I love Easter! Particularly the dying of the eggs tradition. Every year I promise myself that I will learn a whole new egg-dying technique (and I never do). This year, I'm just aiming for eggs that don't look like my toddler dyed them all while running around the kitchen screeching.

Lay a leaf on an egg, then cover it with a section of 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 to 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 from the dye bath and set it on a covered work surface. Carefully remove the rubber band, nylon, and leaf. Allow the egg to dry completely before further handling it.
