Practical ideas to paint the Easter eggs with ecological methods
Now that Easter is close, it comes to the old remembrance of traditions, but especially our grandmothers who were preparing early to collect onion shells to paint Easter eggs. But not only in our country we meet this habit but also in other countries because more and more housewives choose to ecologically dye eggs by this method, despite the fact that this activity takes time. If you have not understood the subject of this article, we will say so. These are practical ideas for painting eggs naturally.
We are sure that all our readers are aware of this method of painting eggs with onion shells, but we have to tell you that there are other vegetables with which we can color them.
An ideal vegetable for dyeing eggs is red beets. You should be aware that the water in which the beets are boiled gives a shade directed to a red-purple rather than a bright red color.
For example, to have green eggs on the table, we can dye them in the water where we cook spinach or nettles.
The water in which the red cabbage boils colors the eggs in blue and not in red, as you may think.
The yellow is obtained from turmeric powder, a strong natural dye.
Did you know that the water in which coffee boils gives a brown shade? You can try it for a more rustic touch.
We can not fail to mention the prints you can get with the help of the sheets, but also for a less well-known method of obtaining geometric shapes with the help of rubber bands. Do not you believe us? See the images below.
