washi wednesday–easter eggs

Happy Wednesday!  You know how much I love washi tape…well, I couldn’t let Easter pass us by without giving you a few ideas on egg decorating using washi tape.

The really great thing about using washi tape to decorate eggs is that it comes off easily if you want to change it, whereas paints and dyes are more permanent.

Start off with hard boiled eggs, and be creative with your designs.  Decorate the eggs with small squares of washi tape or adhere strips of the tape around the eggs going in various directions.  Mix and match colors and patterns of washi tape.

Washi tape can be combined with dyeing the eggs, too.  Just dye the eggs as you normally would, dry them, and adhere the washi tape.
