Easter Eggs Dyed with Lace & Onion Skin


  • onion shells (I used two handfuls of red and white onions shells)
  • white vinegar
  • raw eggs (washed)
  • fabric lace (I noticed that elastic polyester lace works much better than cotton one)

how to dye eggs with natural colourings


needle & thread

dyeing eggs with onion shells


  1. Wrap raw eggs into pieces of lace, secure sewing it with thread as tightly as possible.
  2. Place the eggs in a saucepan together with the dye and water, boil for as long as needed to achieve required shade (about 30 minutes).
  3. Add about 1 tbs vinegar to cup of cold water, dip each egg in it for a while to stop colour from running.
