Tye Dyed Easter Eggs are original, colorful, simple, and fun – what’s not to love? Pick up a dozen eggs, find the food coloring that’s lurking in the back of your pantry, and let’s get started!
1 dozen eggs
food coloring (4 drops per color)
vinegar (1 teaspoon per color)
thin rubber bands
Step 1) Carefully place eggs in a large skillet and cover with water. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove eggs from water and immediately place in refrigerator to cool.
Step 2) Wrap each egg in several rubber bands (not too tight, or the eggs will break!).
Step 3) For each desired color, combine 4 drops of food coloring and 1 teaspoon vinegar. Medicine cups work well for this.
Step 4) Using a small art brush, paint each color within the boundaries of the rubber bands. Use color sparingly (don’t soak the brush) for best results.
Step 5) Allow eggs to dry before removing rubber bands.
