How to Dye Easter Eggs Naturally - Top Tips and Tricks for an Eco-Friendly Celebration!

By Ethika EU Bogdan Scrob | | 0 Comments

Easter is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than by dyeing Easter eggs with your loved ones? While there are many commercial egg dyeing kits available in stores, why not try something different and learn how to dye Easter eggs naturally using ingredients you already have at home? Not only is it a fun and easy activity for the whole family, but it's also an eco-friendly way to celebrate the holiday. In this article, we'll share our top tips and tricks for natural Easter egg dyeing.

Why Dye Easter Eggs Naturally?

Dyeing Easter eggs naturally has several benefits, including:

  1. Eco-Friendly: Store-bought dyes contain harmful chemicals that can be damaging to the environment. Natural dyes, on the other hand, are non-toxic and biodegradable, making them a more eco-friendly option.

  2. Healthier: Natural dyes are made from ingredients that are safe to eat, making them a healthier option than store-bought dyes, which can contain harmful chemicals.

  3. Fun and Creative: Dyeing Easter eggs naturally allows you to get creative with colours and patterns, making it a fun activity for the whole family.

What Ingredients Can You Use to Dye Easter Eggs Naturally?

You don't need to go out and buy special ingredients to dye Easter eggs naturally. In fact, you probably have everything you need in your kitchen already. Here are some common ingredients you can use to dye Easter eggs naturally:

Red Cabbage: produces a blue colour

Spinach: produces a green colour

Turmeric: produces a yellow colour

Onion Skins: produces a brown colour

Beets: produces a pink/red colour

Coffee: produces a brown colour

Black Tea: produces a tan/brown colour

    To dye Easter eggs naturally, you'll need to prepare natural dyes using the ingredients mentioned above. Here's how:

    1. Chop the ingredient into small pieces and place in a pot with enough water to cover the eggs.

    2. Bring the water to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 15-30 minutes. The longer you simmer, the deeper the colour will be.

    3. Strain the dye into a bowl and let it cool.

    4. Add 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to the dye to help the colour stick to the eggshells.

    5. Dip the eggs into the dye and let them soak until they reach the desired colour. The longer you soak, the deeper the colour will be.

    Top Tips and Tricks:

    • Experiment with different natural dyes: There are many fruits, vegetables, spices, and herbs you can use to create different natural dyes. Some of our favourites include blueberries, beets, turmeric, spinach, and onion skins.

    • Use white vinegar: White vinegar helps the dye adhere to the eggshell, creating more vibrant colours. For every cup of water, add a tablespoon of white vinegar.

    • Strain the mixture: Make sure to strain the natural dye mixture to remove any solids. This will help prevent speckling on the eggshells.

    • Play with patterns: Use crayons or wax to draw patterns or designs on the eggshells before dyeing them. The wax will resist the dye, leaving behind a beautiful pattern.

    • Keep the eggs chilled: If you plan on keeping your natural Easter eggs for a few days, make sure to store them in the fridge.


    Q: How long do natural Easter eggs last? A: Natural Easter eggs can last up to one week if stored properly in the fridge.

    Q: Can I dye brown eggs naturally? A: Yes, you can dye brown eggs naturally. However, the colours may appear darker or slightly different from white eggs.

    Q: How do I make a speckled effect on my Easter eggs? A: To create a speckled effect, dip a toothbrush in the dye and flick it onto the eggshell.



    In conclusion, dyeing Easter eggs naturally is a fun and creative way to celebrate the holiday while also being environmentally conscious. Using ingredients that you already have in your home, you can create beautiful and unique eggs that are sure to impress. Remember to be creative and experiment with different ingredients and techniques to achieve the perfect hue. Don't be afraid to get the whole family involved in this activity, as it is a great way to spend time together and create lasting memories. With our top tips and tricks, you can dye Easter eggs naturally with ease and enjoy a more sustainable holiday season. So, what are you waiting for? Get cracking and start dyeing those eggs today!
