Now that truly is a mouthful. Have you ever tried to mouth blow an egg? (keep it clean people). It's not easy. Well, maybe it is for some people but I felt like my brains were going to explode. Maybe my lung capacity isn't that great. Come to think of it, I can't really do balloons either. Hmmm.
Anyway, after much effort I ended up with nearly a dozen hollowed out eggs. I put them in a bowl with a tea bag and some water and they came out great. Just a nice antiquey brown after a couple of hours. I had to roll them over every once in awhile for the first batch. The second batch I got smarter and laid a salad plate upside-down to hold the eggs under the water. Worked great.
I let them dry and then added some ribbon and dried hydrangea petals from our garden plants from last year.
I laid them (for now, it might change) on top of some spanish moss that I put into the top of this vase. This vase started out looking like the cat puked on it (take a look and tell me I'm wrong).
A quick coat of ivory spray paint (preceded by several not as quick coats of white primer) had it looking like new (again with the dungeonesque lighting in our upstairs bathroom, sorry for the lack of picture quality).
I'm linking up here. Check them out:
