My natural Easter eggs

Hello everyone and hello dear ladies of the Ladies of Hive community. I hope you are all well and ready for a great weekend!

This is a holiday weekend in my country. We celebrate Easter tomorrow. Every year for Easter I paint eggs in different colors, but this year I decided to turn to nature and do something different. From childhood until today, the most delicious Easter eggs for me have always been eggs painted in onion skins. They have a special taste, although they do not look very attractive.

I went out with my son to pick some flowers and leaves to decorate the eggs.

He was choosing and was very happy about it. We picked a lot of different leaves, dandelions, clovers, daisies...

Then he suggested that we could cut paper in various shapes and also decorate eggs with it. I accepted the idea. We cut baking paper and made various shapes.

I cut out old tights. I put the decoration over the egg and wrapped each egg and tied it with string.

I first put onion skins in the cooking pot.

Then I put eggs over it.

And onion skins again. I poured water, apple cider vinegar, and a little salt and put it to cook on low heat.

And here are my Easter eggs. I coated them with sunflower oil to get a shine and my son stuck stickers on some of them.

They are not very attractive but they are natural. Lately, I've been trying to turn to nature whenever I can. I avoid everything that is artificially made and is not necessary. I don't need to have colorful eggs for Easter. I will be happy with these as well...

And my son found a way to bring colors to this holiday and he painted styrofoam eggs. 🙂

So, in the end, we were all happy and satisfied. 🙂

Thank you very much for reading.

The images and writing are original and mine.
