I can’t believe Easter is right around the corner.  It’s interesting being in a country that doesn’t celebrate the Christian holiday.  (We are a military family stationed in Japan) Not a single egg at the “dollar store!”  Of course, that didn’t stop me from decorating eggs.  Try this DIY to add modern global style to your Easter and Spring decor!

Did your mother ever blow out yoke from eggs for you to decorate?  Mine did but I didn’t realize how difficult it was until  I decided to continue the tradition this year. Oh boy, what a headache.  I blew out yoke from gorgeous brown speckled eggs with very orange yokes. If you have had fresh farm eggs you know what I’m talking about.

I found Japanese ribbon tape from the 100 yen store and spent under $3 on three rolls.  I absolutely love how they turned out.  They look very similar to traditional washi eggs.  You can try this simple DIY with washi or ribbon tape.

What you need for ribbon Easter eggs:

  1. Plastic Easter eggs or blown out eggs
  2. Ribbon or washi tape
  3. Scissors

How to make ribbon easter eggs:

  • Wide ribbon – make little cuts around the edges so they flat closer to the ends of the eggs. The ribbon will overlap a little.
  • Cut round pieces to cover the tips.

  • Thin ribbon tape- Cut strips of thin tape from the wide ribbon tape or use thin ribbon tape. Simply wrap the ribbon tape all around the egg until it is completely covered.

Tip:  As you wrap the tape/ribbon around the egg, cut little snippets about every 1/4″  so it will lay flat.

I wrapped the blue and white eggs around the middle and cut two circles for each end.  The red ribbon was cut into thin strips then wrapped around.  Both methods worked great.
