Apparently, you are not limited to dying those Easter eggs with the box kit. There are pages and pages of different ways. Here are the highlights.

How To Make The Perfect Easter Basket

It’s many families’ tradition to dye Easter eggs and many, if not most of them, use the box kit you can find in every store this time of year. What if I were to tell you there are SO many more ways to make your eggs all pretty. Of course I will be trying these out for a video, part of the series The Internet Made Me Do It, so be on the look out for that. Coming soon to a computer/phone/tablet near you. Let’s get this started, 6 weird ways to color those Easter eggs.

Silk Ties

 

 

I wanted to start with my favorite. This, to me, is the weirdest one I’ve found. Apparently, you can transfer the color and pattern on the egg. Martha Stewart has all of the directions for you. Check them out here.

Shaving Cream

 

 

If I can make mine look half as good as the ones on the site, I’ll be happy. Using shaving cream and food color you can make really cool swirly and marbled looking eggs. Find out how here.

Natural Dye

 

 

If you eco-friendly, try out natural dyes. You can use fruits, veggies, and seasonings to make beautiful eggs. Avoid the chemicals from the dye tablets and use things like beets, red cabbage, and onions. Here is a list of natural dye ingredients.

Kool-Aid

 

 

Do you remember when you were a kid drinking Kool-Aid, which made your tongue and teeth bright red? If you are like me, this just happened to you the other day. Imagine how bright your eggs will be using Kool-Aid. Get the directions here.

Melted Crayons

 

 

This one is for older kids or adults, but still so cool. It required you to bake the eggs and go to work when they are hot. The heat from the eggs melts the crayon and creates really pretty designs when the wax cools. Find out more here.

Cracked Egg

 

 

This dying method is really for the egg itself rather than the shell. Dying the eggs with cracked shells create a beautiful patter on the egg. See how it’s done here.
