How to Decorate Eggs With Rice

Rice up your egg game: Creative tips for egg-cellent decorating!


Hard-boiled Dakota Layers eggs, in shell

Food coloring

White vinegar

1 cup white rice

Sandwich bags

Place about 1/8 – 1/4 cup of rice in the bags.

Drop 10-15 drops of food coloring in bags of rice.

Add in a little vinegar but do not let the rice get too watery.

Shake the bag gently to make sure the colored rice is evenly distributed around the egg.

Place eggs on drying rack and let dry for 20-60 minutes.


It’s very important to not add too much vinegar to the rice mixture when using this technique. Excess vinegar will cause the rice to clump and stick to the eggshell.
