    1. Wash eggs well. Place in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil and boil for 9 minutes timed from the start of boiling. Remove from heat, drain well and cool.
    2. Place a leaf over the centre of an egg. Wrap well in a piece of the tights, tying with a knot to secure well. Repeat with remaining eggs
    3. Combine 250ml hot water with vinegar in a metallic pan or glass bowl. Add powdered dye and stir to dissolve. Add eggs and leave for 3 to 5 minutes, depending on desired shade.
