I have been making naturally dyed Easter Eggs for years, and it is always fun to see the colors that you can create from nature. This year I saw some Onion Dyed Easter Eggs on Pinterest that had leaf patterns imprinted on them. I was intrigued, and found that the pin linked to this Craftster message board, which had all the instructions. I decided to make some of my own, using herbs along with a wider variety of natural dyes. Here are my natural herb stenciled Easter Eggs!
They came out even better than I expected, and weren’t too difficult to make either. Stockings are used to hold the herbs tight against the eggs during the dying process. Although the original project used blown eggs I hard boiled my eggs, because it seems simpler to me, and because my kids love hardboiled eggs for a snack. Here is how I created the Easter Eggs.
