Make Your Own Washi Tape




Most people find Washi tape super expensive. For example, one role could cost 4$. That’s why I decided to make Washi tape. Its really simple and it doesn't cost much. This project is also very good if you have a specific design in mind. It’s super fun, so you should try it out!


Step 1: What You Need

What you need
—watercolor paints
—3 paint brushes
—blank labels (You can get them at staples.)
—cup with water
—watercolor mixing tray

Step 2: Wetting Your Paints

Wet your paints and carefully then mix some together to create cool colors.

Step 3: Cutting Your Sponge

Get your sponge and cut it into a circle, square, rectangle, and a triangle.

Step 4: Painting

Start by choosing a pattern from below and the next steps will explain how to make it.

Step 5: Rainbow Pattern

Paint stripes in rainbow order. Repeat until the paper is entirely covered.

Step 6: Sponge

Take a sponge and put it in paint. Then put the sponge on your label making the label have textured color on it. Do this a couple times and then use another color if you want.

Step 7: Paint Brush Pattern

First dip your paint brush in the paint. After that press it on the label creating a small triangle. Repeat. Change colors and create an interesting pattern with it.

Step 8: Waves

Choose one color and make a squiggly line. After that do in a different color again and again until you are out of room.

Step 9: Drying

Let your patterns dry for 30 min - 1 hour. If you want to make more in the meantime, some ideas are:
- splatter paint
- spiral
- x’s
- diagonal stripes
- polka dots

Step 10: Cutting

First cut each square out. Then cut your pattern into strips. You are now finished with your wash tape! Have fun using it!
