DIY :: Easter Egg Poppers

April 4th, 2012

easter egg eggs piñata popper confetti cascarones

With Easter just five days away, I (Chanel) am so excited to share today’s festive egg DIY just in time for last-minute holiday crafting. Combining the functions of a place card, festive tabletop decor and a fabulously fun activity for the kids, this little project will go a long way at the Easter table. And you can take our word for it, ’cause we gave these confetti filled poppers a trial run with Ashley‘s adorable kiddos and they were received with rave reviews. Keep reading for the steps to create your very own, and be sure to stop by later this week for one last Easter craft that we’ve got on the agenda!

  1. Use a knife to create a hole at the bottom of the egg, approximately 3/4-inches wide. Drain egg into sink and rinse.
  2. While egg is drying, cut pastel tissue paper into 1/2-inch wide strips, and use fringe scissors to cut fringe into strips.
  3. Starting at the very bottom, draw a narrow ring of craft glue around the egg and carefully place piece of tissue fringe along the glue. Cut off excess fringe and repeat going up the egg, spacing fringe strips 1/8-inch apart.
  4. Fill egg with lots of confetti.
  5. Cut a 1-inch circle out of card stock paper and puncture a small hole in the center. String twine or yarn through hole and knot on one side and tape to secure, with 5-inches hanging from the other side.
  6. Cut a small rectangle out of card stock and hand write or stamp name onto tag, then string onto twine, knot, and cut excess string.
  7. Insert card stock circle into egg opening with string hanging out. Use as a place card and let guests pop open by pulling string to release confetti!
