DIY turquoise Easter eggs

Easter is just a week away so I decided it was time to dye some eggs. While the kids are busy with their egg holder and paint brush I am working on my own project: dyeing eggs in different shades of turquoise.

Haven’t dyed your Easter eggs yet and looking for an easy project? These pretty turquoise eggs make an easy and inexpensive Easter decoration. All you need are eggs, a simple Easter egg kit and some patience.

To get inspired, I always visit Pinterest. I made an Easter Pinterest board with ideas for Easter decorations and just pretty pictures. Lots of spring flowers, mostly white, pansies ànd, of course, lots of eggs.

I just love the ombré Easter eggs. Ombré is a painting technique where colour gradually changes from dark to lighter shades. There are two ways to achieve this effect: an ombré effect on a single egg, but I especially like a group of eggs dyed in graduating hues to give an overall ombré effect. You can use any colour but I immediately fell for the blue and blue-green ombré eggs. I love turquoise, the colour and the stone. The colour of turquoise can vary from a light blue to a deep green. I want to paint my eggs in lots of different shades of blue-green.

Supplies needed:

  • White eggs (not easy to find, by the way, most stores only sell brown eggs)
  • An egg dye kit
  • Vinegar
  • Glasses or glazed cups
  • Kitchen paper

Begin by washing your eggs and hard boiling them. I boiled my eggs for about 10 minutes.

Prepare the paint. I used an egg-dyeing kit consisting of 6 dye tablets and a wire dipper. For this project, I only used the yellow, blue and green tablet.

Put the tablets in the glasses. I created two shades of blue-green by combining the blue and green tablets. Use three-quarters of a blue tablet and one-quarter of a green tablet for one glass and three-quarters of a green tablet and one-quarter of a blue tablet for another glass. Add two tablespoons of vinegar to each glass and just enough hot water that allows you to submerge the entire egg. Or prepare your dyes according to the instructions on the packet.

To create different shades of turquoise, I simply varied the time of the eggs in the dye. The longer they are left in the dye, the darker the colour. To achieve even more different hues just transfer the eggs from glass to glass. I tried almost all combinations, first yellow than blue-green, first blue-green than green-blue etc.

Put the eggs on the kitchen paper to catch the drips and let them dry on an oven rack.
