Along with the onion skins we used spinach leaves, rice and herbs.
After wrapping the eggs in the onion skins we wrapped them in muslin and secured it with yarn and put them in a pot of water to boil. This cooked and colored the eggs at the same time.
Then we set to work on the other eggs. Most of the colors did not work as well as we would have liked, but we liked the results with the beet coloring.
We were all very curious about our onion eggs. Once they had cooled enough we were able to unwrap them to see our surprises.
We loved how these turned out.
