Steps:

1. Draw designs on the top of the eggs with your paint pens – hearts, polka dots, stripes, triangles, chevron, whatever your heart desires! Let them dry completely.

2. While your designs are drying, pour the confetti into the small bowl.

3. Once the eggs are dry, apply a coat of Mod Podge to the bottom of the eggs with your paint brush.

4. Immediately dip the bottom of the egg into your confetti-filled bowl and rotate until the bottom of the egg is completely covered in confetti.

5. Let the eggs dry again by placing the eggs on the drying rack or by setting them bottoms up in the egg carton.

And Voilà! You’ve created the most enviable Easter egg hunt of the entire neighborhood.
