This year, I’ve become somewhat of a hoarder. I spent hours cleaning out my craft and supplies closet this week and it’s still not even completely organized. I’ve just collected too much cool stuff over the last few months. Seriously, it’s sort of a problem right now because I’m running out of storage space.
I’ve been saving uniquely shaped glass bottles from Blis Gourmet and Bloom Ferments Kombucha. While cleaning out the craft closet, I came across a ton of PAAS Easter Egg Dying Kits from this spring. They are great little projects for my toddler even after the Easter holiday.
The reason I kept these extra kits though, was for the egg dye dipper. I saved a bunch for this summer when my herb garden was in full bloom. It’s time to start drying my herbs from the garden and these copper colored dippers will make the perfect “hanger” for my kitchen.
What you need:
- Easter egg dippers from PAAS Easter Egg Dye Kits
- Sprigs of fresh cut herbs
Step 1 – Wash and dry the PAAS Easter Egg Dipper tool.
Step 2 – Cut sprigs of fresh herbs from your garden or window containers.
Step 3 – Rinse thoroughly and pat the herbs dry carefully with paper towel.
Step 4 – Bunch all herbs together and tie together with twine.
Step 5 – Tie the twine at the bottom ring of the egg dye dipper.
Step 6 – Hang the egg dipper from the large top ring on a cabinet knob.
Be sure to place the herb hanger in a place that stays dry. Most herbs usually take just a few days to dry completely. Store in a dry cabinet in a small Ball Jar once the herbs are completely dry.

I have tons of these little copper dippers left over from last Easter so stay tuned for more creative ways to upcycle these handy little tools!
