Making homemade Easter egg dye instead of using a store-bought kit? That’s what I usually do, too. Not that I think there’s anything super extra great about using food coloring to make homemade Easter egg dye versus the cups.

Food coloring works just as well – better, even, because you get to control the depth of the color.
And just in case you’ve been wondering how to make turquoise or lilac or freesia Easter egg dye, McCormick has you covered with a very cool Easter egg dyeing guide that tells you exactly how many drops of which colors you need to make the colors you want!
