Washi Tape Eggs
Washi tape is a favorite among crafters because it’s readily available, simple to use, and comes in many cute patterns and colors. Chelsea Foy of Lovely Indeed made these stylish Easter eggs by cutting washi tape in different shapes and applying the pieces to hard-boiled eggs. Make sure the eggs are dry and at room temperature so the tape adheres.
Photo Print Eggs
Your family and friends will laugh their heads off when they see these unique Easter eggs. Victoria Hudgins of A Subtle Revelry created these eggs by printing out photos on a sheet of tissue paper taped onto normal inkjet paper. These portrait-printed eggs also make great mementos if made with white artificial eggs. See Victoria’s blog for full instructions.
