So I will admit the idea for these drip dye Easter eggs came to me through a complete accident. Sometimes I find the best ideas happen that way. I love the tie dye look it creates and its just so unique! Use contrasting colours for the best results.
Hard-boiled or blown Eggs
In a 12 oz glass mix together 1 tbsp vinegar with 3/4 cup water and food colouring to achieve your desired shade. (See below for a handy guide to achieve the same brilliant colours I did using regular food colouring)
Use a spoon or tongs to gently place egg in the glass being sure that the egg is completely submerged.
Leave submerged for 5-10 minutes or so depending on how deep you want the colour.
Once you have achieved the colour you desire for your base, choose a contrasting food colouring and drop 2-3 drips into the water over the egg. Allow the food colouring to settle on the egg then carefully remove the egg from the water with a spoon.
Allow to completely dry then put up on display!
