Hi The Life of a Not So Ordinary Wife readers! I'm Kimberly and I blog over at A Night Owl, a blog about the evening antics of a working mom! I'm wife to my best friend Andre, and mother to two adorable boys, AJ and Alex. In my "spare time" you can likely find me on Instagram, and I enjoy crafting, photography, thrifting, parties or a quick and easy recipe. I was thrilled to sponsor Melissa this month because we have so many similar interests - one being the crafty side of things. So I thought I'd share with you these easy Ombre Easter Eggs I made last year - since Easter this year is now just one month away!
Here's what you'll need:
- Hard Boiled Eggs
- Food Coloring
- Hot Water
- Egg Holder (I used a small ladle)
And here are the steps:
- Lay out 4 cups for dipping the eggs.
- Add 1 teaspoon of white vinegar to each cup.
- Add 3/4 cup of HOT water to each cup.
- Then, vary the amount of food coloring you add to each cup, increasing it from the first to the last. I chose to use 10 drops, 1/8 tsp, 1/4 tsp, and 1/2 tsp.
- Then starting with the first cup with the least amount of coloring and dip the egg all the way in.
- With the second cup, only dip the egg 3/4 of the way in, the third cup 1/2 of the way in, and the last one only 1/4 of the way end so only the bottom of the egg is in the darkest colored water.
- You may have to play with how long you dip the egg in each cup to determine how dark you want the result.
I chose to do this process with three different colors and I love how they turned out! Who knew Easter eggs could be so trendy?
