9. Dying Easter Eggs
Next up we have another very useful albeit weird purpose that coffee can be used for and that is to dye Easter eggs. All you have to do is take a strong brew of coffee and let if cool a little. Then take a paint brush and paint you Easter eggs to your desired color saturation. You can also adopt another method whereby you simply let the eggs soak for as long as you can in a strong brew of coffee albeit after it has cooled down. You can vary the levels of color saturation to get yourself a gorgeous mix of coffee colors on different eggs. Ain’t this a totally cool idea?

Let it stay for a few hours and then rinse with water. You will be left with shiny hair that have a dark tint because of coffee’s natural dye.
