Dyeing Easter eggs is a tradition that most people celebrate. It is a fun and creative experience for you to do with your family and friends. These 5 Easter egg dyeing techniques are perfect for you to try. So hop to it!
Shaving Cream Easter Eggs
Give your Easter eggs a beautiful marbleized look by using shaving cream! Create a bed of plain shaving cream and get natural food coloring or dye to create a design on it. Roll your hardboiled eggs over the surface of the shaving cream. Let your eggs dry before removing the excess shaving cream.
This is one of the simpler egg dyeing methods and you’ve probably already have everything in your pantry. Get some dry rice and put it in a cup, add food coloring, shake the cup to distribute the food coloring and then drop in the egg. Shake the egg around in the cup. The rice will distribute the color around the egg in a very fun pattern!
Tissue Paper Eggs
Give your eggs some pretty designs with tissue paper and decoupage. Cut out designs on tissue paper and brush a thin coat of decoupage on your egg. Place the tissue paper on the egg and pat it into place.
Make your eggs look gorgeous with this fun technique. All you have to do is get one cup of cool water and add 20 drops of food coloring and 2 teaspoons of white vinegar. Now melt 1 tablespoon of margarine and stir it into the dye solution. Use tongs to dunk an egg in and out of the solution three times. After that, submerge the egg for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the egg and let it dry before gently rubbing away any remaining margarine.
Get some string and tightly tie it around your eggs. Drop the egg into colorful dye. Let the eggs dry before removing the string to reveal clean white lines.
