Need a quickie gift idea? A craft for one of the under 4-foot-and-under set?
Grab any frame with a smooth edge (beveled doesn’t work so well) and your washi tapes and get to work. No messy glue and a sleeker look than decoupage ever gave.
I was initially inspired by a pin showing an entire table covered with stripes of Washi tape in multiple colors. It gave sort of a butcher block look but in fun colors instead of shades of wood. I instantly knew this would be fun on a frame as well!
I tried covering the frame in a few different ways—in one place, just the corners, all over… but eventually landed on two accents being the most fun. However, for a kid’s room or a shower gift it might be fun to go all the way around. I also think if I’d have stuck with tapes all in one family of color, dropping the turquoise from the mix, it would have looked less circus-y when I went all the way around. Plus, change your mind like I did, and it peels right back off!
