While we love the bright colors associated with spring, there is something about the natural hues that appear this time of year that has us looking forward to warmer weather. This Easter, instead of soaking our eggs in store-bought dyes, we decided to embrace all that mother nature has to offer and steep them in our favorite flavors of tea. This experiment was so fun to do with family and friends and the colors and textures we got were completely unexpected. However, the best part about this whole thing was walking away without any dye staining our clothes or fingers! Watch the video below to learn how you can naturally dye eggs at home.
What You’ll Need
- Hard-boiled eggs
- Loose leaf tea - we used:
