    DIY Natural Easter Egg Instructions:

    Step 1: Chop up 4 beets and put them into a saucepan with 5 cups of water. Bring to a boil, turn down to medium heat and let beets simmer for about 20 minutes.


    Step 2: With a fine mesh strainer, strain your beets (can add them to your salad for dinner later, yum) and add in 1.5 tbsp of white vinegar. Vinegar helps the beet dye bind to your egg. Let cool.


    Step 3: Place your hard boiled eggs in a container like a bread loaf pan, and cover them with the beet juice. Let eggs sit in the beet juice for 20-30 minutes to dye them. If you want your Easter eggs a lighter pink shade, remove them sooner. For darker eggs, let them sit long as desired, even up to overnight.

    Step 4: Dry off your beet-dyed Easter eggs, being careful not to rub the beet dye too much or it will come off the egg.

    Step 6: Start off with coloring a circle on your beet-dyed Easter egg with the lightest pink marker. Then take the next marker shade and go over the same circle a bit adding more depth of color. Finally, with your darkest pink shade add even more color.

    Here are some frequently asked questions about hand painting Easter eggs:

    1. How do I prepare eggs for painting?

      • Answer: Start by boiling or emptying the eggs. If boiling, let them cool completely before painting. For blown eggs, rinse the inside with water and let them dry. This ensures a clean surface for painting.

    2. What type of paint is best for Easter eggs?

      • Answer: Acrylic or tempera paints work well for Easter eggs. They provide vibrant colors and adhere nicely to the eggshell. Make sure the paint is non-toxic and safe for decorative use.

    3. Can I use markers or pens on Easter eggs?

      • Answer: Yes, you can use fine-tipped markers or pens designed for egg decorating. These provide more control for intricate designs and can be less messy than paint.

    4. How can I create intricate designs without smudging?

      • Answer: Allow each section of your design to dry before moving on to adjacent areas. This prevents smudging and helps maintain the sharpness of your details. Patience is key!

    5. Should I seal my painted eggs?

      • Answer: Sealing painted eggs with a clear varnish or Mod Podge can protect the design and add a glossy finish. Ensure the sealant is non-toxic and suitable for decorative purposes.

    6. Any tips for beginners on drawing patterns or designs?

      • Answer: Start with simple patterns like dots, stripes, or swirls. Use pencil lightly to sketch your design before applying paint. Practice on a spare egg or paper to build confidence.

    7. How do I fix mistakes or smudges on painted eggs?

      • Answer: If the paint is still wet, gently wipe off the mistake with a damp cloth. For dried paint, carefully scrape off the error using a small blade or nail. Touch up the area with fresh paint as needed.
