Natural, speckled Easter eggs are so beautiful. You can make your own dyes from common household ingredients. So much prettier and more natural looking than the boxed dyes.

Use these all-natural dye recipes made from household ingredients to create Easter eggs in beautifully subdued shades. Leave eggs soaking in the dye in the refrigerator overnight for the richest colors.

Pink

1 cup pickled beet juice and 1 tablespoon vinegar

Lavender

1 cup grape juice and 1 tablespoon vinegar

Brown

1 cup strong coffee and 1 tablespoon vinegar

Blue
