Using herbs and plants to create patterns when dying Easter eggs is an old tradition, one seen in England with Pace eggs and in the Ukraine with lystovka. In the past, some people lightly glued the leaves and petals to the egg with a paste of flour and water, while others bound the material to the egg tightly with cotton fabric.
In our updated version of this craft, we use pantyhose, herbs, and a drug store dye kit to create these plant-stencilled Easter eggs.
