DIY! Natural Confetti Eggs for Easter!

Confetti eggs are a fun and eco-friendly Easter tradition that you can easily make with kids at home!
by Hannah Medina
 
SUPPLIES
Eggs
Large Needle
Leaves or Edible Paper
Hole Punch
Tissue Paper
Glue
 
Emptying the Egg
1. To empty the contents of the egg, you’ll need eggs, a sharp object (I’ll be using a seam ripper), and a bowl to catch the egg whites and yolk.
2. Start by poking into one end of the egg with the seam ripper until you have a hole about 1 cm in radius. Into the opposite end of the egg, poke a few small holes.
3. Then, holding the egg over your bowl, blow into the side of the egg with smaller holes until the contents of the egg come out of the other end (I found that this is easier if you use a toothpick to break the yolk first).
4. After all of the whites and yolk have been emptied, rinse the egg with water and set it aside to dry.
Decorating and Stuffing the Egg with Confetti
1. For directions on using our Natural Egg Dye Kit, see our blog post here
After the eggs have completely dried, it’s time to fill with confetti!
Although you can use store-bought confetti, a fun alternative is to try making your own biodegradable confetti at home. Biodegradable confetti is better for the environment and removes the need for cleanup after breaking the eggs!
2. Gather some leaves from outside and punch holes to create some vibrant green confetti! Depending on the plants around you, you can make different colored confetti using different leaves or dried flower petals.
3. Another option is to purchase edible or biodegradable paper and punch out holes. 
4. Use a cone of paper to transfer the confetti into your dyed eggs.
5. Lastly, using a small piece of tissue paper and glue, cover the larger hole and let dry.
6. Then TADA! A completed eco-friendly confetti egg! Have a happy Easter!

Natural Earth Paint News August 2016

ARTIST HIGHLIGHT: Eco Artist and Survivor Finds Love through Earth Art

 

 

Eco artist, Pamela Hoke, has been on an artistic journey for many years to express nature as love through her writing and art.  She wrote the book “Natural Self Discovery,” and is currently creating a revised edition, which describes her recent move to the Pacific Northwest, her recent challenge with breast cancer, and a shift to Natural Earth Paints as her new medium. Her quest to discover a more earth-friendly and body-friendly art medium came about after she received two emergency grants from The Gottleib Foundation and The Haven Foundation. After surviving the worst part of her breast cancer experience, these grants helped empower her to invest in creating her entire paint inventory with Natural Earth Pigments, as it allowed her to have one paint source through which to mix in all her favorite mediums – oil, acrylic or watercolor.
