Create your own hollowed-out eggshells for creative Easter-themed arrangements that are sure to last throughout the season. We tried a few different methods before settling on this technique as the best for removing yolks and whites from eggs.
Paper clip, straightened
- Using a straight pin, carefully pierce the small end of an egg. (Tip: If it is difficult to pierce the end, use sandpaper to thin it down.) Wiggle the pin in a circular motion to widen the hole. Repeat this process for the large end of egg. Insert paper clip into second hole, and move around to break the yolk.
- Hold egg over a bowl. Over hole in small end, use a straw to blow out contents. Repeat process until egg is empty.
- Rinse egg under running water. Return egg to carton; let drain for at least 3 hours. Repeat process with remaining eggs.
