The neon colored eggs featured on Oh Joy have been making the rounds on the blogs this week so I thought we’d give them a whirl. I’d never dyed eggs without one of those little kits, and the only thing I missed was the wire dipper thing. Just use some food coloring, seriously. It’s so much easier.
My helper was with me right up until … step one. She squirted the coloring in the bowls and was soon deeply entrenched in something much more interesting, making “coffee” in the French press. Oh well, I am OCD about stuff like this so it’s best that I go it alone.
Mine aren’t as bright and pretty as the originals, mainly due to my impatience. I couldn’t wait for them to soak a long time, I was too eager to see the finished product.
The stripey one had a rubber band on it. Pretty cool. The orange and pink would’ve been awesome if not for the sneaky orange.
The crackly one cracked during boiling so I just took a spoon to it and made it a “design element.”
And since I love a good ombré, this one’s my favorite. The grass is just scraps from the shred bin. Reduce, reuse and all that.
