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.

  • LovelyLittleLife600.jpg
  • 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!

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
