DIY :: SUPER BOWL CASCARONES

superbowl super bowl football craft project party eggs confetti cascarones

The big game is just days away, and I can hardly contain my excitement for nearly four solid hours of incredible commercials football. Now, I may not be the biggest sports expert, but I do pride myself on being a master of party-throwing… so you can be sure that a Super Bowl soiree is no exception. Since nothing says ‘celebration‘ quite like confetti, we created these football-shaped cascarones (or confetti eggs) to add a festive element to your game-day, perfect for smashing when your team scores! Keep reading for instructions on how to make your own, and we’d love to hear what you all have planned for Sunday!

  1. Cut brown tissue paper into 2-inch squares, set aside.
  2. Using the handle of a knife, firmly tap the larger end of an egg to crack and carve a 3/4-inch circle out of the shell. Drain egg contents, rinse out and allow to dry. Once dry, fill with confetti (we made red, white and blue confetti using tissue paper and a hole punch since those colors represents both teams playing in the Super Bowl this year)
  3. In a small bowl, combine 1 part Mod Podge with 1 part water. Brush mixture around opening of the egg, and place one brown square over opening.Use brush to smooth out and adhere tissue paper square, and repeat with additional squares until the entire egg is covered.
  4. Once dry, use white puff paint to carefully pipe football stitching onto egg, as pictured above. Allow to dry overnight, and enjoy on game-day!

  1. So, so cute!!!! Unfortunately, the big game isn’t as big a deal in the UK, but I’m definitely planning on streaming–even if it’s just for the commercials!:)

    what a fun activity! i’d do this, but i’m actually missing the superbowl this year, and i don’t think that i can convince my boy to be so crafty.

    My husband just sprung on me TODAY that we’re hosting a super bowl party (and we’re all Patriots fans, so it’s going to be a rowdy group). I’m thinking this could add a seriously fun edge to the party. Although I’m a littler concerned about a room full of guys having so much fun with this that I could be cleaning up confetti for the next two weeks.

      Sounds like it’ll be quite a party! If you’re worried about a lingering confetti mess, you could fill the eggs with something else. I love the idea of stuffing them with raffle tickets to win a six-pack, or clever game-day fortunes :)

      Have fun & good luck!

  4. Cute! The beer certainly caught my eye since that’s where I’m from ;)
