We decorated eggs mish mash style. A little bees wax drawing on some, rubber bands on others, olive oil in some of the dye bath and some got all three treatments. It was glorious! The boys had so much fun experimenting and I had fun taking part in their joy.
I always like to try something new (like I did two years ago here with the silk ties...a side note on dyeing eggs with silk ties...I noticed someone pinned my eggs with a caption saying they are not food safe-anyone know why? We ate ours with no side effects, but it's the first I have heard of this).
Anyway...back to something new. I wanted to try a natural dye with flowers for the eggs like these from Ulicam. With slim pickings in the garden, I went with feathers, but only had a handful to play with so only dyed four eggs this way.
I've got a little felting and stuffing to do on these two guys that I fully intend to have ready for the boys baskets in the morning...so I'd better get busy.
