Washi tape (also known as masking tape) is a decorative Japanesee tape that comes in the prettiest patterns and colors. There are hundreds of different styles, with all the patterns you could ever think of.
I do love washi tape and everybody who loves design, handicraft and colors should love washi tape too. Here are 7 awesome projects made with washi tape that will convince you to order some.
1. Paper lantern makeover
This is a great way to turn a plain white £1 Ikea paper lantern in something unique and colorful. You can find the tutorial here on the Bonjour Quilt website.
2. Floral piano keys
I wouldn’t have thought of decorating the black keys of a piano (black keys have to be black, right?) and I don’t think that the boyfriend would let me do it on our piano, but nevertheless, I think it looks great!
3. Car track.
I love this idea! Making a car track with washi tapes mean that you can super easily remove or update it. Such a cool and cheap idea by Le Jardin de Juliette.
4. Patchwork chair
How to turn an old chair in a design chair? With washi tape! And probably a bit of varnish too.
5. Wall decoration
I love how Everything Emily used washi tape on this wall to decorate this wall. Black tape and loads of patience is all you would need to reproduce this great idea
6. Light switch cover.
From dull switch covers to cool ones.
7. Bike makeover
This project is suggested by the Dutch shop Hema and is a great way to give colors to a rusty bike. You can read more (in dutch) about it here.
