Natural Designs for your Easter Eggs
Just because you are going the natural route of dyeing your eggs that doesn’t mean that they should lack design. Here’s what you can do to jazz up your eggs:
– Rubber bands: use a collection of different sizes and wrap the bands around the egg one at a time. Make sure to leave some of the egg shell exposed
– Glossy shine: eggs that are naturally dyed have a dull finish. So rub the eggs with coconut oil to give them a soft sheen
– Stickers: place various shapes and designs of stickers on the egg prior before dyeing. Once dried, remove the stickers to see the contrast between the eggs natural colour against the natural dye
– Imprints: use leaves, flower petals, parsley- whatever you like! Next take some (old) panty-hose and cut it in 4 inch squares. Lay your leaf or whatever you would like imprinted on your egg. Then tie your panty-hose tightly around both the egg and the leaf. Dye as you normally would and wait until the egg dries before removing the imprint.
