Here's a super easy way to make eggs that look like they've been tie dyed.

What you need:
hard boiled eggs
large metal colander
white vinegar (1/2 cup for a dozen eggs; use 1/4 on 6 eggs)
McCormick NEON food coloring
water and sink

You might not want to do this if you have a white sink that stains.



Place 6 hardboiled eggs in a large metal colander...they need some room to roll around, so do smaller batches if your colander is smaller. Splash with 1/4 cup of vinegar, then put one drop of food coloring on each egg and roll the eggs a little in the colander. Let set 30 seconds, then use a second color of dye on each egg and roll. Let set 30 seconds. Repeat with a third color if you want, but any more than that and the colors get muddy. After the last color sets for 30 seconds, lightly pour water over the eggs and let drain for 2-3 minutes. Put eggs on paper towels to dry.

Gosh, I REALLY love the colors of the eggs in the first picture.

I wish they were beads and not eggs so I could use them in jewelry.

Thanks, everybody!

@blackie.sage...I know what you mean. I see a lot of things I wish were beads!

@IamSusie...You could buy a "crafting colander" at the dollar store. I have a separate measuring cup, cutting board, and wooden/plastic spoons for crafting, because I don't like using the same utensils I use for food.  Smiley
