You'll be hopping with excitement for this natural egg dye!
Did you know red cabbage can be used as a natural blue dye? We were hopping with excitement and curiosity while creating this blue ombre Easter egg decoration.
Note: We used white eggs. Brown eggs will have a green hue with the natural red cabbage dye.
Chop red cabbage.
Cover red cabbage with 1" of water and boil for 1 hour. Drain dye through mesh strainer into a measuring bowl. For every cup of dye add 1 tablespoon of distilled vinegar.
Submerge white hard boiled eggs into dye until desired color.
Tip: Our lightest blue eggs were submerged for 30 minutes. Our darkest blue eggs were submerged for 8 hours (overnight).
