I’ve been known to leave things to the last minute. Holidays like Easter and Halloween tend to sneak up on me when I least suspect it and I’m often found scrambling trying to piece something festive together. Are you with me? If so, we’ve got the perfect little treat for us both right here. These glitter taped Easter eggs are a breeze to throw together in a pinch, yet look incredibly elaborate and beyond festive. Which, let’s face it, is my very favourite kind of craft.
Glitter masking tape (we got ours at Michael’s)
Hard boil or blow out your eggs.
Use a pencil to draw backwards letters on the backside of the tape (the peel-away part). You can trace stencils or fonts printed from your computer, or you can freehand the letters. You can also cut out simple shapes, like triangles, to create patterns on your eggs.
Use the exacto knife to cut out each letter and press firmly onto the egg. Voila!
