Naturally Dyed Easter Eggs: Rusty-Red/Pink Color

  • Author: Jennifer Regan / Bamboo Core Fitness


These naturally dyed, rusty-red colored Easter eggs are much more beautiful than the neon-colored eggs created with traditional Easter egg coloring kits.


  • 3-4 cups of tightly packed onion peels
  • 3-4 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • Hard-boiled, white eggs


  1. Place three to four cups of tightly packed red onion peels into saucepan.
  2. Pour enough water to cover about one inch above the onion peels.
  3. Add 1 tablespoon vinegar and 1 tablespoon salt to the pot.
  4. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 30 minutes, or until desired color is reached.
  5. Strain onions with slotted spoon, reserving the liquid for dyeing.
  6. Remove the pan from the heat.
  7. Add eggs to dye.
  8. Leave eggs in dye until they reach the desired color.
  9. Remove eggs and place on a drying rack or an upside down egg carton.
  10. For a slight shine, coat eggs in coconut oil.


Brown eggs will turn a maroon color while white will turn pink.
