Introduction

To make decorated eggs last beyond the season, blow them out first. For a quick tutorial, watch how to blow out an egg.

 

Blown eggs come from our friend Gail Lambka of NakedEggs. Read more about her egg-blowing business and shop her selection for Easter.

steps

  1. The large duck egg gets its ruffles from overlapping cut-up scalloped strips, secured along the bottom edges with Glue Dots.

  2. To create the melted-on look of the little eggs, adhere smaller doily pieces to the shell using découpage glue.
