Botantical eggs

We had such fun dying eggs this year.  After seeing several Pintrest and blog ideas to dye eggs using natural foods, rather than artificial dyes, we thought we'd give it a go! 
So, off we headed to the woods...just outside...luckily we are surrounded by acres and acres of lovely forest.  We searched for interesting leaves. 

They we wet the leaves down onto a wet egg and secured them with cut pantyhose.

They we dyed the eggs two colors.  Yellow onion skins turn the eggs a beautiful red(perfect for Pascha!)
I also boiled some purple cabbage to make the most beautiful blue eggs!

Isn't the blue gorgeous!

I love all the interesting leaf prints!
