While there are plenty of chemical dyes and kitschy egg stickers in stores, why not try dying your eggs with natural, eco-friendly materials? If you Google that, you will find many natural colorants that you can use: coffee, turmeric powder, red cabbage, tree bark, leaf buds, flower petals and more. Here I will show you how to dye eggs using onion peels - one of the most ancients and still popular ways used in Lithuania, where Easter is one of the major holidays.
1. Place some onion peels in the stocking, put an egg inside. Expose some sides of the egg and cover the other sides with the peels. All of it will make different patterns on the egg shell.
Stretch the nylon, so the egg is snug inside (don't crush it!), then tie the stocking. Repeat with the remaining eggs and peels. You will end up with a string of eggs, like in the picture here.
Happy Easter Holidays!
