Washi Tape Wall Art

Sometimes I get a little bee in my bonnet and I just feel like freshening up my home decor a bit. This week I had one of those days and decided to use my craft stash to create a fun piece of washi tape wall art inspired by The Crafted Sparrow. I love the pop of color it adds to the room–perfect for the summer months!

I used my Cricut machine to cut out some words from a 10 x 13 inch piece of poster board. You can also print letters to use as template and cut them out with a craft knife from poster board or mat board. Be sure to use a nice thick sans serif font. Capital letters work well since they’re all the same height.

Then I covered a piece of white cardstock with strips of washi tape in a fun summer color palette. I picked mostly warm colors, and threw in one cool sea foam color to balance them out.

After trimming the excess tape off the edges with my Large Precision Scissors (since they’re non-stick) I adhered the washi covered cardstock behind the poster board and placed them both into the frame. Letter tip: be sure to save the center of any letters and add them to the washi covered cardstock like I did with my letter “O”.
