February 3, 2021
HAY! How art you? If you opened this article, there is a high chance that you are a washi tape hoarder (like I am). Don’t worry, you are not alone. Washi tapes took the crafting world by storm ever since it was released as a new product in 2008 in Japan. If you are new to washi tapes, they are simply masking tapes made from rice paper, and they have a matte and slightly translucent finish. They also have low adhesiveness, making them versatile for many purposes as they can be removed from most surfaces easily. In this article, I have collated 10 creative washi tape art projects that you can easily DIY. Read on and get creative!
#1 Use washi tape for wall decor
As mentioned in the introduction, washi tape has low adhesiveness, so it peels off from walls easily without damaging the painted surface. Legend has it that it can be reused multiple times and still work. Check out this DIY video where I spruced up my empty wall with a geometric moon design using black washi tape!
