Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs

 Yesterday at a MOMS Club event, we dyed Easter eggs. Not your normal way, huh? This was such much fun! We put leaves, flowers etc on the eggs, then covered them in onion skins. After that you wrap a cotton square around it all and secure it with thread. Then put the package in a pot and boil the eggs like you normally would. After the boil time is up, drain the water from the pot. Take out the egg packages and let cool for a few minutes. Then unwrap to see what neat designs are left on the eggs. You can also use a little bit of olive oil to polish the eggs up to give them a shine.
