FOR GOOD TIMES - How To Blow Eggs Tutorial

Friday, April 11, 2014


Yesterday, we shared our Easter Themed Invitation that included a real egg shell. Part of pulling off this invitation is knowing how to blow out eggs. So today, we are sharing the FOOR GOOD TIMES tutorial on how to do just that. And not only can you use the eggs for your Easter invitation, but for decorating the table too!

MATERIALS Raw Regular Sized Eggs | Pin | Small Nail | Toothpick | Small Straw | Wide Bowl | Glass of Water

DIRECTIONS 1- Poke a hole at the top and the bottom of a egg. To pierce these holes, use a pin. Also, by using a plaster it will help prevent breakage of the egg. Make the hole you are going to blow through a little larger using a nail. Then make the end hole slightly larger, about twice the size of the first hole, as this is where the egg contents will flow out. 2 - Reach through the larger hole with a toothpick to pierce the yolk and break up the membranes that keep it whole. Gently push the toothpick in and out of the hole repeatedly. 3 - Set up the bowl to catch the insides of the egg. Hold the egg right above this bowl and hold up the thin straw to the small hole. Blow air through the straw and into the egg, letting the insides flow out from the larger hole. Do this until the egg is empty. 4 - Take a glass of water and pour it over the eggshell to rinse it out. Then blow out the water and any remaining egg. Shake gently and repeat until the egg is completely clean. 5 - Dry the intact eggshells by putting all eggshells in the microwave on high for 15-30 seconds or bake them in 300ºF/150ºC oven for 10 minutes. Alternatively, you can let them drain (larger hole facing downwards) for 2-3 days.
