If you haven’t heard of washi tape, where have you been?! I am addicted to the stuff! I have more rolls than I’ll ever use but it’s something that I just can’t resist. There’s so many uses and it’s so cheap!
I mostly use washi tape for my planner to decorate and make each week look a little more festive and fun (blog post coming soon). But, I also use it to decorate things around the house too. I’ve already done a DIY Computer Decal which I love.
A few months back I found 2 of these square containers at Target for $1.98 each (steal!!). I used them for a few months but they’ve started to be more and more difficult to clean off.
After trying multiple times to get them back to white, I decided to just add some washi tape to make them more colorful and to cover up the scuff marks. I used 2 different colors of washi tape and a pair of cuticle scissors to cut the tape.
The biggest tip I can give is to start each row on the same side of the square. Then just wrap each row around, ensuring they’re straight and evenly spaced. I kept adding rows, switching colors towards the top. If a row is uneven, the washi tape can be taken off and repositioned.
Here is the final product! I couldn’t be more excited about it.
