So my latest DIY addiction is washi tape! I bough a 3 rolls a couple weeks ago and I’m in love this stuff. If you’re not familiar with washi tape, the best way to describe it is colorful, pretty masking tape. I’ve been sticking it everywhere, using it for packaging, decorating notebooks; there are just endless possibilities. So I decided to compile a post of with my washi tape creations along with more washi tape ideas from around the blogosphere!
Decorative Power Cords:
Power cords have always been an eyes sore for me, I hated the sight of them, all messy and scraggly. But with a little washi tape, now they’re fun and colorful. I just cut off small pieces of washi tape, and wrapped them around the cord in irregular increments to create this fun patten. This idea was inspired by DesignLoveFest.
Instead of buying expensive rugs and messing around with flooring, just buy a roll of washi tape and make your own improvised rug or floor design!
Now that we’re doing some interior decorating, don’t stop at the floors, you can create wonderful wall patterns as well. Create eclectic pictures frames right on the wall or try a this minimalist pattern that extends from the wall to the flooring. Washi tape is also easily removed so you don’t need to worry about leaving marks on the wall.
Doors are often a neglected when it comes to decorating, so why not create a fun washi tape patten, or even trim the edges for a peek-a-boo look when you open the door.
