As you might have figured out I LOVE decorating. A lot of people only pimp up their homes for the holidays for the “children’s sake” – I do it for myself! And during easter I do it for my state of mind as well, that yellow color sure shakes up that winter blues.
This year i decided to keep it super simple and minimalistic with a splash of neon. I bought yellow feathers, neon pink string and blew few eggs and embellished them with plain patterns made with tape and permanent marker. Easy-peasy and very festive!
This was actually my very first time blowing out eggs – Can you believe it? This will be my 31st easter and I have never made an easter egg before. About time I’ll say!
I cut out MT tape in triangles and squares, and I also experimented by cutting the tape in half and made a simple pattern with long strips.
Fun Fact: One of the perks of blowing out your own eggs is that an omelette is a guaranteed breakfast the following day. Such a lovely bonus!
How to blow out eggs
1. If your eggs are stamped, remove the stamps with vinegar
2. Place a regular sized egg at room temperature in an egg holder
3. You can use basically anything sharp and pointy to make the holes. I used a trussing needle, but you can use some wire, straightened paper clip, toothpick or a push-pin
4. Make two holes in your egg. One at the bottom and one at the top
5. Make the bottom hole a little larger so the egg can easily come out
6. Use a small straw or blow directly into the smaller hole, while holding the egg (large bottom hole facing down) over a clean bowl
7. The egg will come out, and you can make an omelette with it later
8. When the egg is empty, clean the shell inside and outside with some water. Fill the shell up with water and blow it out, repeat few times
9. Dry the eggs on a towel for minimum 24 hours. Or you can bake them in the oven for 10 min at 150°C
10. Now your eggs are ready for decorating
