Yes, you saw this picture last year
This time last year I was posting about natural egg dyes and easter grass options. Can you believe it's been a year? (March 7th, actually).
As far as Easter preparations go, not too much has changed for me. I plan to do natural dyes again this year, but think I will try a different method. Last year I did the "cold" method. I looked at the directions by Martha Stewart and think that I might get more intense colors by boiling the eggs in the pots. Only problem with that is that the kids don't get to be very involved. I suppose I can do a few eggs both ways: boil some raw ones in the dye for 30 minutes and then strain the dye and soak some hardboiled eggs in the cool dye.
I'll reuse the shredded green paper that I used in the baskets last year and then fill them up with loads of candy full of high-fructose corn syrup! (just kidding, uh, sort of).
