I love washi tape, there are just so many different patterns available and lots of great ways to use it. This really easy tutorial is for making pretty Easter decorations.
eggs (real, polystyrene or compressed cotton)
assorted washi tapes (I bought mine from here)
If using real eggs you will need to remove the egg from the shell by “blowing”. To do this gently skewer a hole at the top and bottom of the shell and blow out the egg into a bowl. Make sure you get out all the egg, rinse with water if necessary.
When the eggs are empty and dry paint with white paint (if the eggs are brown), if using white eggs they are ready to cover. The washi tape patterns show up more brightly on white eggs.
When the eggs are completely dry you can then cover them with washi tape. I applied the tape in different ways to achieve different effects. On some eggs I applied the tape vertically and on others horizontally.
Completely cover the eggs with tape. When finished you could display them in a bowl or glue on ribbons so you can hang them. I made both regular sized eggs and some tiny ones (using compressed cotton eggs).
