DIY Monster Confetti EggsNo, I’m not confused what holiday it is and these are not Easter eggs! They’re cascarones or, confetti eggs! They exist to be smashed on an person for an explosion of confetti. Yes, it’s true! I thought that would be a pretty good Halloween trick, so I monster-fied them and have the easy-peasy tutorial here for you today!

Supplies:

White Eggs (Large, Extra Large or Jumbo work!)
Bowl
Craft Paint
Paint Marker
Glue Stick
Confetti
Trimmings + Hot Glue Gun (Optional, if you want to add things like yarn hair, as I did!)

First you’ll need to empty and clean your eggs. To do this, lightly tap the bottom of your egg on a hard surface.

Use your fingers to break away about a half inch wide hole at the bottom of the egg.

Let the egg drain out of the shell into a bowl. (And save the eggs for breakfast!)

Rinse your eggs thoroughly (I just used soapy warm water) and let dry completely.

Once dry, paint the outside of your shell the color you want your monster to be. Let dry.

Use white paint to paint eyes on the monster. Some can have one, two, three or even more eyes!

Use your marker to outline the eyes and draw in details once your paint is dry. Eyebrows, eyelashes, a mouth… whatever you want!

If you want to add hair or other fun things, do that at this point. I tied a few short strands of yarn together to make a little “wig” for some of mine and just hot glued it to the top of the egg.

Once they’re all decorated, you can fill them with your confetti. Hooray!

After filling, cut a small square of tissue paper (just big enough to cover the hole) and run a glue stick along the edges of it. Then glue it over the opening and let dry.

And they are ready for all your TRICK-or-treating adventures! If you plan to use these outside, I recommend finding biodegradable confetti. Otherwise, break them out for your Halloween house parties and costume extravaganzas. You can even fill one egg with a different color confetti and whoever smashes that one, gets a prize. The options are endless!
