One of my favorite techniques to create great easter eggs is using tape. You can use scotch tape, packing tape, painters tape, etc. I wouldn’t recommend double sided tape, I know from experience. LOL
- Tape (Washi, packing, or scotch)
- Hard boiled eggs
- Egg Dye (we used Paas tablets they are just so easy)

Note: You can do your all over color before the tape or after the tape.
Step 1: Tape your egg (I have used packing tape, scotch tape and washi tape they all add their own texture)
Step 2: Drop your egg into the dye
Step 3: Take out of the dye after 10-15 minutes
Step 4: Take the tape off very carefully
You will get different effect with different kinds of tape, how much you smooth out the bumps or not, how many times you change out the tape, if you cover the egg completely in tape or in stripes, and/or change colors and how long you leave it in the dyes.
Here are my leftovers from my dyeing. I have great plans for even my paper towels and my shells:
I’m going to save the eggshells as we make egg salad sandwiches (yummy!) in a baggy for a project I’m sharing soon so make sure and subscribe!!
