Naturally Dyed Eggs

Naturally Dyed Eggs

Dye your Easter eggs using supplies you already have at home! No need to buy tie dye kits for this project, we'll be using supplies from the nature!

What you need

Materials Needed:
1. Coffee powder, turmeric powder, chilli powder, onion skin, green spinach, purple spinach etc.
2. White vinegar
3. Small pots and bowls
4. Eggs


Clean and boil eggs before getting started. Be careful not to break the egg shells while boiling or during the next steps.

Take small bowls or cups and add the items for colour. I used coffee powder, turmeric powder, chilli powder,  purple spinach, blueberry and red cabbage. Add water and white vinegar to each bowl and mix them well with the colouring items.

Finally add the eggs to the bowl. Keep them soaked in the bowl for about an hour or you can also boil them individually for 15-20 minutes for a quicker process.

If you boil the eggs, take them out of the pots if the eggs are dyed and place them in another bowl and soak them with cold water. Allow them to cool down.

And done! I’ve used only 6 items to dye the eggs, there are many other items you can use for natural dying, such as – red cabbage, saffron, tea, blueberry, beets etc.


  1. But what do you do to the red cabbage, spinach and blueberries to get the dye?
