Easy Washi Tape Easter Eggs Even The Little Bunnies Can Enjoy

Tired of doing the same old thing when it comes to decorating your Easter eggs? So were we. This weekend we decorated Easter eggs in a way we created last year and it’s so simple even my 20-month old was able to do it.

Sometimes dipping eggs into food coloring gets messy and it’s often difficult for young kids (and even some adults!) to do. I wanted something that would be fun for them and something they could fully participate in.

Last year we tried using Washi Tape to decorate and we loved the results! My son at the time was too young to help then, but my daughter loved it so I wanted to make sure we did it again this year.

If you need a new, easy way to decorate eggs for your little bunnies, check out our Washi Tape Easter Eggs below!

You will need:

  • Hard-boiled eggs, cooled. This is very important. Make sure they are cool or the tape will peel.
  • A variety of Washi Tape with differing designs (We had about eight different designs.)
  • Clear glue


1. After you have hard-boiled your eggs, make sure they have cooled. Then cut your favorite Washi Tape into squares to begin your patch work. Obviously, mom or dad should do the actual cutting, but if you have an elemnetary school student then they can do their own. TIP: If your eggs are too hot, the Washi Tape will not stick.

2. Continue to layer different Washi Tape until your egg is completely covered.

Hey Mom, you'll enjoy these too!

3. Use the glue to help keep down some unruly edges.

I found that the sparkle Washi Tape was the biggest offender with unruly edges. It doesn’t stick or bend as well so it wasn’t as happy about conforming to the shape of the egg. However, it was a perfect way to finish off the design! Don’t you think?

Oh and these make beautiful centerpieces on Easter day too!

    What a clever idea this is. I love how each egg would be completely different depending on the tape you use!

    Love love this idea! I would never have thought to use wasabi tape! I was thinking of doing paper mache but this would be so much easier!

  • abbiecheeseman April 05, 2017 12.45 am

    Ah this is adorable! Even for us not-preschoolers, I could do this and it’d be a lot less messy than regular egg dying! Love it 🙂

    Those are super cute and easy to do. I have a strip that has all little pieces of washi. What a great way to use it all up!

    I like the idea of using washi tape instead of dyes. It is less messy and allows you to be more creative.

    I love how easy these are to make for kids and then you can choose all kinds of different colors. I bet you could even use colorful duct tape.

    This is so cute and creative! I love washi tape, so I will definitely have to try doing this for Easter. I love how colorful they turn out. Perfect for spring 🙂

    Wow this is really a great idea. I love collecting washi tapes too but I didn’t think to use this for easter eggs. That’s so cute!
