For ages now I’ve been trying to make myself cut out a ton of circles from tissue paper to make up some eggs that I have been dying to do. BUT the reality of cutting up tons of dots with a circle punch from thin tissue paper was off-putting enough that this has been a project securely in my “ideas” bin rather than my “get it done” bin.
So when Rob needed to go to the craft store, and I didn’t (what!?), I found myself just perusing the shelves when I found a little tube of big, circle confetti. Now I couldn’t for the LIFE of me remember why I wanted the circles but for a $1.50 the tube left Michael’s and came home with me where I promptly started looking through my big book of ideas. It took some doing but eventually I remembered and thankfully it turned out that my project was still in season – wahoo!
As somebody who has been making Christmas crafts in February for the coming December, I was pretty darn stoked that I caught this little project supply just in time for Easter season!
For this project you will need:
- Mod Podge Matte
- Plastic, dyeable Easter eggs
- Paint brush
- Large pieces of confetti
Now I am in LOVE with these dyeable Easter eggs. You can snap them up for around $2 at Walmart or $3 at Michael’s and your creative efforts will last forever!
Brush on a very thin layer of Mod Podge about the size of your circle cut outs.
FYI – use very thin coats so that the paper will move around less and be less likely to tear, also making project will dry more quickly.
Tap your circle onto the spot and apply a small amount on top of the paper. Use your finger pushing the paper down onto the egg from the center out to the edges to get a nice, clean and flat as possible stick.
Keep going with more dots and note, the paper doesn’t have to be perfectly smooth to look awesome in the end!
As you add more and more of your dots you’ll notice that you can easily accidentally shift the pieces that have not yet dried out of place.
To prevent that from happening, have several working at once…
Simply place the wet side of each egg up and allow to dry while working on the next egg.
There they are!
Now I was pretty stoked when these were in my head but I must say that I am crazy for them in real life!
They’re so colorful and fun and were so inexpensive to make. I hope you enjoy making your own!
