How to Hollow Out Eggs

Here is how you hollow out the eggs before having a go at painting your own.

  1. Wash and dry eggs.
  2. Using a large needle, pierce both ends of the shell, making sure you insert the needle deep enough to break the egg yolk.
  3. Wiggle the needle around in a circular motion to open the hole at one end of the egg.
  4. Hold the egg over a bowl, blow into the large opening at one end of the egg to force the egg white and yolk out.
