Easter Egg Fortunes Using Natural Eggs


By now you know that the matriarchs of my family were obsessed with the egg as a form of holiday art. Apparently I carry the gene.

After dyeing eggs with rubber bands, and making colorful string egg place settings, I thought I'd carry on with the egg theme this week with my own version of a blown egg that's less ornate than my predecessors and much more fun.

A delightful surprise for unsuspeggting holiday guests.

To create a blown egg, gently pierce a hole in the top and bottom using a needle. Make one of the holes large enough so that you can easily insert the fortunes. Once your holes are created, scramble the interior of the egg thoroughly then blow out the contents. Fill the interior with water and blow again to rinse. Dry eggs well with a paper towel.

Next, dye the eggs taking care to gently submerge the egg until its interior is filled. Once you're happy with the shade, drain the eggs and allow them to dry by placing them in an upright position for 24 hours or more. When cracked, each egg will reveal a beautiful colored interior.

For your egg pun pleasure, I've also created a dozen fortunes to add. Click the image below for the list.
