I’ve a confession, I’ve yet to craft with Washi tape but thanks to Heidi it’s on my ‘must try’ list! -Erin
Hi everyone! I'm Heidi from Mom's Crafty Space, and I'm so excited to be here today as part of the No Ugly Ornament series.
Each year my three boys and I decorate a special Christmas tree for their playroom that is covered entirely in homemade ornaments. This year they wanted to use washi tape (my favorite crafting supply!) to create personalized monogram ornaments, and I was happy to oblige.
I started by cutting some initials out of a recycled manilla file folder. I used my Silhouette to make quick work of it, but you could easily cut these out with an Xacto knife as well.
Cover the front of your initial with pieces of tape - we used a simple stripe pattern for our ornaments, but I think a patchwork of washi tape would also look really lovely.
Turn your letter over and trim off the excess tape using an Xacto knife.
Easy peasy! You could choose to tape the back side as well at this point, but I left ours blank so that we can record our holiday wishlists and the year on it.
Since I'm a firm believer that glitter, Mod Podge and holiday crafting should go hand-in-hand, I finished my ornaments with a coat of glittery Dimensional Magic which also helps to seal and protect the piece.
Use an awl or any sharp tool that you can get your hands on to punch a small hole or two at the top, add some baker's twine for hanging, and you're all set!
