Colouring Eggs 4 Easter

Hello my crafty wackys, how have you lot been lately?! Busy ?!-yeahp same here...

It seems to me that Easter is just around the corner everywhere I go this days have easter items on display, like ubber expensive chocolate eggs, like a medium one and I dare saying it again 1 at £10 to £15 pounds, its sheer robbery if you ask me... We all know we can make something better, and even cuter for a cheaper price, but that my friends will be another post, for today I thought why not right about to how to dye an egg?!! we see them everywhere around this holiday season, it is baskets, on top of traditional cakes, on an Easter hunting you name it...

So for this tutorial you'll need:
  • Toothpicks
  •  Food Colouring
  •  Spoons
  • White Vinegar
  • Cups
  •  Hard-boiled Eggs
  • Water
  • Metal Tongs
  • Empty Paper Towel Rolls

The Famous How TO:

Set out a cup or bowl for each colour. They must be deep enough to accommodate eggs.

Cut an empty paper towel roll into sections; you'll set your finished eggs on them to dry.

Stir the food colouring (found in the cake decorating section of craft stores)  into a cup or bowl with 1 cup of very hot water.Add some. white vinegar. and repeat the same process to the other colours.
Dip the hard-boiled eggs into the bowls using a metal spoon or tongs.Then you just need to place them on the egg holders to dry, after this is done it's up to you what you do with them ;)

See you soon ,
