Today I’m going to show you how to make super cool tie dye eggs! So let’s get started.

The things you will be needing are:

  • Paper towel
  • Vinegar
  • Food coloring
  • Spray bottle
  • Rubber bands
  • Sandwich bag
  • Container to use for dye

Fill up the spray bottle with water. Then add a couple teaspoons of vinegar.

Lay a piece of paper towel on a throw-away container and start randomly dripping the food coloring on the paper towel.

Next, spray your water/vinegar mixture on the paper towel until the colors have blended together. (This is the part I kept forgetting!)

Roll your hard-boiled egg around on the paper towel.

Bring up all the four corners around the egg.

Stick the paper-towel-wrapped egg in a plastic bag and tie it shut with a rubber band (or silly band :p).

Let the egg sit for about 30 minutes and un-bag it to reveal the awesomeness :D.

I find this technique really fun, and it turns out AMAZING! Both the pictures above are different sides of the same egg.

I think both of them are cool, but, I have to admit, the top one is way better!

Have a fun time dyeing eggs! Oh, and I would love to see your eggs you dye (even if it isn’t with this technique). So make sure to send me a picture using the contact me page.

Thanks!

    We dye eggs (both hard-boiled and not) and the hard-boiled ones look so cool, even when you put them in a soolid color! Plus, the dye soals into the actual egg, so the egg you eat is also colored! 😛
