3 Ways Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs


Last few years my favourite Easter colours are coming from nature. I love to explore ways of natural dyeing and it is always a pleasure to see what will come out after hours and hours of soaking eggs.

Usually all the varieties are surprisingly amazing. I am sharing few ideas below.

I didn’t write exact recipes, because it is all together just exploring ingredients and their shades. Have fun and dig into the unknown. You will be amazed by the results.

1 // Cold beetroot juice + 2 tbsp white vinegar – 15 h
2 // Cold frozen blueberries & water + 2 tbsp white vinegar – 15 h
3 // Hot onion peels & red wine + 2 tbsp white vinegar – 15 h

But first I whitened the natural colour of eggs. Yes, you can this also the natural way:

  1. Put 20 eggs to a big pot and I pour in 500 ml white vinegar and the rest amount water to cover all the eggs.
  2. Bring to boil and stand close by, while waiting to boil.
  3. Cook for 10 minutes on medium temperature.
  4. After cooking just leave eggs in that water for another 20 minutes.
  5. Take eggs out of the pot and wash them gently with water.
  6. Eggs are ready for the coloring.
