Making Confetti Eggs
First Remove the inside of the egg by tapping a butter knife on the small end of the egg and then peel off about a nickel sized hole in the egg and dump everything out. Next, clean the egg well with hot soapy water and dry and let dry overnight in an empty egg carton.
To decorate. I used a mixture of metallic paints- acrylic and spray paint. I sprayed all the eggs at once. After the paint dried, I added details like flowers and other designs with glitter paint pens and " Stickles".
Once the paint was dry, I added about a 2 teaspoons of confetti to the inside of the egg and then sealed the egg shut by gluing a 2 inch square of tissue paper to the egg.
These were so fun to make and turned out almost too beautiful to break. The boys are very anxious to smash them.
This has become a tradition for our family.
