I love washi tape and keep buying it, but never know what to do with it. So I’ve been pinning washi tape projects – the bunting I previously blogged about was the first I tried, and these pegs are the second project.
I like to keep things organised so these pegs suit me no end. They took no time at all to make and tart up the humble clothes pegs nicely. I could have spent all day designing different patterns out of the three rolls of tape I had to hand. Washi tape is great because if you make a mistake, it peels off easily to start again.
For the next time, I’d consider giving the pegs a coat of PVA varnish to protect and give them a nice sheen. Also I’d try and get my hands on some mini magnets to use them as handy shopping list holders for the fridge. For now I’ll use them on my pin board and shelf.
Washi tape projects began to appear in my Pinterest newsfeed recently, even more so after I pinned an idea for decorating stationery with the stuff. The first project I tried out was for mini bunting, as you can never have enough bunting in a home!
I’d found a pack of three rolls of washi tape at Tiger for mere pennies and then the only other thing I needed was string. It was a simple project and took no time at all to fold the tape around the string and then snip the corners to make the traditional bunting shape.
It’s a cute little decoration and as I have some Christmas tape too, it’s a project I will definitely try again to add an alternative to beads or tinsel on the Christmas tree.
Note: it’s now after Christmas that I’m typing up my notes and I have to admit, I didn’t have time to try the Christmas-themed washi tape bunting… Next year!
