I love washi tape and the endless possibilities. With Easter very nearly here I wanted to cheer up our home in the absence of spring sunshine.
So, I made a simple Easter egg garland using washi tape, bakers twine and white card. It is so simple and one the kids can help with. The little fairy had a lot of fun helping me cut and stick, one of her favourite activities at the moment.
So to make the garland, draw or find a suitable egg template in a size you are happy with. I found one through google images and then sized it to suit.
Cut out the egg shapes. I made nine which made a garland long enough for my mantle. You could maybe measure where you intend to put it and work from there.
Next, cover each egg shape with strips of washi tape. Have a play around and choose what you think looks best.
Trim the excess tape from the edges. To attach the eggs to the twine I used some hot glue and attached the twine to the back. You could punch a little hole and thread the twine through. I didn't have a suitable punch so stuck to the glue. Not literally, thankfully.
And that's it. Simple. Take your garland and hang is somewhere to cheer up a grey day.
You could also use the eggs individually to hang on an Easter tree or as tags for Easter gifts.
Please be kind and excuse the atrocious photos. There is little or no light today.
