When we decorate eggs for Easter, we usually use hard boiled eggs. Hard boiled eggs are not only delicious when you go to eat them, but they are easy to decorate and dye. Unlike fresh eggs, for instance, hard boiled eggs will sink when you dip them into liquid egg dyes, allowing for a deep and even color treatment. My favorite way to prepare Easter eggs is not by hard boiling them, but by hollowing them out. Hollow eggs last just about forever – unless you accidentally break them – because they never go bad and can be used in egg hunts or as decorative ornaments for Easter celebrations. Their longevity means that you can save your favorite eggs for future celebrations, which is a nice bonus if you spend as much time decorating eggs as I do.
Learn how to hollow out your eggs over on my How To Make Blown Easter Egg Ornaments post on the Craftsy blog (it’s free!), and you’ll soon be making Easter eggs in a whole new way. Be sure to save your leftover eggs for baking or making egg-centric brunch dishes, too!
