Washi tape is paper tape that can be either solid or printed with assorted patterns and comes in varying thicknesses. You can usually find it in scrapbooking stores. Michaels calls theirs "Craft tape" and it is in with the embellishments.
I also used the same technique later to re-"paint" some hooks for Buggies room since I was officially too lazy to actually PAINT them...You could experiment and cover any number of different things this way - have fun!
- Washi tape (available in the scrapbooking section of Michaels)
- Mod-podge (I used gloss)
- small foam brush
- Whatever object you want to cover
Cover the object in washi tape - you can get creative with this and create a pattern - or just be boring like me and use a single tape.
Once object is done up exactly as you'd like it, insert thumbtacks in the bottom of it to lift it up off of the table for the coating step
Coat the object in mod-podge (don't forget the edges and the back - you can thank me now for the thumbtack tip) and let it dry. I usually use a bit of waxed paper as a pallette to put my mod-podge on.
Voila - washi tape decoupage!
To hang my letter - I simply stapled a ribbon to the back and hung it up!You'll be able to see the result when i do my craft room reveal ;) Soon, I promise.
