To get the natural dyes, boil a large handful of an herb or flower until the water is well colored. Place the water in a heat resistant glass cup or mug (or other non-metal container). Stir in 1 tsp of vinegar and a pinch of salt, and place your hard boiled egg into the mixture (gently, of course). It will take a bit longer for the color to take. Here are just a few options for making natural dyes.

Yellow-carrots, turmeric, fenugreek, white grape juice

Orange-Onion skins, paprika

Red-red onion skins, madder root, cayenne

Red-Violet-purple grape juice, red raspberried

Green-carrot tops, bracken

Blue-blueberries, red cabbage, black raspberries

Blue-violet-blackberries, beet juice, mulberries

Pink-heather

I think there are some you tube videos showing how to do that. I love it.
