I know that Easter is right up on us and I know that this post is kind of late, but I thought I’d share it anyway. These giant neon Duck Tape Easter eggs are so much fun to make! The little nephew and I were working them up and we had our system down like nobody’s business. Since Duck Tape is kind of hard for little hands to maneuver, he’d show me with his hands the length we needed and I’d tear it off of the roll. Worked out pretty well if I do say so myself!

And this is basically our this little crafty time started out… I made one and kind of tossed it in the corner of my office not really sure if I liked it or not (it was actually the one on the left that is kind of a wonky egg). My nephew got all excited. Did you make that? Yes, I did. Can we make some? Yes, we can.

So a project that I was like, meh about this kid thought was awesome. He asked if it was going up on the blog and I was like, okay. So here it is :)

You’ll find your foam plumbing covers at hardware stores for about a buck apiece. You can make two forms out of each (or 3 if you went a bit smaller). Simply cut the foam into 2 or three parts. Round the foam out and use a small piece of tape to secure it into a circular shape.

There’s no real delicate way of putting this, so I’m just going to say it. Squish one end of the egg in between your legs and strap some tape on the other to make the egg shape. I tried it a million different ways but this was the only way I was able to get the best results and the least wonkily shaped eggs! Suzanne Sommer’s got nothing on me!

Trace the basic shape of your egg on two pieces of cardstock so that they overlap to make the full shape. Cut out with scissors. Use those shape to make another set just like them.

Turn over and repeat for the other side.

Next start starpping your tape on as you please! Only worry about a single side at a time, covering to about the middle of the sides on each go.

Continue until you fill the first side, flip it over and tape up the back as well.

Bam! Check out all of that crazy NEON Easter goodness up there.

If you want to hang them as opposed to just set them somewhere take an eye hook and hot glue it into the foam to secure. Be careful though… it would appear that Duck Tape and hot glue don’t exactly mix (the tape just starts to melt and shrink away!).

At first we hung ours on the fence by looping the string around the pickets.

We later put them into the old Oak tree out back. They look great but don’t  photograph so well when it is storming and the wind is crazy. But I’ll be darned if I wasn’t getting this post up before Easter!

If you dig it, be sure to pin this post for Easter 2015!

    No, it’s not too late to share Easter related things, no no! I just started yesterday with sharing them and still have a draft… ;)

    I’m not a fan of neon, but I love the size of these easter eggs, they look so fun in the tree! One day, when I have a garden!

    Love, Midsommarflicka
