Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs by A Beautiful Mess

Elsie and Emma run "A Beautiful Mess," a very cool and colorful blog full of "homemade recipes, crafts and inspiration from (their) readers around the world."

In this post (see link 4 below), one of their contributors, Rachel Denbow, shares how to dye Easter eggs naturally - using really colorful food, like beets, cabbage and turmeric. She explains what you should expect with a white shell vs brown, and even breaks out each color and delves into different hues of blue, for example, and how to achieve a robbins egg shade vs aqua vs a grayish blue. She put in a ton of thought and preparation, and we appreciate it!

Supplies listed here:

  • hard boiled eggs (white eggs allow brighter colors, brown allow warmer/darker colors)
  • -white vinegar
  • 5 medium beets
  • one red cabbage
  • 1 pound raw spinach
  • turmeric
  • 5 avocados
  • small bag of dry black beans
  • -3-5 sauce pans depending on how many vegetables you are dyeing
  • 3-5 containers to hold dye (small mixing bowls, mason jars, clear plastic cups)
  • tongs or large metal spoons
  • strainer
