(Our family has so much fun dying our eggs with NATURAL FOOD DYES straight from the pantry.  The colors are SO BEAUTIFUL...rustic and soft.  You should give this approach a try this year...its a TON of fun! Soaking them overnight brings out the richest colors...so do this 2 nights before easter so you aren't "scrambling" the morning of to dry them out...yes, pun intended! ~Misty)

 

Use these all-natural dye recipes made from household ingredients to create Easter eggs in beautifully subdued shades. Leave eggs soaking in the dye in the refrigerator overnight for the richest colors.
