natural egg dyeing and vintage trim::

The sun was peeking through my kitchen window this morning as I gathered all the materials needed for this simple craft project: natural egg dyeing.
There are many recipes out on the web using veggies for this process. From blueberries to onions, I opted to dye eggs using a mild coffee instead. This project is very easy you'll want to create many decorative eggs in all kinds of patterns and hues. Tea can also be used but, I tried coffee first and I liked the outcome.

Here's what you'll need: 
large eggs {hard boiled}
mild coffee
vintage trims
glue stick

How to:
Add 1 tablespoon vinegar to 1 cup mild coffee. Steep for 5 minutes or until desired color.
Let eggs dry thoroughly. Cut various vintage trims in all different sizes. Be creative..
I secured with a glue stick to hold trim in place. Elmer's should work too or any other glue you have on hand depending on drying time.

  Let me know if you decide to try this easy Spring project. I would love to hear all your comments.
  Have a great weekend.. Now, back to clean up my mess!

These are pretty Liz. I think I would do these on eggs that are blown out so that I could keep them. They are very sweet.
