Today I wanna show you how you can colour your own Easter eggs. Most people buy them, also if it's really easy to colour them. You don't need a lot and you don't have to spend a lot of money. We dye our eggs always by ourselves and every one looks different at the end.
So I hope you enjoy my first DIY and hopefully it helps you. If you try it out, I would love to see your eggs. Make a picture, put it on instagram or twitter and tag me :) (Twitter: @littledaydreame Instagram: @thelittledxydreamer)
- Hard-boiled eggs
- egg dyes
- onionskin (cutted in little pieces)
- a scissor and a spoon
Take your eggs and make them wet. Now you can put on what you want. Flowers, onionskin...
Wrap it into a piece of stocking and put a piece of thread over it, so nothing can get out.
For the next step you have to follow the instructions of your egg dyes. I had to put 1/4 liter boiled water into a container. Then I put 3 tablespoons and the colour into the water.
Put the eggs into the colour and wait. I waited for 10 to 15 minutes. The instructions said 'wait 7 minutes' but you can leave it in longer for a darker hue.
Put the eggs out and wait a little bit. Then remove the stocking and all the flowers. Act carefully! You can remove the flowers also when the colour dried.
You can also try to mix the colours. I haven't done it before but the eggs turned out very beautiful.
