Instead of opting for the classic egg dyeing technique this Easter,turn a new leaf with this reverse stencling method
Smalll flat leaves- fern,cilantro,dill thyme and mint
Hard boiled eggs
Lay a leaf on an egg, then cover it with a section of the nylon stocking to hold it in place.
Pull together both open ends of the stocking then twist the ends together and secure them with a rubber band.
For each dye bath,mix 1/2 cup warm water,1 teaspoon vinegar,and 10 -20 drops of food coloring in a glass. Carefully submerge the nylon wrapped egg in the bath and let it soak for about 4 minutes
Use a spoon to remove the egg. Carefully remove the rubber band and leaf. Allow the egg to dry completely before further handling it
