Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs!

I debated whether to post this or not. I mean, look at the eggs! Definitely not Instagram worthy… I wanted to try a natural egg dye this year and decided to try out two colors – a pink and blue dye. I read a bunch of articles on fruits and vegetables you can use to brew your own dye at home, so I picked up a bunch of beets and box of blueberries.

As you can see my eggs are only one color. You may be asking, “Hey Sarah, I thought you were going to try a beet dye for your pink eggs.” Well, you are right. That was my plan, but then something horrible happened. I BURNT MY BEET DYE! Yes, I burnt it!

I made the mistake of having the burner on too high and I essentially boiled off all my water and singed the beets. Please don’t make this mistake! The smell of burnt beets is not pleasant…

In the end, I was left with my blueberry dye. I was happy to see the blueberry conception did in fact dye my eggs, but it was not the blue shade I had in mind. If you are interested in making your own dye at home, here is the recipe I followed! Let me know if you have better luck than I did!

If you have used a natural egg dye before, I would love to hear you tips in the comments!

Multi-tasking for the win! Listening to the inspiring speakers at #therisesummit today while I work on #design projects. Is there anything better to wake up to than the sweet smell of cinnamon rolls fresh out of the oven? This recipe takes patience, but the end result is well worth the wait!
