There's no solid evidence as to how eggs got connected to this real fun-filled event – the Easter. But often claims are made that Easter Eggs were originally symbols of a pagan goddess. Let's not go in for any debate as to how eggs got into Easter. One thing I really love about the Easter Eggs is that it gives the event a real nice colorful look.

Here's how to decorate the easter eggs in a natural way. Let's set the all the synthetic dyes aside. Why not color the easter eggs with all the natural pigments? Yes, you can come up with a wide assortment of colors from natural things that are found almost in any grocery store. You can color your easter eggs with these natural dyes and can give a very different look to your Easter eggs.

Here are the ingredients you need:

  • Fresh beats and frozen raspberries give pale red color.
  • Spinach leaves gives pale green color.
  • Red cabbage leaves gives blues color when dried
  • Orange, carrot tops and ground cumin give pale yellow color.
