Looking for something a little different than plain ol’ dye this Easter? You’re in the right place for an egg-ceptional idea for this year’s decorations (and for as many egg puns as I can think up). This year, I’m making washi tape easter eggs.
Sadly, I have been really late to the washi tape train; it wasn’t until my middle school-aged cousins started making purses out of the elaborate duct tape versions several years back that I even knew it existed.
Since that time, I see it everywhere, with so many egg-citing patterns and colors; I’ve been dying to use it in some egg-cellent capacity.
DIY Washi Tape Easter Eggs
What you need:
- assorted rolls of washi tape
- optional: paint or gold leaf if you feel like mixing it up
- This is such a free-for-all that I’m not going to really post instructions. I cut up the tape in a variety of shapes and applied it right onto cooled hard-boiled eggs. (Don’t mind our Easter bunny in the background!)
- I also wanted to add some paint to a few of these. Some I did a mix of paint and washi tape..stripes, polka dots, etc. I got the tiny confetti-like polka dots by dipping the end of the brush in the gold paint.
