Look no further than your pantry for natural egg-dying ingredients. Use camomile tea for a yellow tint, onion skins for deep orangey-red, blueberries or grape juice for pale purple and black tea bags for auburn. To make, simply boil one part dye ingredients to six parts water, then place hard-boiled eggs into the mixture and let soak until desired colour is achieved (anywhere from one hour to one day).
