Using Hook & Loop Tape for Easter Decorations
Celebrating Easter with kids is a lot of fun. You can add charming ornaments to your home, enjoy Easter candy, dye Easter eggs, and have an egg hunt. Use hook and loop tape for attractive, easy decorations. A Swiss engineer invented hook and loop tape in 1941. It has one side with adhesive and another with hooks or loops. Here are some ways to use hook and loop tape around Easter.
Avoiding a Hammer and Nails
Placing decorations on your walls can be a pain. The nails leave unattractive holes, and using a hammer could disturb family members or neighbors. Instead, you can use hook and loop tape to hang banners, pictures, hints for the Easter egg hunt, and more. Just stick the hook side to the wall and attach the loop side to the object.
Making a Wreath
You can use hook and loop tape to make your own wreath:
- Buy a wire frame from a craft store.
- Wrap twine around the frame, and make sure it stays in place with hot glue. You can also buy a frame that’s already covered.
- Attach hook and loop tape to the frame.
- Make flowers, eggs, leaves, and other decorations from felt, and put them on the wreath with your kids.
- Use hook and loop tape to place the wreath on a wall.
Hiding Easter Eggs
Place hook and loop tape on some plastic Easter eggs, and then use it to hide them in some unusual places. You could put a few eggs on the underside of your kitchen table or on a closet wall and then challenge kids to find them. Make a decorative bird’s nest from twine and then place a few eggs in it with hook and loop tape.
