Egg Blowing

This is such a great way of making spring decorations.

So let’s get cracking! sorry.

First step, wash your eggs, we all know where they’ve been.

Step two, making some holes. You can use a large pin but my weapon of choice is a pair of very sharp nail scissors, it gives me something to keep hold of and I feel a bit more in control of egg-sactly how much presser I’m using.

Eggs can be surprisingly hard to puncture. You need a small hole at the top and a slightly larger one at the bottom. Egg-speriment with the size of your holes, start small and make them a little larger if you can’t blow out the egg.

Step three, blow through the small top hole and the contents will empty out through the bottom, make sure the have a bowl underneath to catch the eggy innards so that you can cook it later.

Finally, step four, gently wash out your empty eggs and leave to dry.

Now the eggsciting bit, deciding how to decorate them. I know I know, I just can’t help myself when it comes to egg yolks, I mean jokes.

I’ll be back with some of my finished and decorated eggs soon.

Can I just say a big thank you to my eggscellent assistant Ian, beautifully blown man, beautifully blown. Thanks.

Shelley.
