I’m always on the lookout for easy crafts my daughter and I can do together. Even though she’s seven, she still has a short attention span, so they must be fun and relatively quick. We don’t really have much in the way of Easter decorations, so we decided to decorate paper eggs with washi tape and string them up.
I found printables for the eggs. I used these and for size reasons, chose the ones that came six to a page. I printed them on cardstock, cut them out and then we started decorating.
Starting in the middle of the egg, we laid the first row of washi tape. It was pretty easy for me to wrap the tape around the edges, but the little one had a problem with it. Her eggs have some odd, square edges. From there, we used different tape and covered the entire egg.
Once we were done with the washi tape, we flipped the eggs over and laid a piece of twine along the top edge. We measured our twine out based on where we were going to hang them and then arranged the eggs. A single piece of scotch tape held the twine to the eggs.
