  • eggs - boiled
  • dye - safe, for eggs
  • parsley - leaves, or celery, clover, or geranium
  • cheesecloth
  • thread


Boil the eggs. Shred the parsley leaves into individual ones or into clusters. You can use small leaves of geranium, clover, celery or other plants that would make for a beautiful egg design.

Take a leaf and press it tightly to the egg. Carefully wrap the egg in a piece of cheesecloth or pantyhose fabric, and dip the eggs in the dyes. After 10 minutes, remove the fabric and leaf.

Eggs wrapped in a fabric with holes, such as old jerseys, lace fabrics, etc. turn out especially beautiful.

Leave the dyed eggs to dry on cardboard and polish them with an oily woolen cloth.
