Get Hopping With This Dye-Free Easter Egg Idea
We’ve launched into full Easter mode here at Brit HQ. Sure, St. Patrick’s Day is getting some DIY love, but we’ve definitely got eggs on the brain. We’ll be bringing you dozens (cartons?) of easy Easter egg ideas and DIYs this season, from egg basics 101 to punny Easter centerpieces and everything in between. So let’s add to the egg DIY pile with these cute-as-a-button confetti eggs, shall we?
– boiled or blown eggs (learn how to make perfect hard boiled and blown eggs here)
– colored tissue paper
– Mod Podge
– 1/4 cup water
– paint brush
1. Make confetti by folding your tissue paper multiple times, then cutting small squares or triangles.
2. Add a bit of Mod Podge to 1/4 cup water, and stir until the Mod Podge dissolves.
3. Place each confetti piece onto the egg one at a time, and paint over it with your Mod Podge solution. Repeat until you’ve covered the entire egg.
There are lots of perks to this DIY — do dye, no stinky vinegar, and it can be done in under 10 minutes. Win, win, win.
We love tissue paper for so many reasons, but this latest hack might be one of our favorites — you can make confetti of all shapes and sizes! We went with tiny squares this time, but pretty much any shape will fly. Just fold your tissue paper multiple times and cut into it, as shown above.
Hellooooo, you joyful tiny pieces of paper, you.
Mix a bit of Mod Podge with 1/4 cup water, then stir with a paint brush. FYI, a little bit of Mod Podge goes a long way!
