DIY: Lovely Washi Eggs

This Easter, why not try decorating eggs with Japanese washi paper?  A little finicky, but pretty straightforward - time to whip your decoupage skills into shape!  Here's a great pictorial tutorial.

  2. These are absolutely stunning. I would leave these out year round if wouldn't spoil!

  3. Aren't they pretty?
    You actually empty (blow out) the eggs before decoupaging, so you really could leave them out all year without spoiling! Though you could use wooden egg forms if you prefer.

    I've seen them done as ornaments too - threading a loop of ribbon through the top.
