A Natural Look For Your Easter Eggs

The kids were out in the rain this morning (not that it bothered them) collecting different leaves to decorate their eggs. In the meantime I stripped onions of their skins and put them in a pan of water. When they got back we put the leaves on the eggs and fixed them with tights and thread.

When all the eggs were done I put the pan on the stove and left it to heat up. Our eldest son carefully put the eggs in to the water and we left them to boil for 10 minutes. Once they’ve cooled down, rub them with some olive oil for a shiny touch.

There you have it! Naturally colored Easter eggs.

If you want to give it a go you’ll need the following materials:

white eggs
a pair of tights
some thread
a bowl of onion skins

Have Fun!

    Definitely not a typical Easter egg post! I remember seeing these done before when I was a kid. They turn out BEAUTIFUL! While I can totally appreciate them, I’m not sure my 5 & 3 year old would feel the same way.

    A work of art! The instructions are perfectly easy, but I can tell right now mine wouldn’t turn out that beautiful.

  5. when I was a kid I used to decorate Easter eggs by boiling them with onion peels and then scratching patterns on them with a needle. But I naver thought about adding leaves on them.. this is genious!

  6. Oh my goodness, I LOVE this. My favorite design aesthetic is anything natural-looking or reminiscent of the outdoors, so I will definitely have to try this next year! My daughter will be 2 around next Easter, so I bet she’ll love finding some leaves to decorate her eggs with. Thanks for posting! 🙂 Love your site, by the way!
