How to Make Confetti Eggs

Posted by Jennifer Essary on

Confetti eggs have become one of our favorite Easter family traditions! If you're not able to find some at your local grocery store or just have more of a DIY spirit (hello!), they are super easy to make.

Items you will need:

Eggs, emptied and dried*
small funnel, spoon, or fingers
Confetti - this is available at craft or party stores, or make your own from scrap paper
Tissue paper, cut into about 2" squares
Glue or mod podge
Egg container (not crucial, but makes things easier)
Craft paint (optional, but fun!)

*To prep your eggs, crack them horizontally, towards the top of the pointy end. Be careful to not crack too big of a hole, as that will make it harder to cover after filling with confetti. Empty the eggs out and cook a great breakfast, or refrigerate in an air-tight container for later use.
Rinse the inside of the now-empty eggs with water, then set them upside down on a towel to dry out.

When your eggs are dry, you can start filling! Use the funnel (or a spoon, or your fingers) to fill the eggs with confetti. Fill each egg about 1/3 to 1/2 full of confetti.

Glue one square of tissue paper over the opening of the egg. Let the glue dry.

If you want to paint, now's the time! Turn your egg container over to hold your eggs while you paint them. Go crazy!

When the paint is dry, you're ready to go!

Hide the eggs (outside! unless you really like vacuuming) or start a surprise confetti egg fight. Have so much fun!

If you do this, please share your photos - we would love to see them!
