These are really simple and fun to make. The only trick is you will at first be working with raw eggs… so be careful!
fabric scraps or Nylon panty hose cut into lengths slightly longer than eggs.
Start by gathering some beautiful dye flowers, red cabbage leaves and/or onion skins. For dye flowers I like to use cosmos, pincushion, hollyhocks, pansies, marigolds, and coreopsis.
You will need to then find some cloth scraps or nylon hoses cut in lengths a bit longer than your eggs on each end.
If you’re using fabric scraps lay 1 flat and place some dye material in the center. Next lay your egg on top of it and place more petals, leaves, and/or skins around the other sides, folding up the scrap piece while you work to make them stay in place. Secure with a rubber band or knot at the top.
If you’re using nylons, tie a knot at the bottom and place your egg within. then fill in around the sides with a variety of dye material. Secure the top with a rubber band or by tying a knot.
Place your prepared eggs in a pot of water and boil as you would with normal hard-boiled eggs. Let cool and then un wrap your beauties.
