Keep things natural and chemical free by using natural dyes rather than the pricey store-bought variety. Our preferred property management company, Williams and McDaniel, has put together some natural dyes that residents of the Embassy Apartments and Mill Place Apartments can use in their elaborate Easter displays.

 

Start by hard-boiling eggs and letting them cool. Next, it is time to prepare the natural colors that will embellish them. For best results, make each color separately. Bring all your colors to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover for 30 minutes and add 1/8 cup of distilled white vinegar. Below are some natural ingredients that will give Easter eggs a festive pop of color.

 

Blue

Chop one red cabbage into two-inch chunks, cover with water and cook as per the instructions above for a blue hue. Pick up any ingredients you might need at Metro located at 150 First Street. The Mill Place Apartments are a five-minute drive and 21-minute walk from the store.

 

Red

There are multiple ways to naturally achieve a red color. One method involves one to three pounds of unpeeled, cut red beets. Beet juice is another option. Combine the juice of a can of beets with hot water and submerge your egg into the mixture for a reddish tint.
Rusty Brown

Combine six to eight brown onion skins with water to create a beautiful rusty brown coloring on your eggs.

 

Beige/Taupe
Use ½ cup of ground coffee mixed with four cups of water for a beige/taupe hue.

 

Violet

If you have overly ripe blueberries, use them to dye your eggs. Simply squeeze them to release the juice and add a few tablespoons of water. Add the eggs into the mixture and in minute you’ll have a gorgeous violet hue. Located at 500 Riddell Road, Sobeys has the ingredients and supplies you need for your Easter decorating. The Embassy Apartments are a seven-minute drive and 45-minute walk from the store.

 

Yellow

You can achieve yellow coloring by using three tablespoons of dried turmeric mixed with water or by boiling the peels of yellow onions in water. Either of these will yield yellow dye that you can decorate your eggs with.

 

Pink

Add some pastel tones to your eggs with some cranberry juice. Pour cranberry juice in a bowl and soak your eggs in it for a few minutes. You’ll soon have the perfect pink hue for your Easter decorations.

 

If you’re in need of more colors, Meyamo has created an instructional guide to creating handmade fruit and vegetable-based paints. Located at 8 First Avenue and 17 Church Street, Williams and McDaniel’s Embassy Apartments and Mill Place Apartments offer current and prospective residents ideal rental options in Orangeville.
