Washi Tape Embellished Easter Eggs

Here's a simple way to dress up Easter eggs. Just add a little washi tape to dyed eggs. You can cut the washi tape into any shape you want, circles, squares, hearts, etc. There's no right or wrong way to do it. Below are simple directions on how to dye eggs along with how to make washi dots.

How to Dye Eggs

1. Place one teaspoon of vinegar in a half cup of boiled water. Add about 10 drops of food coloring (any color) to water. Mix. Some food coloring boxes will say 20 drops but you really only need 10 unless you want your eggs extra bright.

2. Place egg in bowl and move around until you get your desired shade of color. Take out and let dry.

*I've found that the eggs usually turn a little darker & brighter in color after they're taken out of the water.

How to Make Washi Dots

To make washi dots, place a strip of washi tape on parchment paper. Punch out circles with a hole punch.

Apply dots to your egg and enjoy your work. Easy.
