3 NON-Messy Ways to Dye those Eggs!

EggTastic Update on 3 different Egg Dying Methods!

Easter 4

 

1) Cool Whip Dye

2) Rice in a baggie Dye

3) Old School Box Kit (Which did have bags over cups!)

*Of course follow direction of boiling eggs and vinegar for ALL 3 described dying methods- See instructions in #1**

ALL three DID work with some variation.

1) Cool Whip. More of a pastel tie-dye effect. Pretty! Directions: Boil Eggs. Once done, spread boiled eggs out on dish towel to dry. Place eggs (gently) one at a time in plastic cup of vinegar. Set back on dish towel to dry. While eggs are cooling/drying, spread Cool Whip in glass pan, drop a few drops of food coloring here and there and use toothpick to “SWIRL” mixture.

Place egg(s) in Cool Whip and roll around until covered. Leave in the mix a few minutes before removing and wiping off excess Cool Whip.

2) Rice in a Baggie. Now this DOES work, HOWEVER… the rice sucks up so much of the dye, that we found this worked best. Add rice to baggie. Add desired color(s) mix well. Then add boiled egg and add a drop or TWO more of desired color(s) before sealing bag to gently swirl egg around rice.

3) We bought a kit ($2.00) that was GEL based and had baggies over dyes in cups. MUCH LESS MESS and very, very VIBRANT eggs. The directions were simply place boiled egg in baggie. Pick one or more of the gel dye colors (3 included in the kit) and drop a few drops down INTO the baggie and ONTO the egg. Gently swirl egg in the bag until desired color reached. OUR kit also came with glitter so before they dried but after we pulled them out and set them in the drying spots on the package, we sprinkled glitter on.

Finished Product!

 

The Light Pastel eggs were Cool Whip, the the solid red and orange as seen in the 1st pic were actually rice… the super dark colors were the gel dye.

Happy Easter Egg Dying!

Blurb: Cathy has hit that ‘married for so long’ slump and, coupled with the news that she can’t have children, she has become quite distant. Her adoring husband Dan surprises her with a Twelve Days of Christmas trip. All is well and spicy, with Partridges in Pear Trees—or at least, owls on totems poles—until a cryptic text arrives on his cell.

A text that might end their marriage for good.

But a tragic freeway accident has Cathy re-evaluating what’s most important in life. As things become clear, the only question left is whether she is too late, or if just maybe she’ll get all she wants for Christmas after all.
