Natural Easter Egg Dyes ~Pinterest Challenge

Welcome to the March Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! So this month, I chose to try natural Easter egg dyes.  I found my inspiration here:  Natural Easter Egg Dyes.

You've probably seen that post floating over Facebook about making Easter egg dyes out of natural ingredients. For this Pinterest Challenge, I decided to give them a try.

The ingredients start off simple enough:  1 quart of water, 1 T salt, 2 T vinegar and 2 T of a natural color dye.  Bring all that to a boil, reduce heat and let steep for 30 minutes.  Remove solids, and then ladle the colored water into a mug.  Add an egg and let set for 20 minutes, or longer for a deeper color.

We tried parsley, spinach, beets, coffee, saffron, tumeric, blueberries, red cabbage, red wine and saffron.  Not all the colors turned out well, but some were quite pretty.  I would consider this a success but I would probably not do the red wine one again.

Now let's see what other things Pinterest inspired! Head over and visit the other hosts to see what they crafted, cooked, built, or tried!
