Dye Easter Eggs with Coffee

We've talked about using coffee to dye fabrics, however, with easter coming up, let's talk a little about using coffee to dye eggs.

So fire up your coffee maker and have some coffee ready to dye your easter eggs.

Brown Easter Eggs by Vera Kratochvil

To dye your eggs brown with the coffee you will need to add 1 tablespoon of vinegar to 1 strong cup of coffee. To add designs and patterns you will need to cut up some panty hose and use flowers or leaves pressed against the egg and then tightly tie the pantyhose around the egg to secure the leaf or flower so it doesn't move during the dying process.

Place eggs into the dye, and let them soak in the dye in the refrigerator overnight.

We would love to hear about your natural Easter egg dying experience!
