I really wanted to do something fun for my kids, for New Years Eve this year. They will NOT be staying up until midnight, but I want them to be part of the celebration, none the less. I saw tons of cute baked goods with clocks on them, that I knew my daughter would love! But, after all the sweet treats I've made over the last week, I knew making cupcakes probably wasn't the best idea, since I'll end up eating most of them! I always feel obligated to eat things I bake before they get stale...This is not good, since I'm currently trying to lose weight.
I saw these cute Confetti Eggs on Rad Megan. They couldn't be easier to make! I can't wait to break them open with my kids tomorrow night.
To make these eggs, you need....
Sharpies or other markers
Wrapping paper scraps
Step 1 : Gently tap on the top of each egg with a butter knife. Chip away at the shells, until you have a hole roughly the size of a quarter. Pour the eggs into a bowl, and save for a later use.
Step 2 : Rinse the inside of each egg thoroughly under running water. Drain eggs, and set to dry inside egg carton. Place in a warm spot to dry ( or if you're impatient like me, use a hairdryer!)
Step 3 : While eggs are drying, make confetti. Cut wrapping paper scraps into narrow strips. Then, cut strips into tiny squares. There are not exact measurements for this, and they DON'T have to be perfect! Also, if you have foil shreds available (can be purchased at dollar store) snip those into tiny pieces, as well.
Step 4 : After eggs are COMPLETELY dry (can't stress this enough) carefully stuff eggs with confetti.
Step 5 : Cut circles out of tissue paper, big enough to completely cover the hole of each egg. Gently apply glue around the opening of each egg, and cover with tissue paper circle.
Step 6 : Decorate with markers!
