Blowing Eggs

These beautiful ornaments look fantastic on the Easter Tree and will keep for years and years – just like your old Christmas tree baubles.

Wash the eggs in cold water. With a large needle, pierce the top and bottom, making the hole wider at the base of the egg. Break the yolk with the needle. Insert a small piece of rolled-up paper or straw into the top hole, and blow all the yolk and white into a bowl (use the eggs for baking). Rinse the egg shell under the tap, blowing the water out if necessary. Soak for ten minutes in a bowl of soapy water with a dash of vinegar, then leave to dry before painting.

To hang blown eggs, tie one end of thread or ribbon to a small length of matchstick. Push through the top hole and pull gently back.
