There are certain things that will bring my memory right back to a specific time and place in my life, and confetti eggs rush all traces of Easter to the forefront of my mind. These little shells filled with colorful paper bits make any holiday a party. The kids not only have a field day making them, they have an even bigger thrill finding the right person to shower with confetti. Cascarones have been a part of my Easter since as far as I can ever remember and will continue to be a key player in all my Easter festivities.
What many people don’t realize CRAYON makes for a smear-free design, and allows your Easter eggs to look exactly like you imagined, and better. It doesn’t take much to bring these fun confetti filled eggs to life, just a little pre-planning and crafty hands that will end up a little dye stained. Isn’t that part of the fun?
What you’ll need for Confetti Eggs:
2 – dozen empty egg shells (once you remove the egg rinse and allow to dry)
tissue paper (cut into squares)
How to make dye: Place a tablespoon of vinegar in a small bowl, then add the color of your choice with a mixture of food coloring or a single color. next pour in a 1/2 cup of room temperature water. Repeat with the next color in another bowl. Set to the side.
Take a empty dry egg shell and draw the design of your choice with a crayon. Then dip into the color bath. Remove from color bath and set to the side to dry. Repeat with next egg.
Once eggs are dry, fill with confetti halfway, then take a square of tissue paper and with a glue stick go all around the edge…now place on top of egg hole to seal in confetti.
