The 5 Best Ways to Decorate With Washi Tape

Sometimes you need a change. Not a big one (like lining up a new husband), just a little one (like crushing on your barista). Temporary and harmless. And that’s why I like washi tape. This colorfully decorated paper tape sticks to just about everything, but comes off easily, too—so it’s an easy way to revamp a tired space without a) buying all new stuff or b) making a long-term commitment to a new look. Here are five of my favorite ideas from the blogosphere for using it to update your home decor.

  • Use it to create a wallpaper effect, like Anjelika of Brit+Co.
  • Line the inside of a lamp shade, like Jackie from Tea & Lime.
  • Take Elise’s cue and stripe up a plain tabletop.
  • Change the color of your sofa or chair legs, like the team over at PoppyTalk.
  • Revamp the bottom of a tray, like Hannah from LovelyLittleLife.

Directions for all: Stick, trim, repeat!
