DIY: Dyed easter eggs

I followed this great tutorial for dyed easter eggs. This was so much harder than I thought it would be. Below you can read how I made them.

Eggs, leaves, nylon stockings, rubber bands, food coloring, glass of water, white vinegar

How to
1. Wrap the a leaf around the egg and secure it with a piece of nylon stocking and rubberband
2. Add food coloring and a teaspoon of white vinegar to a glass of warm water
3. Place the egg in the colored water for about 5 minutes
4. Remove the egg from the water and carefully remove the nylon stocking so it can dry

Wear gloves, the food coloring will stain your hands.
