diy washi tape easter eggs

You guys, Easter’s a couple of weeks away, and I went on an Easter egg decorating binge last weekend.  I realized that I hadn’t dyed eggs in years, and I think I may have been trying to make up for lost time.  These don’t require any dye though — just get some eggs, washi tape, and scissors, and go to town.

The directions are kind of self-explanatory; just cut tape in different shapes and apply to room-temperature eggs (hard-boiled, if you wish).  The only one that was a bit tricky was the gold dot egg — I layered two types of washi tape and punched out dots with an oversized hole punch.

Whaddaya think?  Is it something that you’d try, or do you prefer the tried-and-true dyed Easter eggs?  I think these are so lovely, but I couldn’t resist a little dye action too — I’ll share those a little closer to Easter!  xoxo
