Easter is coming early this year and we are having a easter egg hunt for our little ones! I’m so excited. I started thinking about the type of eggs we will have and I thought I’d try out something a little different. Not only did it work but the eggs have a really great pattern, I’m in love with these… I almost don’t want to eat them.
Here is what you’ll need..
Hard Boiled Eggs [best method]
Food Coloring [liquid or gel]
I also made one longer section to dip in different colors.
Cut the twine in varying lengths, enough to wrap around the egg a couple of times.
Place your cheesecloth and twine [can be in the same dye together] in cup with dye for about 2 minutes.
Next get an old towel… or newspaper or whatever you want to protect your work surface [this gets a little messy]…. take out your twine and wrap around egg.. I started taking pictures after a few rounds of wrapping my egg but you get the idea.
You only need to leave the twine on the egg for about 3 minutes.
Same idea with the cheesecloth… lay it out and then wrap the egg in the cloth…
