Tie-Dye Easter Eggs

As much as I love vinegar, I hate the combined smell of vinegar and hard boiled eggs. Growing up we used vinegar to color our Easter eggs... I'm still slightly traumatized. Here's a fast, easy and non-smelly way to dress up your eggs.
What you need:
  • hard boiled eggs
  • coffee filters
  • food coloring
  • aluminum foil
What you do:
Place the coffee filter on top of the aluminum foil. Put a few drops of food coloring in random spots on the coffee filter. Get creative!

Place a damp egg in the center of the filter.

Wrap the layers of filter and foil around the egg. Gently squeeze the foil around the egg.

Unwrap the egg.
 Happy Easter!
Keep Refrigerated (or they will stink like gross)
