The easy way to blow out Easter eggs for decorating!

So, I picked up this handy little tool at a Ukrainian Egg decorating store about 5 years ago and we use it every year to blow out the eggs we decorate and hang on our egg-tree. This year our egg-tree is so full that we had to make egg holders for the leftover eggs. For anyone who has drilled holes in eggs and tried to blow out the contents with your mouth...and then experienced TMJ and ear pain (ouch!), this is the tool you have to pick up!

Here's how it works...

  • Use the "drilling" tool to drill a hole in the egg (I didn't take a picture of that part but its on the package photo). Only drill one hole
  • Use the "pumping" tool to pierce and blow out the egg contents through that hole. It basically creates a high pressure inside of the egg that forces the contents out through the hole and the shell remains intact for you to decorate
  • Decorate the eggs and keep them to hang on your egg-tree every year
