Feminine Eggs

As we get older lifestyles change, no longer do we have a house full of children wanting to dye eggs they refuse to eat.  Little fingers aren’t creating beautiful eggs with rough hands any longer,  I really miss those days.  As the children grow older Easter Egg decorating becomes more elaborate, allowing us to create blown out eggs and simple serve omelettes for dinner.

These eggs are designed for a little girl old enough to play with hollowed eggs and use a glue gun.  These eggs would look so pretty on a girls dresser.  Let’s start with the preparing the eggs.

How to Blow out an Egg

I promise this is easy to do, all you need is a little bit of patience.  The worst case scenario you may break one egg out of a dozen and your going to have enough eggs for an omelette supper either way.

You will need:

eggs

towel

bowl

tape

small headed pin

large sharp darning needle

juice box straw

Start with washing your raw egg.  Place on clean towel,  along with needles,  straw and bowl.

Firmly grasp the egg.  Poke the egg in the pointed end first, apply steady pressure and twist.  You will feel the needle slowly grip and then drill through the egg shell.  This may take up to a minute or so, this requires patience.

Once the small pin breaks the surface, apply tape over the hole.  This will help prevent cracking.

Insert the large darning needle.  Twirl it around gently and plunge in and out of the egg to break the yoke and sort of scramble the insides.

Using the small pin roughen up the edges enlarging the hole.

Repeat this on the other end.

Now that you have two holes. Cut the juice box straw and use just the little straight part.

Place your egg over the bowl, put the straw over the hole and huff and puff and blow the egg out.

Once this is done, run the egg under the tap to rinse out whatever little may be left inside.

You can then drain your eggs for two days, or do like I did and bake them at 300 F for ten minutes.  Let cool and decorate.

Colour the Eggs

Originally I dyed these eggs using beets but the colour was not what I wanted, so I finished them with chalk paint instead.  The chalk paint supports the shell  if I was to do them again I would just paint them.

Embellish the Eggs

Gather your supply of embellishments, buttons, ribbon, stickers, tiny flowers, feathers, mesh, scrap booking supplies, small beads or glitter.

Storing the Feminine Easter Eggs

Keeping eggs from one year to the next is something I have no experience with.  Now that the children are all grown I made these eggs.  I miss the earlier days.    These particular eggs are going to be stored for next year.  Not sure how long they will last, hopefully they will keep for a couple of years.

The Aunt Peaches blog shares a complete tutorial on how she prepares her Easter eggs so that they keep for years.  Here is the link to her Easter Egg tutorial.

Happy Easter

    1. Pink, pearls, lace and Victorian accents scream feminine to me. I am lucky enough to own the perfect pink depression glass bowl. I had fun doing these. Thank you for commenting.

  1. They’re beautiful, Leanna and in your signature soft pink! I’ve had blown out eggs made with my kids for over two decades. While some broke because of my clumsiness, they’ve survived by storing them in an egg carton, just how you buy them in the store.

    1. Can you believe I had not thought of storing them in egg carton. What an obvious solution. Thank you for the info Marie. I will certainly store them that way.

    1. Hi Kate. It isn’t until you actually blow out an egg that it seems easy. I think it’s because we think the shell is weaker than it truly is. I appreciate your positive feedback k. Thanks a bunch

  2. So pretty! It amazes me (being craft challenged) how simple these things are to do. I love the way you break it down!

  3. These eggs are so delicate and feminine. Very pretty! Regarding the storage question: I’ve used craft eggs (plain, white) that I bought at Walmart for $1.89 per dozen. (these are not the plastic eggs that come apart in two pieces) They store just fine from one year to the next.
