7 Fun and Simple Washi Tape Crafts I Want to Make

4 years ago

I've become something of a washi tape addict. I don't want to tell you how many rolls I have or how many different storage containers are filled with it. Let's just say I have a lot but not as much as some people I know.

This is the first washi tape I purchased at a Ben Franklins in Kailua, HI, somewhere around 5/12/12.

This is the first project I ever did, using washi tape. My daughter and I made closet dividers for my grandson's wardrobe while we waited for him to make his appearance. Here's the post about children's closet dividers that inspired me and I pinned this post about closet dividersthat set me on the path toward using washi tape!

Right now I'm mostly using washi tape in my Filofaxes and art journaling, though I have a lot of ideas about how I want to use it in the future. Here are some of the posts that are inspiring me to do more with my washi tape stash.

I think I'm going to do something like this Planner Makeover to decorate the cover of my next art journal.

I have some grungy votive candles that would look awesome with this washi wrapped votive candle makeover.

I'm thinking about turning some scraps of paintings done by my grandson, Johnny Mac Pippin, into note cards using this watercolor washi tape thank you note idea.

When we move in a couple of years, I'm going to make these washi tape letters to decorate a space for my grandson. So adorable, right?

I love this washi tape sculpture and since my daughter loves elephants, I'm going to use the washi tape from my grandson's room dividers to cover an elephant this way. I think it will be a nice reminder of the craft we did together while we waited for him to arrive!

I'm very tempted to add a washi tape wall accent to my office. I have some nice typewriter tape that would look cool -- but I might not have enough. I wonder if I can find a few more rolls...

Last but not least, why didn't I think of this? You can make your own washi inspired tape in exactly the colors and designs you want. Duh. Must try this ASAP.

Have you made something awesome with washi tape, leave your ideas and links in the comments below -- you can never have too many washi tape ideas (or too many rolls of washi tape...)
