NATURAL EGG DYEING





This year I decided to try egg dyeing with natural colors for Haft-Sin . I used red onion skins for brown, beets for purple, carrots for yellow and that white one supposed to be green with some green veggies!
I like their natural hues. I think I will do it in more different colors again.
:)


~ Simone : Well... there were two different groups of eggs. One group in the last post were used for pancakes! But I also dyed some eggs naturally with vegetables which were eaten the morning after new year celebration :)
~ Sara : Thank you so much dear girl! :)
~ michelle : Yes, you're so right. Their colors remind me the childhood days as well. Thank you dear! :)
~ janis : Thanks!
~ Daisy : Aw happy Nowruz to you too dear Daisy :)
~ Pravina Studio : Thank you :)
~ poet : It is always nice to have you here dear friend.
~ emily : Welcome back Emily.
~ Caroline : Thanks!
~ Mandy : Thank you for visiting Mandy. xo

I like their soft colours, too! So pretty! Did just boil the eggs along with the veggies?

What lovely natural colours. They make a nice change to the bright garish ones in the stores!

It's such a more natural look - the best thing about this is you can save your dies for some tie dye shirt afterwards - beautiful!

what a great idea, they all look so gorgeous!! maybe spinach would have added more green? Maybe you already tried that.
