Confetti Easter Eggs

Try a new method of Easter Egg dyeing! There are many different ways to prepare eggs for hiding and seeking, but none produce the same results as SpectraArt Tissue. Easy, fun and unique, give this method a try this year!

Shopping list:

Let's get started!

Getting started

First, grab a sheet of each tissue color you want to work with, we used one of each color in the pack for lots of variety. The sheets are quite large so we then cut our sheets in half once, and then again, down to 1/4 of a sheet.

Tissue paper

For some simple quick and easy eggs, grab one or two colors of tissues and roughly pleat them. Then sandwich or wrap an egg between the tissue(s) and tie the ends off with rubber bands.

Grab two colors and make an egg sandwich

Twisty the sammich

Add a slug (1-2 tablespoons) of white vinegar to your cup of hot water.

Add vinegar to hot water

Grab the brush and apply the water to the tissue covered egg, you want to make sure it is really saturated and that the tissue is sticking on to the shell. Set it aside to dry.

Brush on water liberally


Pro-tip: use a mist sprayer(#MS3) to saturate the tissue covered egg!

On to the Confetti!

Grab the sheets of tissue and layer them up, it is easy to cut through a bunch of layers at once. Cut strips about 1/2 - 3/4" wide. Then layer up your strips and cut pieces off the end, randomly change the angle of your scissors to get lots of different shapes.

We heard you like color

How do you feel about.. CONFETTI ?!

Admire your pile of confetti and try to resist tossing it around (we know it is hard but we promise you can play with the leftovers later!)

Grab an egg (gently!) and your brush. Apply the vinegar water to your egg (or just dunk it) to moisten the whole surface.

Show the egg the confetti to get it in the spirit of things

Place pieces of tissue on the egg, work as quickly as you can and cover the whole egg, if the shell starts to dry out just use your brush to dab a little more vinegar water onto the shell. Once you are happy with the coverage, set the egg aside to dry in the carton and start on your next one. Have fun playing around with the colors and their placement!

Plaster little pieces of confetti all over the wet egg

The other eggs will want to join in the fun

We got lazy toward the end and just started rolling wet eggs in the confetti pile, this works too and is fun and random.

Pro-tip: It can help to go back and dampen the tissue if it looks a little dry with the brush, or mist sprayer, especially if you roll the egg in the confetti vs applying it a piece at a time.

They look excited! Let them dry and relax a little

Let your eggs dry. We left ours overnight, but yours may dry faster. Once the tissue is totally dry it may start to flake off on its own and you know it is time to brush it off the egg. Remove all the bits of tissue. It may help to have a small soft brush as some bits of tissue stick really well and if you don't have nails it can be hard to get the edge up. We liked the used bits of tissue so we saved them for another project.

After all dry the confetti skin will start to come off easily

Now that's a confetti egg party to remember

Admire your unique one of a kind eggs! If you have blown them out you can run a ribbon through the eggs and hang them. Raw eggs must be handled very carefully but eventually the insides will dry out and they can be displayed as whole eggs for years to come. If you hard boiled the eggs for the kids, once you have enjoyed them for a while you can crack and peel them. The insides should not be eaten but you can use the colorful shell pieces in other crafts.

They look exhausted

But Fabulous!



Ok, NOW you can throw around your leftover confetti or maybe you might want to save them for a fun silk scarf.
