Readers Natural Dyed Easter Egg Results


Here are some of my readers results following the advice from my post.

Kim used canned beet juice for the pink, coffee for the brown, and blueberries for the blue/purple.  I love her results!


Sometimes things don’t always go as planned.  One reader who wishes to remain anonymous used blackberries that were starting to go bad, and got more of a red/brown colour instead of a blue.  They’re still really pretty!

Also, thanks for all the shares, likes and pins of the original post.  It got picked up by National Viral.
