People prefer most things in their lives to be natural rather than artificial (think food, makeup, and even cleaning supplies), so this creative idea really caught my eye. It’s a unique twist on your traditionally dyed Easter eggs, only using foods, spices, and plants. Here is how Lauren Conrad went natural with her eggs!
- Red onion
- White onion
- Purple cabbage
- Whole carrots (with stems)
- Hard boil eggs in water.
- Add each ingredient to 2 cups of water and boil it for about 10-15 minutes. Let them cool to about room temp. (This speeds up the dyeing process and makes the water a more saturated color.)
- Soak an egg in each cup of water to dye, like you would normally dye eggs. Lauren Conrad did several versions of each egg, varying the time she let them soak. For example, she had three saffron eggs soaking and took one out at an hour, one out at two hours, and one out at three hours to get different levels of saturation.
- Take your eggs out of the dye when you feel they’ve reached the desired color.
