This weekend I decided to delve into some Easter crafts. I've been wanting to make Washi Eggs for a while now, so it seemed like the right place to start. Instead of using traditional Japanese washi paper though, I decided to create an updated version using polka dot waxed tissue paper. I also used a plastic egg instead of a handblown one-- I know my limits! :)
The first egg took a while-- measuring, drawing lines, cutting & gluing will do that. But once I got it down, the process sped up a bit.
I used this washi tape tutorial, but I found it to be a little confusing, so I detailed everything out below.
Measure your egg--
width = circumference (all the way around) at widest part of egg
length = circumference from top to bottom to top of egg - divided in half (important!)
All dried and ready for display!

Pretty, huh. So one Easter craft down... Many, many more to go!
Have a nice week!
