Washi Tape Wall Art {DIY Craft}

How to make washi tape wall art. Easy craft idea by Amy at LivingLocurto.com

I’m excited about today’s Washi Tape Craft because it’s not only a fun and easy wall decor project, but I have teamed up with Michaels to let you know about their Craft it Forward project!

Craft it Forward with Michaels!

In honor of Random Acts of Kindness, Michaels is randomly giving away $100,000 worth of gift cards in their stores on February 17, 2013!

They hope to inspire others to “craft it forward”.  I had a blast making my washi tape wall art and giving them away.

How to Make Washi Tape Wall Art

This is such an easy and pretty craft! I am always in need of something to fill a space on a wall in my home. Knowing this was a craft I was to giveaway, I chose wall art. After deciding on a few friends who I knew would like to be surprised with some DIY art, I headed to Michaels to let my creativity flow! I wanted to do something with canvas and really happy with the way it turned out!

What you will need:

  • Canvas (These were on sale at Michaels when I was shopping. Score!)
  • Acrylic Paint – I chose Martha Stewart’s Metallic Paint in shades of gold and silver.
  • Wooden Letters
  • Washi Tape – I used several patterns from Michaels and a few from Pebbles
  • Paint Brush
  • Hot Glue
  • Mod Podge

Before I started crafting, I painting swatches on a test canvas to make sure the paint looked good with my tape patterns.

After painting your canvas, let it dry and move onto the wooden letters. I didn’t paint the letters, but just started adding tape. It was really easy. The hardest part was deciding what patterns to use!

Mod Podge will seal the tape and make sure it doesn’t peel off. I used Super Gloss Mod Podge because I liked the shine it gave the tape.

After the canvas is dry, hot glue the wooden letters to the canvas. You can frame the canvas or add tape around the sides. Then you’re all done!

I hot glued a cute party favor bag to the back of the canvas along with a note and gift card to Micheals, then delivered these to my friends encouraging them to Craft it Forward!

    I would make a collage of birds and scripture for someone at church. I led a women’s retreat for them last weekend and they showed me such love and appreciation.

  15. Also I would make some “Craft it Forward ” cards to spread the word.

  16. I tweeted, facebooked, and pinned. I really like that C for two reasons. One being those colors look so good together and the other it is the initial of my last name.

  17. I would pin cushions.
