Washi Letter DIY

I just moved into a new house after being a "gypsy" for over a year. And by gypsy, I mean, staying with lovely friends and family while we figure out where to "settle".  All of our stuff was in storage that whole time and my craft space/office was miniscule. I missed my craft supplies like whoa so you can imagine how excited I was to get my work space set up in our new place!

I am also slowly trying to get my daughter's room fixed up all cute for her and had some letters that I had stashed away for this exact reason. I decided to get her "A" out for an easy and fun piece of "flare" on her wall, if you will.

So I have a super simple DIY for you today… so easy, even the "non crafters" can do this one! This is great if you want to add a little zing to a wall or mantle or bookshelf, etc. It was so easy, it took me all of 15 minutes (and that's with a a 3 yr old helping me… and I use the word "helping" very loosely, y'all).

What you will need:

- wooden block letter(s) or object of choice… the possibilities are endless on this one!
- various colors/patterns/sizes of washi tape (found here, here or just google it… it's super easy to find!)

First, gather your supplies and summon your "helper". Then start from the top or bottom, which ever you choose… we started from the bottom, just because.

Space the tape out however you like, overlap, leave some letter showing, etc. Make sure you wrap the tape all the way around to the back so it looks nice a pretty-like. And don't leave out the undersides, a-like so:

Then hang that sucker on the wall or place it on your shelf of choice. Or give it away… that would be sweet of you. But make sure to tell them that you put some blood, sweat and tears into it. That's really important :)

And just like that, you are done! See, I told you it was super duper easy!

I'm definitely not done with this wall. Be prepared to see progress pictures of this room… it's might take a while, but we'll get there!

Happy taping!

{I would love to see pictures of your projects… Post them on the It's Hue I Love facebook page to share!}
