Hello hello! Happy Spring and Happy Easter! Holy cow, so much has happened since we went on hiatus from blogging. So much to share! With the amazing weather this weekend, I found it fitting to freshen up the blog a bit, and what better to start with than a Easter egg natural dye recipe experiment.
We have so many amazing weddings to share from last year, 27 weddings along with a ton of engagement sessions. But first, lets begin with some dyed eggs.
To start off with, here is what you will need:
White and Brown Eggs
Red Onion Skins (from approx a 3 lb bag)
White Vinegar (1 Tablespoon in each pot)
I used about 1/3 of a cabbage for each of the different blues (one with vinegar, one without) But! You can use a whole cabbage for a deep wonderful blue.
First, in each of your separate pots, put your ingredients in, trying to use little water- but enough to cover the eggs once they go in. After each pot is filled, and the eggs are placed- bring the pot to a boil for 15 minutes. Take the pot off the stove, and let it rest until it’s cool- then you put the pots in the refrigerator overnight. The next day, use a slotted spoon to carefully take the eggs out (not to disturb the dye film on the egg) and let them dry fully.
Arrange and enjoy!
*You can also boil the fruits and veggies in the pots separate, to create a dye solution- but time was of the essence this weekend, so I just put everything in together.
Had to use iPhone photos for these photos- my fingers were covered in dye. Hope the info-graph helps and cheers to all of the upcoming weddings and engagements to share! Happy Spring!
