If you'd like to try "blowing" eggs, here's how. Rinse the egg, then poke small holes in both ends of it. An unbent paper clip works best for me. Sometimes the yolk can be shaken out of the shell, but usually, I have to gently blow on one end of the egg. Once the yolk is out, rinse well and let dry completely. You can see the ones in the photo have been dyed, but that isn't necessary for this project.
Fun chicken fact: The first few eggs hens lay are usually smaller than average. The older the hen is, the larger her eggs are. Of course color and overall size of the eggs depends on the breed of the hen.
Besides napkins and eggs, scissors, a paintbrush and some type of liquid glue is needed. Today, Modpodge is my glue of choice, but white children's glue works fine, too. A safe spot for the eggs to dry is also nice, but not necessary. There happened to be a couple of fruit cup containers in my dishwasher that were about to go in the recycling bin. These worked perfectly for holding eggs while the glue dried.
What a difference a few napkins can make! You can see I left the small ones just the way God painted them.
Would you like to see the "before" photo one more time?
How should I use them in my Spring decor? I'm too excited to decide!
Now let's see what my blogging friends cleared from their Craft Room Stash!
