? If not, here’s a fun and different DIY way to dye Easter Eggs without buying a kit. Everything you need you should have on hand, and if not, just pop by Walmart and you’ll have everything is a jiffy!This technique is simple, although it may take a few tries to get the types of effects you want. The “swirling” part is sort of a trial and error learning process 🙂
Hard-boiled White Eggs
Glasses or Mugs
-In a container wide and deep enough to “dunk” your egg, mix 1 tsp cooking oil with 1 tsp food coloring. It may look a bit blotchy.
-Add 1 tsp of vinegar to the oil/color mix and stir.
-Add enough water in the container to be able to submerge the egg.
-Now gently swirl the liquid in the cup around and around into a sort of whirlpool-while it’s still moving use your spoon to dunk your hard boiled egg into the mix, submerge it and quickly pull it out.
-The oil & dye are going to look like they are just pooling on the surface of the egg. Never fear-just gently move the egg onto a piece of paper towel and blot. The liquid will come off and the color will remain on the egg.
-Leave it to dry for a minute or so. Either enjoy as is or dunk in another color.
