Easter is almost here, which means that you need to dye your eggs soon! Instead of opting for the classic egg-dyeing technique this Easter, you can do that in more interesting way – with leaf prints. It is easier than you think! For the project, you will need: hard-boiled white eggs, glasses for dyes (wide enough to hold an egg), a spoon, colorful dyes, a twist tie, old panty stockings, and leaves. The smaller the leaves are the better result will be. For example, you can use fern, dill, thyme, cilantro or mint leaves.
Step One: Take your stockings and cut 4-inch squares. As shown on the picture, lay a leaf on an old panty stocking and put an egg on top. Cover the egg with the rest of the sock to hold it in place. Then twist the ends together and secure them with a twist tie.Make sure it is tight!
Step Two: Carefully put your egg into the dye and let it soak for at least 10 minutes.
Step Three: Use a spoon to remove the egg from the dye. Allow the egg to dry completely before taking off the stocking! Make sure the leaf side of the egg is not touching anything while drying. After everything is dry, gently pull off the leaf. Your leaf print is ready!
