Washi Tape Banner Tutorial

A few weeks ago, I shared the roadside vanity that I turned into an art station for my daughter, Kate.  I really wanted this to be a creative space for her…I want her to be completely inspired when she sits down to draw, write, or craft.  I decided to add a little bunting or banner to the top as a fun detail, but didn’t want to just cut out some paper, I wanted to use some of the fabulous washi tape we have been hoarding.  I purchased the washi tape and wooden pennants from Pick Your Plum.  Kate and I made the cutest washi tape banner, and it literally only took us 10 minutes!

We gathered up some wooden pennants that I had left over from my reusable chalkboard birthday banner and dumped our collection of washi tape on the table and got to work.

We didn’t plan anything out, and just let our creative juices flow.  Washi tape is so easy to work with…if you mess up, you simply pull it up and reposition it.  It is so easy to bend and curve easily and when you are finished, it tears off very easily.  Washi tape is a ton of fun!

Once we were finished decorating each pennant with the washi tape, we took a colored pencil and poked it through the holes at the top.

To finish it off, we simply strung some ribbon through the holes and hung it up on her art station.

I love the way it turned out!  This was such a fun little project that finished off her art station perfectly!

Didn’t it turn out great?  Have you ever used washi tape?

Did you see Kate’s new cottage bedroom reveal?

Guess what is next for Kate’s room?  New flooring.  I’m not sure if we will go with carpeting or wood floors, but I cannot wait to take that nasty, worn carpet out!
