Introduction: DIY Confetti Washi Tape Wall
When I started brainstorming décor ideas for the closet in our nursery, I had a design dilemma. I wanted to give it a colorful makeover, but latex paint was out – those fumes rub this pregnant lady the wrong way. And my husband can paint a regular wall with the best of ’em, but I didn’t want to make him paint a mural or stripes or some other elaborate wall treatment So I decided to try a confetti washi tape wall! We’ve been affectionately calling it the “closet confetti.”
This is something that anybody can do, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be in a closet or even in a nursery. It would look great as an accent wall in the living room, or as a photo backdrop at an event.
- Washi tape in at least 5 colors
- Damp rag to remove dust from the wall
Step 1: Let's Get Started
Begin by wiping the wall clean with a damp rag to remove any dust or oil that might prevent the tape from sticking to the wall. If there are any scuffs on the wall, I found that a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser worked really well for this.
Next, cut a handful of strips of tape in each color that you’re planning to use. My strips were all about three inches long, give or take. I didn’t measure each one, I just eyeballed it.
Step 2: Attach the Tape to the Wall
There’s no science to this, I just started taping the strips about 4-6 inches from each other in random directions. I did find that 5 colors worked well because it was rare that the same color had to end up next to itself. So I would recommend using at least 5 colors. Continue working outward until you’ve covered your entire wall.
Step 3: And You're Finished!
So cute, right?! It’s such a great way to transform a boring old white wall into something whimsical and fun without spending a ton or time or money. It's also an amazing solution for renters because the tape can easily be removed when you move out.
