When I was a kid, I used to love dyeing Easter eggs. My sisters and I could tear through a box of PAAS colored tablets like nobody's business.

However, my grandmother had a more inventive and original way to dye eggs.  She used to dye eggs with things she already had in her kitchen. I distinctly remember her using onion skins to dye eggs. Now, that may sound a little odd to you, but my grandma wasn't alone. As it turns out, there are a variety of video tutorials on YouTube about how to do that very same thing.

I'll be honest. I don't remember my grandmother using anything other than onions to dye her eggs, but apparently you can use a wide variety of foods and spices you may have readily available in the kitchen. In the video above, beets and onions were used.

You can also use red cabbage! YouTube user A Wooden Nest has mastered the art of dyeing arts with cabbage. They're beautiful!

Everyday Food shared a video which highlights the same types of natural dyes, but they added one to the mix. Did you know that you can dye eggs with coffee? Here's how!

Southern Living shared a fun video that shows how to use blueberries to dye your Easter eggs. These are gorgeous!

HGTV went a few steps further. They decided to round up all the natural Easter egg dyes and put them to the test to see which ones work best and which ones don't quite make the grade. Take a look.

Have you ever tried to dye Easter eggs with natural ingredients?
