Decorating eggs with washi tape is fun and easy. Wrap the entire egg in tape, or cut the tape into creative shapes. And if you change your mind, you can easily remove and replace the tape.


Ingredients and Directions


  1. POSITION the tape where you’d like to begin, then WRAP the tape around. Gently, TEAR the tape when you’re finished wrapping it, or CUT it with scissors.

  2. CUT shapes out of the tape, such as triangles or rectangles, using the scissors and PLACE the cut-outs on the egg. Or, COVER the entire egg in different kinds of washi tape.


  • Hard-boiled brown and white eggs, in shell
  • Scissors
  • Various rolls of washi tape


Washi tape comes in various widths. Note that the thinner tape wraps around the entire egg more easily than wider tape. Wider tape, however, is better for cutting out shapes.

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
