Craft: Washi Tape Ornaments

You know what I love about washi tape? You can transform the most basic item with just a little bit of it. Have plain white paper? Add a little tape and it's stationary! Have some old glass ornaments lying around, now they're fresh and contemporary! Try it out and see, your household items may never be the same again. Or in this case, your Christmas ornaments may never be the same again.

Supplies:
Glass ornaments ( old scratched ornaments are great for this project)
Washi Tape

Cut or rip the tape and apply it to the ornaments anyway you wish. One of the wonderful qualities of washi tape is that it's semi translucent which creates a wonderful overlapping effect. You can kind of see what I'm talking about with the Christmas tree ornament. I experimented with shapes, monograms and just random ripped squares. If you don't like what you make the first time, just peel the tape off and start again. Washi tape is low tack so it won't leave a sticky residue.

Warning, these are really addictive to make!

ana @ i made it so,

I usually get mine from the Kinokuniya bookstore. Probably the best place to get it is online. You can check prices at Amazon. Also, Omiyage and Modes4U carry it. I recommend checking out a few stores because it seems like everyone has different prints.

Never heard of Washi Tape until I saw this post. Oh, what a great product! I can envision so many wonderful ways to use it.

I love the Christmas tree ornament and included it as part of this week's Tutorial Thursday. I linked to both your blog and this post - the article can be seen here - Tutorial Thursday - December 1, 2011.

Wow, these are amazing, especially the Christmas tree one. I love washi tape, but so rarely use it. Your posts about it are always an inspiration.
