Natural Easter Egg Dye Recipes Showcase

For the last several years I have wanted to make our own natural Easter egg dyes. Every year we seem to run out of time before Easter and end up doing a quick round of dying with the standard grocery store dye kits. This year though, I am determined to make our own dyes. We stocked up on supplies this weekend including a jar of beets, red cabbage, blueberries, and yellow onions. Hopefully the kids will be enthusiastic helpers and not miss the dye tablets. I love how soft and natural the homemade dye colors appear.

I have rounded up a handful of recipe posts from around the web to get some ideas. Most of them use the same ingredients and are very similar, but I added all the links for color inspiration. One of the sites even shows how brown eggs dye up with the same colors. The brown eggs have such a rich, deep color. It has encouraged me to buy some brown eggs this year to try dying, which is something I have never done before. Hopefully if all goes well we will have our very own natural Easter egg dye color guide to share later this week.

I would also like to ask you, our readers, if you have any favorite natural dye recipes? Blue, yellow, and brown seem easy enough, but some other colors seem harder to come by. Has anyone had success with green?

  1. Isn’t it interesting that nature puts green all around us but makes it so hard for us to reproduce it? I once took a natural dyeing class for wool yarns and our instructor told us that green was the most difficult color to make. The standard method for producing green yarn was to first dye the yarn yellow, let it dry then overdye it in a vat of blue (indigo). I wonder if twice dying would work with eggs.

      Green is a tricky color. Twice dying is a good idea. I may try mixing some yellow and blue together too… but I think the twice dying may work better.
