How to dye eggs with onion skins, flowers and herbs.
Cut the nylon stocking into 5 inch squares.
Stick a couple of leaves or flowers on each egg with a drop of water, then wrap it gently in the nylon stocking and tie it at each end.
Add the the onion skins (+ beets if using) and the vinegar to a big pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 10 minutes.
Allow to cool completely.
At this point you can remove the eggs from the hot water or you may refrigerate them in the liquid overnight for a deeper color.
For the marbled eggs design, wrap each egg in a few yellow onion skins, then wrap tightly in a nylon stalking. Boil in yellow onion dye following the above instructions, only just using yellow onion skins.
