Everywhere we looked this weekend we were bombarded with Easter décor and crafts. A quick trip to Michael’s for some felt really brought the Easter bunny season to life in our house, and since then Olivia’s been requesting that we decorate eggs. Using the Michaels 50% off one regular priced item, I picked up some Washi tape for an easy and quick egg decorating activity that would still allow us to use the eggs when we were finished with them.
The washi tapes sticks to the eggs well enough but bring them out of the fridge and wipe the eggs off with a dry cloth to make sure that there is no moisture attached to the simply decorated washi tape easter eggs. That way, the tape is going to stick and you’re going to be able to use less.
Cost: $4 washi tape (I used the Michaels 50% off coupon) and eggs – free since we’re going to use them anyway.
To make the fun washi tape cut-outs, like the star above simply take a piece of washi tape and attach it to a piece of paper, near the edge. Then, use a small punch and cut the shapes into the strip of tape. Since washi tape is easily removed from paper, remove the tape, but be careful not to rip it and place it back on to the egg.
We are hosting an Easter play brunch and I think this would be a great way to have decorated but still edible eggs that are going to be used in omelettes throughout the brunch, using items that you already have around the house.
What are some of the simple easter egg decorating techniques that you use at-home? We’ve got five dozen eggs from a trip to Costco that I bet are going to be decorated before they’re consumed this month.
