Amazing Washi Tape Crafts Ideas

washi tape ideas

Although I may seem as a crafty mom to some of you, this is how it usually goes:

1. I see a beautiful idea (that someone else thought of).

2. I show it to everybody around.

3. I start collecting the art supplies required, and promise my children that we are going to do it next Saturday.

4. Saturday comes and goes, nothing happens.

Washi tape is a great example.

I already have approximately 150 different designs:

washi tape

For those of you who are not familiar with washi tape, the latest trend in crafts and design, it is a Japanese masking tape made of rice paper with endless amazing designs. It is used for decorating walls, mirrors, furniture, glasses, endless possibilities. You can use it to hang your kids drawings or photos on the walls.

I know that most of you are not eating aΒ popsicle right now, but you can still buy the sticks.

Look at this, isn’t it the most creative, and easy to do with kids??? I am in love.

Found it in teawagontales.

By the way, in case you’re an animal lover like us, you can also try this idea from makeandtakes (this is not a washi tape craft).

  1. Many thanks for the “Like”! I’ll sure be following you!

    I have to tell you – I have 10 children, over 50 grands and somewhere around 5 or 7 great-grands, so I’ve shared a link to you on my FB. I am quite sure there will be a fair few followers from there, as well as “likes” and “shares”.

    Washi tape….hmmmm…..!

  3. You have a nice weblog over here. I just wanna thank you for all the interesting stuff on it. I’ll follow your site if you keep up the good work!

  4. What a LOVELY blog!!
    Thank you for visiting mine.

  5. You and I have something in common. I do the same thing. I find cute ideas, buy the supplies, and plan to do the crafts with my kids. When we find the time, my kids never want to do that craft! What a tape collection. I’m a bit envious. I’d find something to do with it. Wrapping gifts if nothing else. That popsicle stick craft? I have had it bookmarked for some time too. It’s darling.

  6. This is what I love the most about “mommy blogging”…finally feeling like I am not alone! LOL! I sure do have my bipolar moments, too. I also find it so amazing that complete strangers can support us more than the loves in our lives! Keep up the great work, whether it is one, two, or ten! πŸ™‚

  7. Oh my goodness! I love love LOVE your Washi Tapes projects!!

  8. Wow…. directly interest my head to read more & my heart to come back! Greetings from newbie on the block! Thank’s for visiting me, I’ll come back for more!

  9. OMG Washi Tape!!! Thank you for filling me in on this versatile product, and your ideas are great!! And the February Popsicles are my next craft project for my daughter.. Much easier and cost effective than puppets. Thanks for liking a few of my posts. I love your site.

  10. I love washi tape. Thank you so much for this post. It is great.

  11. Thanks for checking out my blog. I really enjoy yours. I love these ideas! I just discovered Washi tape around the holidays and always end up putting a handful back before reaching the register at the Paper Source store. But with a long weekend coming up with my little one and a store credit, we’re going shopping on that Washi tape wall!

  12. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I didn’t know about Washi tape before reading your post. It’s exactly what I need for two projects I have planned. Thanks for the tip!!

    Wow, I’ve never heard of Washi tape but I’m off to google now! Thanks for liking my blog earlier too, brand new to blogging and appreciated the confidence boost

  14. ohmygoodness. I need 150 designs of Washi tape.

  15. Parinita Shetty

    These are gorgeous ideas! I used to be so craft-inclined when I was younger. I think I need to start some craft projects again. Maybe dust off my old colouring books and crayons too!

  16. Love the idea of using the tape, especially the vases – they look lovely!

  17. im teaching in asia and looking for more activities for my english lessons…. this is perfect!

  18. I am in awe at your washi tape collection! I’ve wanted a few washi tape rolls myself (blue patterns always seem so pretty!), but I’ve yet to get my hands on some. Give yourself some credit – at least you get to the stage where you could do the project! That’s fantastic! πŸ™‚

  19. love washi tape — great collection of ideas!

  20. Man, you did all that with tape? All I know about is what you can do with duct tape, and it ain’t that pretty.

  21. oh my god, i love your idea on popsicles and washi tape. I am having playdate soon this weekend. I am gonna make the kids busy creating their own popsicles arts. Thanks for your blog too!

  22. Love the idea! I would like to link this post to my springpad notebook if you dont mind πŸ™‚
    Thank you for stopping by my blog.. appreciate it very much, since i just learned to write in English. All the best!

    I think I’m gonna try to make the cute animals using Popsicle sticks. I’m sure it’s gonna a fun thing to do with my lil’ cousin! πŸ˜€

  24. Washi wow! I have never heard of the stuff; is it pricey? Thanks for the like on my blog!

  25. I love this. I don’t even have kids yet but I’m going to be following your blog because these things are awesome πŸ™‚ future reference πŸ˜‰

  26. I had never heard of Washi tape, but thanks for sharing the cute ideas! My daughter is 3 1/2 and loves to do crafts, but we are limited in what we can do without a huge mess or frustration due to her age. Alot of these would be within her enthusiastic scope of craftiness. πŸ™‚

  27. My mom showed me those stick dolls & I can’t wait to make some.

  28. Love the family photo tree. Children can decorate and update with their favourite pictures.

  29. i have seen this tape everywhere and had no idea what it was for! thanks for the fabulous ideas πŸ™‚

  30. Had not heard of washi tape but am now going to check it out-great ideas, especially the vase! Thank you for sharing-

    I’ve only recently heard of washi tape. I think I’m going to have to go get some. Out of desperation once in a doctor’s office I let me kids draw on the tongue depressors. To my surprise they made little puppets like the ones you show in your first photo (minus the pretty washi tape). They were great fun to make and I keep them stashed in my purse and diaper bag. I have a feeling they will REALLY love stepping it up a notch!

  32. Wow, such a simple idea. A product that’s been around forever is given a dress and Schzam! a brand new industry plus endless crafty ideas come to life! Thanks for sharing, and thanks too for stopping by & liking my blog! xLaura

  33. I don’t just like them, i love them!!!!!!!

  34. Beautiful blog and cool projects! Keep it up. I love the drawers at the top, gorgeous!

    Cool post. Thanks for stopping by my blog and alerting me to yours. I get the bipolar comments, but I think everything you’re talking about is relevant. Keep it up!

  36. So washi tape is skinny duct tape?

  37. S. A. Young

    I don’t have kids but I occasionally get the urge to go all Martha Stewart and I collect articles with crafty ideas and the supplies to make them happen and then…don’t. Fun post!

  38. Love the lolly pop pictures, definitely need to incorporate that into something… Maybe pictorial seed labels! Thanks for the like on my blog. X

  39. Your blog is way fun. Thanks for sharing smiles with us. I have nominated you for a bouquet of awards worth seeing. Follow this link. May you be blessed!
