Quick And Easy Easter Egg Decorating Tips From KRUPS

Are you tired of buying those $.99 Easter Egg dying kits? Want to get a little crazy at home with the kids? Well, KRUPS sent along a few really easy HOW TOs and I just had to share. KRUPS has provided some fun and creative methods for coloring eggs with the family. Roll up your sleeves, lay out the newspaper, and let the fun begin!

Bright and Marbled Easter Eggs:

Spread the newspaper over your work surface.

· Now prepare the dye for coloring your Easter eggs. You will need a separate cup or container for each color.
· In each container combine one tablespoon of each of the following: oil, vinegar, and your choice of food coloring.
· Add enough water to make the liquid deep enough to cover an egg.
· Swirl the liquid with a spoon, and quickly lower and raise an egg into it.
· Pat dry with a paper towel, and repeat with a second color.
· Swirl into a third color, if desired. Some white areas can be left on the egg.
· Gently pat dry the completed egg, leaving a bit of the oil to give the egg a varnished look.
· Place the finished eggs in a container, such as an empty egg carton to dry.

Once you’re finished with all of your eggs, store them in the refrigerator.

Speckled Easter Eggs:

Spread the newspaper over your work surface.

· Now prepare the dye for coloring your Easter eggs. You will need a separate cup or container for each color.
· Place one teaspoon of vinegar in each container. Add about 1-1/2 cups of hot water (hot tap water is fine) to the vinegar.
· Once you have the vinegar and hot water in the containers for your Easter eggs, add a few drops of food coloring to each container.
· Now dip each egg in the dye. Let the egg sit in the dye for several minutes to allow the color to adhere.
· Use a spoon to remove the egg from the dye and wipe the water off with a paper towel.
· To get soft pastel colors the eggs only need to bathe for a few minutes, then dry.
· To get the speckles: mix 10 drops of red and 5 drops of green food coloring in a small glass, a few drops of water and you have brown dye.
· To get the speckles use an old toothbrush, dip it in the brown, shake off excess. Point the toothbrush 6 – 10 inches from the egg. Run your finger across the bristles from front to back to get the splatter effect. (You might want to wear rubber gloves)!!
· Place the eggs in a container, such as an empty egg carton to dry.

Once you’re finished with all of your eggs, store them in the refrigerator.

Sparkly Easter Eggs:

Spread the newspaper over your work surface.

· Fill clear sandwich baggies with glitter, approximately ¼ cup of glitter in each bag. You will need a separate bag for each color.
· Now prepare the dye for coloring your Easter eggs. You will need a separate cup or container for each color.
· Place one teaspoon of vinegar in each container. Add about 1-1/2 cups of hot water (hot tap water is fine) to the vinegar.
· Once you have the vinegar and hot water in the containers for your Easter eggs, add a few drops of food coloring to each container.
· Now dip each egg in the dye. Let the egg sit in the dye for several minutes to allow the color to adhere.
· Use a spoon to remove the egg from the dye and remove any excess water with a paper towel.
· Transfer the egg to a sandwich baggie filled with glitter. Gently shake to cover the egg with the glitter.
· Place the eggs in a container, such as an empty egg carton to dry.

Once you’re finished with all of your eggs, store them in the refrigerator.

Naturally dyed Easter Eggs:

Spread the newspaper over your work surface.

· If you want to make designs on your eggs, you can draw on the eggs with crayons. The wax will not come off when you dye the eggs.
· Combine spices, vegetables, water and vinegar in assorted pots on every burner on the stove. (Example: Turmeric would yield a lovely gold. Chili powder would yield a beautiful rusted orange. Beets turned some eggs a pale pink).
· Now dip each egg in the dye. Let the egg sit in the dye for several minutes to allow the color to adhere.
· Use a spoon to remove the egg from the dye.
· Wipe the water off with a paper towel, and place the eggs in a container, such as an empty egg carton to dry.

Once you’re finished with all of your eggs, store them in the refrigerator.
