Introduction: Eggciting Washi Eggs
Washi Tape is a decorative paper tape. The name Washi refers to a Japanese paper. This decorative tape is great because it removable and repostionable. The tape is usually slightly translucent and a little stretchy. Most rolls come in 1/2 inch (1cm) widths, It comes in a ton of designs.
I am crazy about copper so when I saw these tapes I decided on this eggciting project!

Step 1: Supplies
Washi Tape (Hobby Lobby) Use the app and the 40% off coupon.
Plastic Eggs (.59 cents a dozen -Hobby Lobby)
Step 2: Wrapping the Eggs
I decorated the eggs by cutting the tapes into different widths of strips. Decorations are horizontal and vertical.
Step 3: Decorating the Egg
Measure around the egg, cut the tape. Peel off the backing of the tape, starting at the bottom of the egg attach the tape.
Step 4: Stretching the Tape
As you wrap the egg gently pull the tape and press into the egg to get the wrinkles out.
Step 5: The Next Step
The eggs were so much fun to make I made 5 dozen one night. I hadn't decided how to use them. Easter Brunch Tablescape will be perfect.
Step 6: Pulling It All Together
I had the Bunnies, Tablecloth and dishes
Glasses (came with solid copper band)
Deviled Egg Plate ( all from .99 cent store)
I thought the plain white plates looked a little dull so I added tape is removable so I added it to the plates and cups.
Step 7: The Details
I was trying not to duplicate any of the designs. I tried using the taped whole and found that is was hard to get the wrinkles out. Some of the designs are a little wider than others.
Step 8: Easter Brunch
The plates are pretty decorated. It brings the setting together.
Step 9: Happy Easter
