Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs

Natural dyes can be fun to work with and you might be surprised at the colours that can be found in your kitchen. Each of these Easter eggs were dyed using a microwave. As I had some dye left over, I also dyed a bit of wool with each dye batch.

If you are not a handspinner, you can do this project using already spun wool. Save the dyed fleece or spun wool.

After Easter, you can use the wool for weaving a small tapestry. I will be posting instructions for building a small loom using a cardboard box.
