a Hat pin / needle or similar pointy object make two holes, one in each
side of the egg. When doing this it is best to either hold the egg in
your hand or set it back in its carton to secure it. This limits the chance
of breakage. The bigger the holes the easier the egg is to blow but the
final decorated object will be less pretty. Some people make the holes
big enough to fit beads inside!
Once your holes are made try to break up the yolk by stabbing and swirling
your pointy object inside the egg.
Now your ready to blow. Holding the
egg gently and securely over a bowl, blow through the smaller hole. Try
to blow at a constant pressure. It will be hard and and will take a few
tries, you may have to rest for a bit.
Once you have removed the inside
of the egg you will need to wash it out. To do this fill a small bowl
with a 1/4 vinegar to 3/4 water solution. Dip the egg into the bowl and
let it half fill. Give the egg a good shake and once again blow out the
solution (Don't worry it will be a lot easier this time). Repeat the cleaning
process until all of the original egg is removed.
Allow the egg to dry out for a day
or put the egg shell in the oven to dry it before decorating.
Paint, dye or decorate the egg to your own
