How do you dye wooden eggs?
Here are the steps I took to dye wood eggs:
Insert liquid watercolors within plastic cups or containers.
Then, add a bit of water to the cups.
Note: Using food coloring? The process is the same and adding a bit of water is also applicable.
Then, insert the wooden eggs within each colored cup.
Let sit for a few hours or overnight.
Voila! You’ve dyed wooden Easter eggs.
Note: The colors are not as vibrant on wooden eggs when compared to an actual real egg.
The longer you leave the wooden eggs within the mixture, the more color it will absorb.
Can you dye wooden eggs with food coloring?
Yes, you can!
Dyeing eggs with food coloring would cause a more vibrant egg when compared to liquid watercolors.
We happened to only have liquid watercolors on hand and they worked great!
Next time, we will definitely try out coloring our wooden eggs with food coloring. 🙂
