And then it was time to put them into the dye! Besides beets, purple cabbage and tea, we also put some powdered turmeric in water with vinegar for a yellow dye. And we made two dyes from boiling different kinds of onion skins, adding vinegar to each dye.
Below is yellow onion skin dye.
The finished products! I love how the eggs from each dye came out different shades than each other. So cool.
Red onion skin dye. They almost look wooden, don't they?
Purple cabbage dye:
(I LOVE the color of the one sitting on top, andthe robins egg blue one in the bottom left corner. Also, check out the emu egg colored one on bottom!
Tea dye, kinda didn't work very well:
Yellow onion skin dye! Made a gorgeous orange.
Beet dye. Look at all the different shades of red, pink and purple!
All of them:
I love the blue and white one sitting on top to the left.
Doesn't this one look like lava?
I love how all the colors are so rich and earthy and natural. So much more beautiful to my eyes than fake color.
Do you have a favorite thing to do at Easter?
I felt I should end with something meaningful for this glorious holiday, but I don't really know what to say that hasn't been said before. I'm just so thankful for Christ and his life.
I love the words in this song. It's says so much so perfectly.
I hope you all have a beautiful Easter!
