I can’t believe Easter is right around the corner. It’s interesting being in a country that doesn’t celebrate the Christian holiday. Not a single egg at the “dollar store!” Of course that didn’t stop me from decorating eggs.
DIY Japanese Ribbon Eggs
Did your mother ever blow out yoke from eggs for you to decorate? Mine did. I decided to continue the tradition but boy did I get a headache. I blew out yoke from our gorgeous brown speckled eggs (with orange yokes!) and spent under $3 on Japanese ribbon tape from the 100 yen store to decorate them. I absolutely love how they turned out. They look very similar to traditional washi eggs. You can try this simple DIY with washi or ribbon tape.
Tip: As you wrap the tape/ribbon around the egg, cut little snippets about every 1/4″ so it will lay flat.
I wrapped the blue and white eggs around the middle and cut two circles for each end. The red ribbon was cut into thin strips then wrapped around. Both methods worked great.
