Who doesn’t love color? Washi tape, for those who are not familiar with it, is Japanese masking tape which can be found in a HUGE range of colors and patterns both in craft and hobby shops and online (of course!). It has grown into one of the biggest trends in crafting and decorating mostly because it adds a special character to our projects as well as seems to have endless applications… Some exaggerate a little bit and end up covering whole bicycles, cars and walls… Of course, on the other hand, imagination and creativity knows no limits but, at least, I wouldn’t have the patience or the ambition to take over such big projects! 🙂

I personally love washi tape and I thought that I should share with you a little inspiration on how you too can make simple and beautiful DIY projects with this piece of magic!

To start with, you can easily decorate your glass candle holders.

The list is endless! Be wild and creative! Even if you change your mind, washi tape can be easily removed without harming the surfaces which are covered. Of course, as time passes by, it’s getting stiffer and, consequently, it gets harder for you to take it off.

Happy crafting & have a great colorful weekend!
