How to Tie Dye Easter Eggs- forget the dip-dye kits and create vibrant, tie-dyed Easter Eggs with this simple technique. Great Easter craft for kids!
These tie dyed Easter eggs are so fun and easy to make. They are creating by wrapping an egg in a paper towel and then applying drops of food coloring to the towel. I love the texture the paper towels leaves!
For this post I have included both step-by-step instructions with pictures and a video tutorial.

How to Tie Dye Easter Eggs
Hard boiled eggs
Ties, rubber bands, or string to secure the paper towels
Spray bottle filled with water and 1 tablespoon white vinegar for each cup water
Plastic disposable gloves
Wrap the egg in a piece of paper towel and secure it at the top with a tie or rubber band.
Apply drops of food coloring directly to the paper towel. I left some white space in between the colors. If you saturate the paper towel with too much food coloring, the color can turn out muddy. You can experiment with different tie-dye patterns.
Lightly spray the paper towel with the water/vinegar mixture until the food coloring spreads out slightly. If you want vibrant colors, don’t wet the eggs too much.
Let the eggs dry for at least a few hours (overnight in the fridge is best). Then, unwrap and remove the paper towels.
