LIST: Easy Ways to Dye Easter Eggs


Whipped Cream-Dyed Eggs: Add whipped cream to a baking dish, place drops of liquid food coloring ($9 for 10 colors, Amazon) on the surface, and use a toothpick to add a marble design. Then roll your eggs across the whipped cream to create bold and colorful eggs.

Rice-Dyed Eggs: If you have plain dry rice in your pantry, try this easy egg-dyeing method: Put a scoop of rice to a plastic cup, add a few drops of food coloring, drop an egg in, and gently shake.

Oil Marbleized Eggs: The secret to these colorful marbleized Easter eggs is hiding in your kitchen cupboard. Mix up your own egg dye by combining white vinegar and food coloring. Dip your dyed eggs in a vegetable oil and water mixture to create a pretty marble design.

Dyed Eggs with Food Coloring: One of the easiest ways to dye eggs at home uses just three ingredients. Skip the messy store-bought dye tablets and mix food coloring, vinegar, and water to create your own colorful egg dyes. Dip plain eggs in the mixture (the longer you leave them the deeper the color will be) then store them in the fridge until it's time to whip up a delicious Easter brunch recipe.

Tie-Dye Eggs: To get the nostalgic pattern, wrap your eggs in a paper towel and spray with a mixture of vinegar and food coloring. It's so easy, kids of all ages will be able to help! Just be sure to get your eggs back in the fridge within two hours so you can eat them later.
