I love these ideas if you’re wanting Natural food dyes for deep, rich, earthy coloured Easter eggs! Aren’t they beautiful? Anything from wine to onion skins can be used as an all natural dye. All you need to do is put the eggs in boiling water with your desired “natural dye” and boil away for 8 – 10mins. Your natural dye could be coffee, wine, red cabbage, spinach leaves, grated carrots, beetroots, onion skin, cranberry juice or anything else that you fancy. Great way to get the family together over Easter and create something different.
