How to DIY Easter Egg Dying

How to DIY Easter Egg Dying

Make dying Easter Eggs easy and fun this year with these three decorative, kid-friendly ideas!

Foil-Wrapped Eggs

Cut out 8” Reynolds Wrap circles, place boiled egg in the center and wrap foil tightly around egg

Smooth foil out by gently running the opposite end of a spoon over the foil, applying light pressure to push air out.

Decorate with craft paint and place on foil ring to let paint dry.

TIP:  For younger kids, you can also use stickers to decorate.

Ombre Eggs

Create a small foil ring with Reynolds Wrap and place inside plastic cup—this will hold the egg straight and steady in the cup

Place egg on foil ring inside of the cup. Mix food coloring with water at a 2:1 ratio. Pour into side of cup until egg is 1/3 covered by dye mixture. Allow to sit for 10 minutes.

Add clear water to the cup until 2/3 of the egg is covered in dye mixture, leaving some of the egg exposed and allow to sit for 10 minutes. Add more clear water to cup until egg is completely covered and allow to sit for 10 minutes

Remove egg with a spoon.

Repeat with various colors.

Tie Dye Eggs

Lay a large, 10”x10” square sheet of Reynolds Wrap on a flat surface. Place a coffee filter in the middle.

Drop food coloring directly onto the coffee filter in a random pattern, using multiple colors. Wet a hardboiled egg and place in the center of the coffee filter.

Wrap egg completely and tightly with coffee filter and foil (foil should be on the outside). Allow to sit for 8-10 minutes.

Open up and enjoy!
