We are so grateful for her sharing with us today her tutorial on how we could use washi tape to make our rooms more personalized! Take it away, Allie!
2. Don’t worry about overlapping the tapes on each other, we’ll fix that in a jiffy. With your X-acto knife, slowly trim the excess tape for a nice, clean edge.
3. If you’re OC like me, you can use a straight edge so that you’re sure you’re cutting a straight line. Be careful not to scratch the paint on your door though!
4. I repeated this process for all the groove edges. It’s a good idea to collect all the excess tape you cut off too, as you can use it for some other projects. Nothing should ever go to waste.
Using the same simple process, I decided to create some washi art on my walls, since wireframe geometry seems to be all the rage lately. If you have a lot of blank walls in your room, it’s a good idea to consider because you can change your design every so often when get sick of it, and maybe even get to reuse the washi tape if you’re lucky!
- Though washi tape has relatively weak stickiness, make sure that it won’t ruin your wall paint once you decide to take them out! I’ve found that it works better on concrete walls. It would be best to test it out first.
- Take a few steps back every time you add a new line of tape. Sometimes you think it looks okay when you’re up close but then it comes out skewed when you move away from it.
- Be ready to part with a good amount of tape. It almost broke my heart when I saw how much neon pink tape I had left when I finished my door! But remember, you don’t buy washi tape just so because it’s pretty to look then store it away forever. Seeing my pink door never fails to put a smile on my face, so use washi to do things that you love and make you happy!
