Happy Easter, friends! We took a two-month vacay from In Fine Feather to find + bring you the best Georgia-grown content. Today on IFF, we are featuring these adorable naturally-dyed eggs from Atlanta's own Ashley Pepitone of Camp Makery, as featured on the Pottery Barn Blog! Florals by the lovely Juli Vaughn. See Ashley's methods below:
"This blue and white scheme calls out to PB's beautiful Indigo Collection. I simply used a set of Sharpies to hand-draw patterns onto each egg. Sharpies work so well because they come in a variety of colors and you can set the eggs down for a few minutes and they'll be dry when you return!"
"I used several natural dyes to color these beautiful eggs, just like my grandmother taught me. The tan eggs were dyed by boiling them with several black tea bags, and the terracotta-hued eggs received their color by boiling with the skins of 5 yellow onions. You can let the eggs soak as long as you want to get a darker color. Each egg has its own pattern or monogram — I used stickers on the eggs and put them in a nylon stocking tied at the top to hold the stickers in place during the dying process. Stickers are an easy way to make sure your eggs look flawless!"
