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!

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!

  21. That’s just what I recently have done…random act of kindness project for our school’s chorus group. They like to sing at assisted living facilities and they wanted to make a little momento to each saying, “Thank You” for coming out to listen. I heard the request and made up 200 paper dove ornaments. Everyone loved them. The best blessing was making more than the chorus group and teacher smile, the gesture went on to spead the smiles forward to 200 others 🙂

  22. I just loves the moustache and lips that I downloaded from your website and have been copying them and using them for over a month. Smiles for me and others. I just printed a couple of pages for my oldest sister and her family. Trying to collect non-bendy straws,I brought home straws from restaurants lately instead of using them there. I had black and red. It gave them enough for a V-Day celebration. Thanks for sharing the fun. Now I am off to play with Washi Tape items for my stamping group.

  31. I LOVE The gray and yellow and would love to win to do another Random Act of Kindness in paying it forward.

  32. Beaded badge lanyards are really expensive to buy, but so easy to make. I’d use the money to make lanyards for co-workers who wouldn’t normally spend the money on something so pretty for themselves!

  33. I made a V’s Day topiary as I saw on Pinterest for my best friend- took a styrofoam ball and hot-glued candy hearts to it, put a dowel stick in it and put the topiary in a spray painted pink little metal container/pail. She loved it. 🙂

  34. I think I would make something special for Easter so that some of my friends have a new decoration to put out soon! I LOVE the colors of Easter so it would the perfect holiday for me to make something cute!

  36. I have a friend who has recently moved to a new town. She doesn’t know anyone there yet. TO make matters more interesting, two years ago she lost everything she owned in a fire. She’s lived very simply since then, and hasn’t got a lot of girly things to make her apartment pretty.

    I made her four chair slips for her new dining room in a gorgeous floral print as a housewarming gift. they’re actually in the mail to her today headed to their new momma!

    i also made my BFF a new kindle cover with butterflies all over it. She was very instrumental in helping me find personal freedom and also introduced me to my husband 6 year ago. So she also gave my flight. 🙂 It’s in the mail today also.

  37. My six year old son would LOVE to use it (me too) to create Teacher Appreciation gift’s for everyone that is educating him at school. Plus, he LOVES using tape and we have never used Washi tape.

  38. I already did my random acts of kindness by mailing out Valentine cards I made and adding candy and cookies to the package. I received phone calls of thanks in return on Valentine’s Day. It made my day!

  39. I’d let my kids choose something. They are ages 7, 5 & 1. My oldest especially loves going to Michaels. Both the 7 & 5 year old beg me to buy them craft stuff. Sometimes I can and do and other times I can’t. It would bring them a lot of joy to be able to pick a great project to do together.

  40. I am making a Hello Kitty vinyl sticker for a single moms cell phone case. She always loved Hello Kitty as a child but never owned anything. I think as an adult, she deserves it.

  41. I think I’d like to make a sweet friend a decorative Easter pillow this weekend. Thanks for the drawing!

  42. I love the idea with the tape. I would love to make a superman logo using the tape. I would give it to a young lady I know who is turning “16” the beginning of March. Her dad recently left the family and she is having a very difficult time. She is a straight “A” student, is a member of the Utah Swords Academy Fencing Club and recently took first place in fencing for her division. She has been a great help with her siblings while adjusting to the negative change that has taken place her their lives. She “LOVES ” anything super-man related and I thought it would be fun to have her hang this craft in her room. I know she and her mother will both pay it forward!!! They are constantly thinking of others and are involved in many service projects! Thanks!!
