DIY Confetti Eggs

Spring is my all-time favorite season.  The weather is getting warmer, the grass, trees and flowers are starting to green up and bloom. After weeks of cold dreary winter weather, the sunny warm days and bright blue skies cheer me up and make me want to grab the kids and head outdoors.

Every year for Easter, we always pick up a carton of Cascarones (confetti eggs) for the kids.  The confetti eggs do make a mess, but everyone loves to smash the confetti-filled eggs on Dad’s head and spread the confetti “love,” because we all know there’s nothing more fun than cracking an egg over someone’s head and showering them with confetti.

Confetti Eggs, also known as cascarones are hollowed-out eggshells, traditionally filled with confetti or small toys.  (Although since we tend to smash them on each other’s heads, I recommend  filling them with confetti only!)

Of course, if you don’t want to smash the confetti egg on someone’s head, you can just poke a hole in the tissue and just pour the confetti over their head – I guess the method is totally up to you, lol…

Instead of buying the premade confetti eggs this year, we decided to make our own.

How to make Confetti Eggs

Making your own confetti eggs truly is a super easy (and fun for the kids) craft to do.  

Make sure to buy an extra dozen eggs and when you’re getting ready to dye your Easter eggs, empty them out and dye them along with your boiled eggs.  Then stuff them full of confetti!  (What to do with all the leftover eggs?  Make this awesome biscuit and gravy egg casserole for Easter morning.  You’ll thank me, I promise!)

Instructions to make Confetti Eggs:

To make the eggs, all you need is 

1. Gently use the end of a spoon to tap out a small hole at the small end of the egg.

 2. Gently shake out the contents of the egg. (You may need to break the yolk.)

3.  If using an egg dying kit, follow the instructions on how to dye eggs.  If using food coloring, mix a 1 to 1 mixture of vinegar/water and 10 to 20 drops of food coloring in a cup.

4.  Place hollowed out egg into cup.  The longer you leave the eggs in the water/vinegar- the darker the color will be.  (I left mine in for quite a while.)

5. Allow the eggs to dry.  (I used both food coloring and an egg dying kit.  The kit came with extra shimmery paint, which really made the eggs pop.)

6. Carefully stuff eggs with confetti.

7. Add a bit of glue around the edge of the egg.  Use a brush or your finger to spread glue around.

8. Cover the opening of the egg with the tissue square.  Gently tap the edges of the tissue into the glue to ensure all edges have adhered.
