Supplies to Make Tie-Dye Easter Eggs

  • 12 boiled eggs
  • Food coloring
  • Vinegar
  • spray bottle
  • Paper towels (Note: If there’s a pattern on the paper towels, the eggs may end up with a pattern! I used the half-sheet paper towels that did have a pattern.)
  • Small rubber bands, elastics, or string
  • Plastic gloves (optional)

*Use care when handling eggs.  

How To Dye Easter Eggs

Cover each egg in a paper towel and tie at the top with a string or rubber band.

Drop different colors of food coloring around paper towel, covering most of the paper towel.

Spray egg with vinegar mixture until colors cover egg completely and there’s no white space left.

Repeat until all eggs are covered. Make sure the paper towel is wet enough and sitting up against the egg to get color on the egg. You can test this by gently pushing the paper towel to the sides of the egg to make sure the color is touching the egg.

Set each colored egg on a tray for at least 10-15 minutes.

Slowly unwrap the eggs one by one.

*If you uncover the egg and it doesn’t look like it’s colored enough, you can retie the paper towel back on and spray more vinegar and water.

Your eggs should have a tie-dye look!
