The coolest Easter egg dyeing techniques you’ve ever seen. Step by step guides that utilize everyday items you already have in your house to create beautiful and special dyed eggs.
Dyeing Easter Eggs is one of my favorite holiday traditions. We spent nearly every Easter at my Grandparents house in Pennsylvania, and would always dye eggs with my Grandma. Although I haven’t celebrated a traditional Easter in many years, I have continued the egg dyeing tradition.
Times have changed a bit since I would write my name in white crayon and dye an egg a solid color. With 34 years of practice under my belt, I now consider myself a bit of an egg dyeing expert.
I teamed up with my friends at Honest Films to bring you 5 of my favorite egg dyeing techniques. I hope you enjoy, and if you give these a try, please share the results on my Facebook page or by tagging #betsylife on Instagram
- Tie Dye Easter Eggs: Drop food coloring onto a damp paper towel until you achieve the desired colors and pattern. Wrap paper towel tightly around an egg. Set aside.
- Rubber band Easter Eggs: Wrap rubber bands around either a plain egg, or a pre-dyed egg. Submerge in dye until desired color is achieved. Remove and dry. Remove rubber bands.
- Rubber Cement Easter Eggs: Paint rubber cement on around either a plain egg, or a pre-dyed egg. Submerge in dye until desired color is achieved. Remove and dry. Scrape off rubber cement to reveal swirled pattern.
- Electrical Tape Easter Eggs: Using electrical tape, create a geometric pattern on an egg. Submerge in dye until desired color is achieved. Remove and dry. Remove electrical tape.
- Marbled Easter Eggs: Add one tablespoon vegetable oil to one cup of dye. Swirl mixture with a fork, then add an egg. Remove and dry.
