Natural Easter Egg Dyes

When you hard boil your Easter Eggs, add a little vinegar and one (or more) of these natural dyes. After you’ve boiled the eggs in the dye for about 8-10 minutes, the colors will be beautiful! Rub a little vegetable oil into the eggs for a shiny coat afterward.

Natural dyes for Easter Eggs:

  • Fresh, canned, or frozen strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, cherries or raspberries
  • Purple or red grape juice
  • Violet blossoms
  • Red zinger or hibiscus tea tea
  • Red or yellow onion skins
  • Red wine
  • Red cabbage leaves
  • Purple grape leaves
  • Spinach
  • Apple, lemon, or orange peels
  • Carrots
  • Cumin
  • Turmeric
  • Coffee
  • Paprika
  • Beets
  • Pomegranate juice

Send us your photos of your Easter Eggs!
