Safety Tips

Steps

Step 1 Tie-Dye Easter Eggs 1. Place a sheet of plastic wrap underneath several layers of paper towel.
Step 2 Tie-Dye Easter Eggs 2. Mix water with a bit of white vinegar in a spray bottle. Moisten the paper towel by spraying with this vinegar mixture.
Step 3 Tie-Dye Easter Eggs 3. Place several drops of food coloring all over the paper towel. Two to three colors provide interesting tie dye effects. Too many colors results in muddy, less vibrant mixtures.
Step 4 Tie-Dye Easter Eggs 4. Place an egg in the middle. Gather the edges of the paper towel towards the egg.
Step 5 Tie-Dye Easter Eggs 5. Hold the paper towel tightly close to the top of the egg to ensure a snug wrap. Spray with the vinegar solution until the paper towel is soaked.
Step 6 Tie-Dye Easter Eggs 6. Gently squeeze out any excess vinegar solution before wrapping in plastic wrap. Secure the top end with a rubber band. Allow the colors to soak in for at least 1 hour. The longer it sits, the deeper the colors will be.
Step 7 Tie-Dye Easter Eggs 7. Unwrap to reveal a cool tie-dyed egg.
