  • 1 cup hot water
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 20 drops food coloring (1 color or mix colors, example ( red and yellow for orange, blue and red for purple, etc.)


  1. DECORATING THE EGGS: Wrap different sized elastic bands around eggs. Wrap them snugly but not tight enough to break the eggs - OR tie string around eggs in a random or set pattern - OR use a white crayon to write words, make a design or pattern on your eggs - OR place tape on eggs to create a pattern or stripes around the eggs - OR place shaped stickers on the eggs. They can be shapes, letters, numbers, etc.
  2. DYING THE EGGS: For each color, mix hot water, vinegar and food coloring in a heat proof, narrow, deep dish, such as a canning jar. Mix the colors to your preference. Use 20 drops of just one color or combine colors to create many different shades and hues.
  3. Using tongs, submerge eggs for 3-5 minutes for a lighter shade and up to 10 minutes for a deeper shade. Remove with tongs.
  4. DRYING THE EGGS: You can set the eggs on wax paper if you can set the eggs on the elastics, tape or stickers. Let eggs dry for 1 to 2 hours and refrigerate - OR you can poke many flat head pins on a thick piece of cardboard or foam board. Set eggs on top of the pins. Let eggs dry for 1 to 2 hours.
  5. Remove whatever decorating items you used and refrigerate.
