How to Make Washi Tape Easter Eggs
Easter is quickly approaching so I thought it would be fun to share a recent DIY I created. Last year, (yes you heard that right) I planned on making these Washi Tape Easter Eggs to display on my kitchen table. I bought all the supplies, put them in my office, and I got majorly side tracked. It was only over a year later, once I recently organized my office space that I remembered I had all the supplies to make these Washi tape egg designs.
I hate when I buy stuff and forget I even own it! I’ll go shopping, get these awesome deals and then the stuff just sits in a bag or I forget I even own it. I really need a better system and a more organized plan. Surely I cannot be the only one out there with good intentions, but an overloaded schedule?
Anyhow, I wanted to share this easy Easter craft because it involves no dyes, is kid-friendly, and it can be done on any type of eggs. If you use fresh eggs just be sure you boil them for 15-20 mins and they are completely dried before adhering the Washi tape.
Since Washi tape is so versatile and comes in tons of patterns you might even have some on hand.I used some glittery designs for my eggs because I wanted them to be sparkly and a little glitzy.
To make the flowers and little “broken” glass looking pieces, I simply cut the tape into 1/2″ + squares and neatly cut them diagonally. Then, I adhered them to create a unique look. Honestly, you can do so many designs with Washi tape and there really is no right or wrong way which is awesome!
These Washi designed Easter eggs are perfect because they contain no dye and you can eat the boiled egg after if you use fresh eggs.

Those are so fun! Do you have any trouble sticking them on after you’ve colored Easter eggs?
Wow, these turned out so cute! I love all the fun uses for Washi tape.
Now this is so much cleaner and easier than painting them. Plus, they look beautiful. I love the colors you chose. Thanks for sharing
