Introduction: Blowing Out an Egg

Picture of Blowing Out an Egg

Blowing out an egg is easy and a great way to avoid wasting cooked dyed eggs that are (more often than not) left uneaten.

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies

Here are some supplies:

  • Pin
  • Paper clip
  • Napkin to wipe the egg
  • A bowl (to save the blown out yolk and egg whites)
  • Something sharp (I used a seam ripper but an Xacto knife or the pin mentioned above works too)
  • Finally, an egg!

Step 2: Poke Holes

Firmly grasp the egg with one hand and with the other, poke a small hole on the smaller end of the egg using a twisting motion to slowly make an opening.

Make a larger hole on the larger end.

Step 3: Preparing the Egg White and Yolk

Unfold the paper clip and use to break apart the inside of the egg (making it easier to blow out).

Step 4: Blow!

Wipe the egg ensuring that the egg is clean of the egg whites/yolk and blow into the smaller hole you made at the top into a bowl.

Keep blowing until all the insides have come out.

Step 5: Wash

Wash the egg, swish water inside the egg and blow the water out.

Allow the egg to dry before decorating.

Step 6: Finished

Done! You can now dye or decorate your hollowed out egg however you want!

I've made this before I put wax designs on with kitskas and then dyed it another color and then put more wax, and so there were different color designs
