Spring is almost officially here! I absolutely love this time of year because everything is blossoming and it's what I like to call my birthday season. April is a pretty good month to have a birthday, in my opinion!
It also brings us Easter which is my second favorite holiday. Some of my fondest childhood memories are eggs hunts with my family, finding my basket from the Easter Bunny hidden in the linen closet and getting a new dress to wear with my new Jellies (sandals) that I discovered in my basket.
Something I didn't grow up with was Confetti Eggs and I wish I had! It wasn't until I moved to Texas (the second time) with my husband that I discovered them. I saw a huge crate of them being sold at the grocery store and just passed by them. I thought, "What in the world would you want those for?" It wasn't until we bought some for a family party that I discovered they are the best (and messiest) thing EVER!
Now, I won't fool you into thinking this is a project that is going to be more inexpensive than buying the pre-made stuff. I can buy a dozen of these at the store for about $1.88. You can't even buy a dozen real eggs for that now days! However, I know these aren't available everywhere so I wanted to share how you can make them at home for a fairly inexpensive price.
Here is what you'll need...
Empty Egg Shells
Small Colorful Confetti
1 Piece of 8x11 Paper
Colorful Tissue Paper
Small Foam Brush
2. Fold your sheet of paper into a cone and tape to secure. Cut off a bit of the smaller end to make the opening for your "funnel". Make sure it's big enough for the confetti to fit through, but not too big it won't fit in the open end of your egg shell.
I really hope you make them! They've become a tradition in our family and create really wonderful memories!
