leaf silhouettes on eggs died with onion skins

Kate, Eliza, and I tried dying eggs with all sorts of natural dyes this weekend. Almost all of the dyes we made (from beets, red cabbage, turmeric, paprika, yarrow) colored the eggs almost not at all, but the dye made from onion skins worked! It turned the eggs a deep sepia color, and thanks to inspiration from Leigh Leffler, we knew how to ghost some leaf and flower silhouettes onto the eggs (hint: old stockings are involved). Haven't had so much fun "crafting" in a long time!

  1. These are so lovely. Would be a fun project with the grands anytime of the year. So what's the stocking secret?
