Easter is a holiday that DIY enthusiasts love, because there is no shortage of pastel-toned arts and crafts that can be made in celebration; however, all of these projects can get a bit overwhelming, which is why food blog The Kitchn put together a simple tutorial on how to dye Easter eggs with onions.

The all-natural method requires the skin of 12 onions, mostly red (but a few yellow skins are fine), along with vinegar, olive oil and 12 hard-boiled eggs. Boil, then simmer, the onion skins in a stainless steel saucepan, before straining and soaking the eggs. The yellow skins will dye a light tan color, while the red ones will create a richer brown tone.

For added effect, add parsley leaves into the mix (tied them into stockings) -- the eggs will absorb the impression of the herbs, leaving a cool design.
