I'm writing this from Orlando - our room is right near the pool so the patio door is open and the breeze is amazing. So, no surprise, this will be a short post. :) We survived the forever-long car ride, and now I'm ready to sit by the pool with a pina colada. But first I had to show you guys these colorful confetti eggs!
I don't know what came over me this year, but I have been an egg making machine. After these nail polish eggs last week, the kids and I experimented with paper mache eggs made with confetti. Have you ever tried paper mache? It was fun!
What you'll need:
- Small balloons
- Mod Podge
- Foam brush
Blow up the balloon and tie it off. Then start coating it with Mod Podge and confetti, starting at the bottom. Work your way up the balloon in layers, making sure you coat the confetti in Mod Podge as you go.
After you have the balloons covered, set them aside and let dry completely. Then pop the balloon at the top. If all goes right, the balloon will deflate and the confetti will stay intact. I had trouble getting the balloon out of a couple of my eggs though. If that happens, reach in and pull the balloon out. If it's stuck to the confetti it will deflate the whole egg.
Then fill the egg with whatever you like - candy or more confetti even - and seal the egg at the top by Mod Podging on more confetti.
I love how colorful these turned out, they remind me of these garden lanterns we made. The kids had fun making them for about 5 minutes - which is pretty much how long their attention spans last for any of mommy's "projects." But I can't wait for them to break them open. :) What kind of eggs have you made this year?
