We’re in Easter prep here, and today we decided to create this washi tape Easter egg wall hanging craft! It’s such a cute little kid craft that can be done in less than an hour. It’s a great distraction for kids after school, and a fun way to decorate for the holiday! What kid doesn’t love Easter eggs, after all?
The main component of this craft is washi tape, which most people have heard of nowadays. It is a decorative paper tape that can be used for all sorts of projects! It’s not exceptionally sticky, so this craft used Mod Podge to make sure the resulting wall hanging was going to last. We’ll stick it in our holiday bin and use it next year once this season has passed by.
As a suggestion, try and use pastel washi tape/scrapbook paper for the best results. Of course you can use any colors/styles you like, but pastel will really keep with the Easter theme!
- Piece of heavyweight cardboard 9” x 9”
- White piece of paper
- 1” circle paper punch
- Various Easter themed and/or pastel rolls of washi tape
- Various Easter themed or pastel colored scrapbook paper
- 5 inch piece of string
- Push Pin
- Glue gun
- Mod podge
- Sponge paint brush
Use the white piece of paper and the pen to sketch an egg shape that is at least 9” tall.
Cut out the egg shape and use it as a template to trace the shape on the cardboard.
On the white piece of paper make horizontal stripes of washi tape and strips of scrapbook paper.
Use the modge podge to apply the scrapbook paper.
Use the paper punch to make about 6 circles.
Use the modge podge to glue the circles in a row along the center of the egg.
Use the paintbrush to spread a thin layer of modge podge over the entire egg and let this dry.
Cut out the egg shape on the cardboard.
Use the glue gun to secure the decorated egg paper to the cardboard egg.
Use the glue gun to secure the string on the top middle of the back of the egg as a place to hang it on the wall.
Use a pin to hang the decorated Easter Egg on the wall by the string. Enjoy!
