We just finished dyeing our Easter eggs and we are so, so happy with them! In our humble opinions they are just beautiful. This is one of our all-time favorite Easter egg decorating ideas.
First we did melted crayon drawings on the eggs by drawing on the fresh-boiled eggs while they were still hot. The crayon melted on smoothly as we drew.
Then we prepared our dye with about 3/4 cup hot water, a few drops of food coloring, and 1 Tbsp white vinegar.
We admired our Easter eggs as they came out of the dye…
I love how vibrant the melted crayon drawings look on the eggs.
And love the crayon resist effect with the dye.
I think we're ready for Easter now.
