I love Washi tape, I have so many rolls of it on my desk. Its such a cool little product and there are so many things you can do with this neat product. Those of you that saw my Home Office Post might have spotted the jar of tape on my desk and the pegs on my noticeboard. So I thought I'd share how I made my pegs along with two other really quick and easy washi tape DIY ideas for you to try. I've also linked some of my fave washi tape designs at the bottom of this post.
WASHI TAPE PEG DIY
- For this Washi tape peg DIY you'll need some standard wooden pegs with the flat sides and any design of washi tape you like.
- Lay a piece of tape along one of the flat sides of the peg and press on.
- Trim off the edges with small scissors.
Use your pegs to clip photos to a string or a grid noticeboard like mine and mix and match your designs. Stripes work really well.
WASHI TAPE PENCIL DIY
This washi tape diy is so easy to do. Cover any boring wooden round pencil with patterned tape. A standard pencil will normally take two pieces of tape.
- Apply tape along the pencil lengthways making sure to line up the pattern when you apply the second piece.
- Trim to size with scissors.
WASHI TAPE PICTURE FRAME DIY
I've used my washi tape to jazz up a couple of cheap plain IKEA photo frames.
- Apply the tape either length ways along the frame for a solid design. Cut the corners at an angle for neatness.
- Alternatively apply strips for a simpler design.
- Be sure to take out the glass and send the tape round the back and have any joins ion the inside of the frame. Once you replace glass and the back on this will keep your design in place too.
