Eco printing on eggs

A quick Friday afternoon project, following the instructions in India Flint’s book Eco Colour. She says it’s a Latvian tradition, but my friend Magdalen says they do it in Ireland as well.

I pressed some small leaves against the shell, then wrapped the egg in onion skins and put it in an old popsock. Put the eggs in a pan with water and more onion skins, and boil for 10 minutes. Let it cool, then unwrap the eggs – voilà!
