A Dozen Beautiful Easter Eggs Tutorials

Easter Egg Tutorials

Blogland is full of stunning Easter Egg projects and understandably so.  They are a Easter tradition, they are gorgeous, they are fun to create and they are inexpensive.  This post compiles my favorite Easter Egg decorating tutorials.

This is the first time I have created a themed blog post round up to share on Of Faeries & Fauna.  Originally I was gathering posts about very feminine Easter eggs; I changed topics when I realized how many of the examples did not include how to information.  This post is a round up of modern Easter egg designs; the posts all include tutorials and directions so you can make your own.

In addition I have written instructions on how to hollow an egg, cut the cap off an egg and hard boil an egg.  You will find these tutorials at the end of the post.

Easter Eggs to Eat

Some Easter eggs are just too dyed or glued  or painted to be eaten.  There are pretty Easter eggs made out of styro foam,  wood, or even cement.

All of these eggs are made with boiled eggs in either natural dyes (love that) or just plain  boiled (easy peasy).

Martha Stewart – Dyeing Eggs Naturally

Martha provides full recipes and directions for a wide variety of colours to add to a boiled egg.  Granted its more expensive than a dye kit, but you know whats in it.

General Egg How To Tutorials

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.

ahow to color eggs, pretty easter eggs, how to dye Easter eggs, beautiful Easter eggs, natural egg dyes, natural egg decorating,

You will need:

Eggs, towel, bowl, tape, small headed pin, large sharp darning needle and a juice box straw.

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

Firmly grasp the egg.  Poke the egg with the small needle 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.  I promise it works.

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 to enlarge the hole a little bit 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.

To Remove the Cap of an Egg

You will need Caution, an egg and a sharp box cutter.  Be cautious and careful and don’t get cut.

Make sure the box cutter blade is sharp.  Apply a steady pressure towards the narrow end of the egg.  Spin the egg slowly as you scratch a single line, it may take two rounds.  The egg will start to crack along the weak scratch point.  Continue cutting along the line until the cap of the egg is lose and comes off.

Empty the egg contents out into a bowl, you can still eat them.  Rinse the shell out thoroughly with water and let dry.

To Hard Boil  Eggs

Place eggs in a pot, cover with water so that the water is 1 inch above the eggs.  Place on high heat, once they boil turn to very low heat and let them quietly cooks for about 12 minutes.

To test if they are hard boiled take an egg out of the water and spin on the counter.  If it spins well that means the yolk is hard.  If the egg wobbles it means the yoke is still runny causing the wobble.

Happy Easter

    1. Thank you Marie. I spent way more time then I planned on putting this together. I wanted all tutorials instead of just pictures. Glad you like them, I sure did.

    1. Thank you Deb: I had gathered this collaboration a little while ago, but wanted to have some of my own in it (seemed cheating not to) and now its so close to Easter. I hope I left people enough time to make some before the Holiday. Thank you for commenting. Leanna

    1. Hi Holly. Did you follow the same method for blowing out the eggs as I use? I will have to try the red cabbage next year and the beet was blotchy. Thanks for the feedback.

  1. So many beautiful ideas! I want to try the napkin ones this week over spring break. We have always hardboiled the eggs before use, but my husband can only eat so many (I’m not a fan). If you blow them out and bake them, are they ok for some time or will they start to smell?

    1. If you blow them out and rinse them well they should be fine. Many people store them and reuse them. I had not thought of plastic eggs but you may be able to find some that would work well for the covered eggs.

    1. Thank you Caroline. There are many pretty eggs but fewer with tutorials. I enjoyed reading the different methods and ideas.

    1. Thank you Ariel. Even I am shocked at how many pretty eggs I found before I was able to decide on a final selection. Enjoy your Easter.

  2. What a wonderful collection of tutorials! I want to try some out and why wait for Easter? I think these would be great…like some of the vintage prints or the vinyl cut outs for an ordinary breakfast with family or friends. Thank you for sharing at TADA! Thursdays
