I’ve got another fun DIY for you today from Mariana from So Much Life. She’s sharing a fun washi tape Easter egg project with us today with a bonus project of making your washi eggs into a cute table centerpiece. The first project is perfect for those of you with little ones too – a no mess way to decorate eggs. Enjoy!
What you’ll need for both projects: washi tape, hardboiled eggs, egg carton box, ribbon of choice, skewers, hot glue gun, acrylic paint & paint brush
Step 1: Paint the half egg carton box and let it dry.
Step 2: While the paint dries, coat the eggs one by one with washi tape, and give it a patchwork look.
Step 3: Arrange the eggs in the painted box.
Step 1: Place a dash of hot glue on the tip of the stick and carefully enter the egg. Pour more hot glue around the egg just to fix it (with polystyrene eggs, do not use hot glue, just insert the stick into the egg).
Step 2: Coat the eggs with washi tape pieces until it is fully covered.
Step 3: Tie a ribbon at the end of the egg (where the stick starts) and tie a little bow on it!
Aren’t those so cute? I’m really loving the washi egg idea, and you could do it on plastic eggs or hardboiled (or even foam ones). If you do it on plastic eggs you could decorate each half seperately so you can still put goodies inside for the little ones.
Here’s a little roundup of other ways I love to decorate eggs for Easter:
gilded marble eggs
watercolor letter eggs
handpainted pastel eggs
What’s your favorite way to decorate eggs? Charlie and I will be coloring them the old fashioned way, although this tip makes it much easier for little hands. Happy decorating!
