Learn how to make Washi tape wall art. This is an easy DIY home decor craft to fill a space on a wall in your home or to give as a gift.
Washi Tape Wall Art Is An Easy Home Decor Project
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!
In honor of Random Acts of Kindness, I hope to inspire others to “craft it forward”. I had a blast making this washi tape wall art home decor and giving them away.
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!
HOW TO MAKE WASHI TAPE WALL ART
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
Paint The Canvas with Acrylic Paint
Before I started crafting, I painting swatches on a test canvas to make sure the paint looked good with my tape patterns.
Add Washi Tape to Wooden Letters
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!
Coat the Letters with Mod Podge
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!
My friends loved their new art! It was a fun day of crafty kindness:-)
