Washi tape Easter Eggs

You will find it so easy to decorate your Eggs this Easter with
 Washi Tape.
First boil the eggs to the proper hardness, I boil mine for 12 minutes, getting the water to a boil and then turning it down to a simmer for 12 minutes.
Next-  Dye some of them with Red Cabbage, that's right,
Red Cabbage!
Red cabbage will dye your eggs a beautiful shade of blue.  Shred 2 cups of cabbage, place in a saucepan and add enough water to submerge cabbage.  Bring to boil and simmer for 30 minutes.  Let cool, for every 1 cup of dye add 1 TBSP of vinegar. Gently add eggs to dye solution.  Put in refrigerator over night or until you get your desired color.  It can take up to 24 hours or up to 36 hours for darker eggs, the eggs that didn't turn out very well are the one's that I covered with Fabric Washi Tape :)

Tiled Washi Tape Egg
Cut washi strips into 1/4" by 1/2"and stack along like you would when tiling a wall.

Easy Thin strip Criss-Cross Washi Tape Egg 
Slice the washi strips at 1/4"and wrap around the egg, you can do it a couple of times,
or just twice to give it a "Cross"shape, like the one below
(this little egg had a crack right down the middle, covering it with washi was a perfect solution)

Triangle slices Washi Taped Eggs
The above egg was made with just 1 color, the washi is 1/2" wide and cut at a 30 degree angle and then straight and then again at a 30 degree angle and etc.
The rainbow version below was made with 1/4" wide fabric washi strips and cut at 30 degree angles and then again at a 30 degree angle and then repeat..... making mini triangles
I have used Fabric Washi for all of these eggs, I sell this Handmade fabric washi in my Etsy Shop.
