Wednesday Goodies: Spruce up your furniture with… Washi Tape!

I’ve been sharing a Wordless Wednesday link up for, gosh, FOREVER now. I love having this link up, but I really don’t know if it qualifies as a “wordless” post. I love Wednesday’s and always have a ton to say. Ha! SO, I’m just going to change the name to Wednesday Goodies. I usually share my favorite things on this day, so this name just covers this better.

OK, onto this Wednesday’s Goodies…

Do you have any furniture pieces you love, but there’s just something missing? Well, we have this dresser in our entryway that I LOVE, but it’s pretty boring at the moment. While at Alt Summit, I saw that Better Homes and Gardens used some Washi Tape to spruce up a piece of furniture in their booth. So simple/quick/cute. SO, I’ve added a bit of washi tape to my dresser. IT’s not permanent, but I’m happy with it for the moment. Much better than the plain brown.

If you’d like to see all the details on my washi tape dresser, head on over to my Better Homes and Gardens post. Sooooo, what do you think? Any thoughts/ideas on what I should do for a more PERMANENT update to this dresser? I love the shape of this thing, but this solid color is just not cutting it for me.

Happy Wednesday,

Trendy Crafter: Tape (and a little blog hopping friday)

Trendy Treehouse is having a little fun and putting up crafty challenges each week. This first one is tape. Use any sort of tape you have to create something crafty. I chose Washi Tape. Fun stuff!

Here’s my creation: A paper/washi tape tiara…

I used the tape for the main part of the crown, as well as the flowers.

Here’s a quick tutorial:

First I started with some washi tape and created a design by taping multiple pieces to a sheet of paper. I had purchased three different colors, but I didn’t end up using the pink.

When you’ve got your tape on the paper… it’s time to trace your crowns pattern. Then cut it out! Cut out the shape for your flower petals too. I like to freehand those.

Then I used some Edgers scissors to cut out my leaves.

When I create flowers I always like to have some sort of visual for inspiration. I found these very pretty poppies in the most recent Martha Stewart Living magazine.

I used some eyelets to hold my flower petals together.

I picked out some twigs from around the house, glued some glitter on them.

Gathered up all of my pieces and attach to a headband, glue on some tissue, and: Ta Dah!
