Hi Everyone…I have called in my Craft Contributor, Leslie – to help me out
with this Friday’s post. All of us at The Everyday Home have been working
this past week on my son and daughter-in-law’s house putting in all new floors
after a water leak. And you know how it goes… new floors means new
baseboards . New crisp, white, painted baseboards means the rest of trim
throughout looks dirty and dingy, so you paint all the trim and moldings.
New wood floors means you have to buy new area rugs – and of course,
new pillows and a few lamps, too.
I call it the Redecorating Snowball Effect.
But, hopefully by the end of this weekend everything will be back in place,
and they will be back in their own home. Cause even though our house is
always open to them… we all know there is no place like your own bed at
your own Home Sweet Home.
Thanks, Leslie, for stepping in with this awesome craft project!
Hello! It’s Leslie from House on the Way and I’m so excited to be back at
The Everyday Home! Today I’m sharing an easy craft using my current
Last week I was shopping for school supplies at Walmart and I stumbled
upon some washi tape. I grabbed a variety of colors and patterns,
went home and got to work!
First, I made some absolutely adorable picture frames for my daughter
to take with her to college in a few weeks. Then I decided to decorate
her initial for her dorm room too. Obviously she needs a washi tape
I decided to only use the washi tape on the front of the initial. I placed the
first strip of tape at an angle along an edge to establish a good starting point.
I thought about wrapping the tape on the sides, but changed my mind
because it wasn’t lining up good when I started adding more strips of tape.
At the curves of the initial I used scissors to trim the tape to the
edge. I continued rotating between the two prints until the entire
letter was covered.
Since I didn’t use the tape on the sides or back, I decided to use some
of my DecoArt craft paint. First I applied a layer of Metallic in black pearl.
Once that was dry, I applied a layer of DecoArt Craft Twinkles in black.
The metallic in black pearl is a really pretty soft black that almost looks
gray and the addition of the craft twinkles gives it a little extra touch of fun!
Perfect for a college freshman!
I really like how it turned out. It will be a great addition to her dorm room.
Washi tape is so easy and fun to use and the possibilities are endless!
Pick some up today and enjoy.
Thanks, Leslie. I have a secret, I’ve never used washi tape,
but now I really wanna try it now.
Wouldn’t this initial be a great addition to a wreath?
I hope everyone had a fabulous week. Stop by on Monday as I will
be starting a new giveaway which you will LOVE.
