Introduction: 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

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

    Great first Instructable and your painted egg turned out beautiful!
