"This is really cute. I like how the pom poms add a little touch of color and pep to the wreath without overwhelming the natural look of the pine cones."
"Love it, will try to make"

"Learning how to dye Easter eggs is as traditional Easter as anything can be! With this classic technique, you’ll have your very own DIY gorgeous vibrant eggs fit for any Easter table. How To Dye Easter Eggs Every year I sit around the table with my kids and we dye our eggs together. I have such treasured memories of seeing them learn how to dye easter eggs. I would watch their eyes light up the first time they see an egg turn from plain white to vibrant blue, pink, yellow, or green. And with this method, you don’t need any special kits or tools! In fact, most of what you need is probably right in your pantry. Of course, you’ll just need some Easter M&M Cookies to snack on while you make them! This Easter activity is 100% kid-safe and kid-approved so get ready for some serious Easter fun!"
Primary TechniqueFood Crafting
- Boiling water
- White vinegar
- Food coloring, liquid or gel
- Hard boiled eggs, cooled
You’ll be surprised by how simple it is to dye your own Easter eggs! First, you’ll want to boil your water.
Next, fill however many cups you will be using with enough boiling water to cover an egg.
Add 1 teaspoon of white vinegar to each cup and about 20 drops of liquid food coloring or 1-3 drops of gel food coloring.
To color the eggs, use tongs to dunk them into the desired color of water and let sit for about 5 minutes, turning the egg occasionally. For more vibrant colors, leave the egg longer. For pale colors, leave in the water for less time.
This is your time to get creative! Test out different colors together, mix it up or even try speckling your eggs!
Remove the eggs and place on a paper towel to dry completely.
