Hollow Dyed Easter Eggs (Better the eggs than the chocolate bunny!)

Here's the problem I have with dyeing hard-boiled eggs: you decorate them beautifully and then they have to be shunned to the dark refrigerator to stay fresh.

Not so with these dyed eggs, which have their insides removed by a really quite simple technique, so they're perfectly safe to display.

Although it seems counter-intuitive, you can poke holes in either end of an egg without it shattering. Use a straight pin, thumb tack or anything thin and very sharp and insert in one end:

And then flip and do the other end. Jiggle the pin around a bit so you have a slightly larger hole in this end:

Then huff and puff through the tiny hole and the egg’s insides will come pouring out the other end. Collect the eggs in a bowl for a omelet, frittata or scrambled eggs.

Once the eggs are all hollow, rinse them lightly and then dye as usual.

Don’t have an Easter Egg dyeing kit handy? Simply use this homemade recipe for dyeing Easter Eggs.

I wanted more pastel-toned eggs, so I dyed these for just a short bit, using the egg carton for drying:

There you have it: an easy and perhaps new way to bring a little spring brightness into your home.


Life is sweet,

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
