What you need to decorate galaxy Easter eggs:

  • Dip dyed egg
  • Paper towel
  • Rubberband
  • Food coloring
  • Container
  • Vinegar

Start this egg decorating with an egg that is already dip dyed. The egg pictured had about 20 blue drops and 4 green drops as the base coat. It soaked in the dyed water for about 5 minutes before being dipped in vinegar to set.

1 | Wrap

Take your colored egg and wrap it in a paper towel. The paper towel doesn’t need to be super tight, but it should be touching much of the surface of the egg. Twist the top of the paper towel to hold it in place or use a rubberband.

2 | Color

Now, take your food coloring and squeeze a few drops on the paper towel randomly. You can also give your child the food coloring while you hold the egg to get them involved. When you do this, push the color onto the egg surface and then let up. This helps give the feathered effect as the food coloring spreads on the paper towel.

Continue adding spots of color around the egg leaving areas without color. I just did blue, but you could add multiple colors for a different tie-dyed inspired look.

3 | Dip

Next, take your egg, still wrapped in the paper towel, and dip it in a container with vinegar. This helps spread the color and set the color.

4 | Rest

Now, set your egg aside until the color has set. Be sure to limit touching the egg until it’s dried.

And that’s all there is to it. They really turned out gorgeous and look just like a galaxy! What do you think?

  1. When you dip your egg in vinegar to set the color, is it a quick dip? Do you dip it right after taking it out of the color, or do you let it dry for a few minutes first? Will some of the color come off the egg when I dip it in vinegar? I have never heard of doing a vinegar dip before, so I apologize for the questions.

    1. Hi Diana,

      Yep, you can just do a quick dip with the paper towel still wrapped around the egg. The vinegar mixes with the eggshell and helps set the color. For this egg dyeing it also helps spread the color a bit though.

      Can’t wait to see how they turn out!!
