Fruit and Veggie Confetti Eggs

by Ryan

Celebrate Easter Sunday

For an Easter Sunday celebration in Mexico, they make Cascarón’s – Confetti eggs, hollowed-out chicken eggs filled with confetti or small toys. The custom was brought to Mexico in the mid-1800s by Emperor Maximilian’s wife. Decorated, confetti-filled cascarones may be thrown or crushed over the recipient’s head to shower him or her with confetti.

They are pretty easy to make. First, use a pin at the bottom of the egg to create a small hole, on the other end of the egg, make a larger hole. Blow in the small hole and the contents will shoot out the big hole. Rinse the egg and let dry over night.

Then fill the egg with confetti. You can buy confetti or just cut your own.

Then using regular Elmer’s glue, start gluing small pieces of tissue paper to the outside of the egg.

We made two different kinds. The first was regular multi-color eggs. When it was dry, we used the tools in the Tinselbox to add a bit of gold to the design.

The other design was a bit out of the box. I thought maybe I fruit and veggie inspired eggs. I could have went really crazy, but I thought carrots and strawberries were the best with the colors of tissue paper I had. Pineapples would have been so cute too.

Once they were dry – I went in with gold and black markers to add more detail. I love these so much I don’t want to crush them at all.

These are so super cute! I love the little touches of foil and although I’m glutton for punishment, confetti always makes me happy. Perfect non-candy Easter basket surprise for the kids. Thanks!
