This is a nice project for Easter Day or just for a fun decoration. Boil some eggs and spend 30 minute quality time with kids and keep a long-lasting good memory. This project is fun and easy. Here is the step by step instructions.
- Put a leaf on an egg, then cover it with a section of nylon stocking to keep the leaf on the the egg.
- Pull together both open ends of the stocking, then twist the ends together and secure them with a rubber band.
- To make each dye bath, add 1/2 cup warm water, 1 teaspoon vinegar, and 10 to 20 drops of food coloring in a glass and mix well. Carefully submerge the nylon-wrapped egg in the dye bath and let it soak for about 4 minutes.
- Use a spoon to take the egg out from the dye bath and set it on a covered work surface. Carefully remove the rubber band, nylon, and leaf. Allow the egg to dry completely before further handling it.
