Dyeing and decorating eggs is an Easter tradition. The fun part is, there are so many ways to do it.
For this post I will select easy and natural way – ONION SKINS.
Yes, we are dyeing Easter eggs naturally with onion skins.My grandmother and my mother made the most beautiful Easter eggs using this method.
Now you can do it too. Just follow instructions below and you will hear comments like: ” Beautiful! Those are the prettiest Easter eggs I’ve ever seen!”
And smile. (because our life is the biggest joke …just watch TV).
Now, let’s do it!
To make this process success we will need the following:
-skin of organic yellow onions
-pantyhose (buy in $ Store)
-pot of boiling water
The eggs will come dark reddish-brown and you will impress your friends, family and your kids.
It is simple, easy and NATURAL!

I love your web site and I really want to try using onion skins for eggs. I am just not sure how much onion skin do I need to use? It says 6 to 10 lbs? So, what is the amount I should use and why is the huge range?
P.S. I love your pictures. My favorite ones are from your post “Dream Bars” and “Pink Hot Chocolate”.
You can use any amount you want. (confusing is it?)
If you use 6 or 7 lbs of the onion skins the color of eggs will be lighter compare to 9 or 10 lbs of skins.
So, my answer to you you can’t go wrong. Just have fun…be like kid and play with it…
