 Egg Blowing Instructions and Egg Decorating Ideas 1 

You just collected your first egg and it’s spectacular. You're not really going to bash its shell on the counter, are you? ~gasp!~  Eggs can be preserved by blowing out the contents and cleaning them for years of enjoyment.

Looking for a fun craft project that makes a great gift? Decorate them for the holidays!

Egg blowing isn’t difficult, it just takes a little patience and practice. I don't recommend practicing on a special or favorite egg as beginning attempts tend to result in breakage. The three basic steps to blowing an egg are: 1. Put hole(s) in egg, 2, Empty contents 3. Clean inside of egg. Using room temperature eggs makes emptying the egg much easier than with a cold egg.

This is great information! Made some blown eggs myself and I am looking for a great craft project to use them on. This burlap decoration is a beautiful idea! I would love to win it, not only for decorating my home but to get a better idea of how to do it for my friends and family!

The Burlap and Blown Eggs centerpiece is one of the prettiest I have seen! I absolutely love it. It would go so perfectly in my newly remodeled/redecorated living room!

My pleasure Nikki! I'd love to see how yours come out! Start collecting and blowing eggs out now because molting in the fall tends to interfere with production and then the holiday madness begins soon thereafter! :)

I can't wait to order my Blas-fix kit. I have been dying to try this and I have so many ideas floating around my head for Christmas decorating! Thanks for all the great tips and ideas!

I finally read my Blas-fix directions & figured out the one hole method. I love all of your egg decorating ideas. I also think decoupaging dried pressed flowers such as pansies on them would be beautiful for Easter. I'm storing up some pretty eggs I've blown out this summer for crafting with this fall & winter. Great blog!!! Thanks!!!
