the colors, duke, the colors! [easter egg dying]

i love my holidays. and my traditions. and my people. it's so important to me that austin and i both continue these traditions with ansley. with Easter around the corner we really needed some colorful eggs around here, especially with all the dreary rain that we've had over the past few weeks. i couldn't resist then (hey, 2012! thanks for the reminder, blog) and obviously not now that i have my little partner by my side. this makes me so happy!! i came across a super easy way to go about dying eggs that i love so much!! the colors are so great! so much better than anything you can buy in the stores. i mean its MESSY and sure my hands are a bit stained despite the attempt at wearing latex gloves but loooook how pretty!!

you will need:
  • hard boiled eggs
  • shaving cream 
  • food coloring
  • vinegar
  • latex gloves (or sandwich bags would work!)
  • paper towels (!!!) 
  • muffin tin 
  • a tiny assistant (optional)

how to! 
  • let hard boiled eggs soak in vinegar for about five minutes
  • fill the muffin tins with shaving cream 
  • put on your gloves!!
  • place several drops of food coloring in each cup
  • swirl food coloring around in shaving cream
  • dip/roll/submerge :) egg in the cream
  • wipe off the excess with a paper towel 
  • put on a paper plate to dry
  • display!
