How not to dye Easter eggs.

This year our dying of Easter eggs was a bit of a challenge. I have a hard time finding white eggs so this year I thought I would be clever and dye duck eggs. This was a mistake. I don’t think duck eggs absorb dyes and it took me an entire day of trying different things before it got some color. A bit annoying as it’s A FREAKING EASTER EGG!! Gah!

So my tip for dying Easter eggs- don’t use duck eggs.

    Irrespective of the struggles these were some of the prettiest eggs I saw all weekend. They’re almost a bit Liberty-esque!
