Nest of eggs

Here are the Easter Eggs I made from all natural homemade dye on Sunday. The three dark red were soaked overnight in beet juice, yellow is tumeric, blue is red cabbage and the pink one is beet juice for an hour. This was a very fun project.

I love the colours of the eggs. We dyed eggs last year with homemade dyes for the first time and what a difference it makes in the colours. Just beautiful! We will probably wait until the weekend of the 15th-16th to do ours, or maybe next week when the girls are home for march break...yeah!

This was a very fun project that I intend to repeat next year with different colors. I want to experiment with greenish colors and purple.

Perfectly beautiful color on those eggs Vickie!

I'm looking forward to seeing the results of your green & purple experiments.
