Washi Tape Easter Egg Garden Craft

It seems like this year is going so quickly. With Spring only days away, it means that Easter is just around the corner. With four kids at home, I am gearing up for Easter craft time to make the holiday come even faster. This year is extra special as it’s Baby Wilder’s first ever Easter, and since he’s our last baby, it’s our last first Easter ever! Insert crying emoji here. Haha. Anyway, this is the first of our Easter crafts for the year – a Washi Tape Easter Egg Garden!

I love super simple crafts like this. You don’t need anything special. If you don’t have washi tape, you can decorate any paper you like for the same effect. No need to complicate things.

Instructions

Sketch out the shape of an Easter egg that is about 3” tall and about 2 ½” at the widest point. Cut this out and use it as a template to trace 5 more onto index cards. Cut these out.

Use strips of washi tape in horizontal rows to decorate all five of the plain white Easter eggs.

Cut one of the long edges of the top of the box into a piece that is 1 inch lower than the outside of the box. Make three, ½” cuts in the bottom of the piece of cardboard to create four flaps.

Cover the outside of the box with green constructions paper so that it is even with the bottom but ½” taller than the top edge.

Use the scissors to make lots of little cuts to create the look of “grass” on the front of the box.

Use the glue gun to attach 3 of the popsicle sticks to the inside front of the box as low as they will go. Glue 4 eggs to the middle of the box and make them a little higher than the front eggs. Glue the last 3 Easter eggs to the back of the box a little higher than the middle row.

TIP: Stagger the eggs in each row so that you can see all the eggs from the front.

There you have it. A super cute washi tape Easter egg garden that your kids can look at and admire! This is a great one for letting them decorate it even further. Or you can even use it for Easter candy! The options are endless!
