For most of my childhood coloring eggs, wearing fancy hats and chocolate bunnies were an integral part to my family’s annual celebration of Easter. I’ve been carrying on the tradition with my own kidlets, but I’ve officially had it with those Easter egg coloring/dye kits. They’re so messy and my eggs never turn out as vibrant, fancy or pretty as the ones featured on the kit’s packaging.
So when I read in our church bulletin a few weeks back that a woman from our parish was going to host a workshop demonstrating how to dye eggs with onion skins, I was intrigued. I had never heard of this technique before, but from what I could find out it looks like its roots are in the Greek culture. As you seem, the results are beautiful and unique looking Easter eggs!
