A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to get an email from Louise over at Laid Off Mom inviting me to participate in "DIY Date." DIY Date is a brand new project she has started where our fellow bloggers get together and have a "virtual craft night" all using the same supply/ medium. Genius, right?!? Go over and check out the Laid Off Mom blog to see what other crazy cool ideas Louise has spinning around her marvelous head.
For the initial DIY Date, Louise chose washi tape. Thanks to my blog crush on Elise, I was super familiar with the awesome-ness of washi tape. This challenge was the perfect opportunity to actually put some of that awesome to work on my own project.
This project is so simple it doesn't really need a tutorial, but here you go.
- washi tape
- bangle bracelet
- craft glue
- Modge Podge
1- Find a cheapie bracelet.
2- Dot it with glue.
3- Wrap the tape around the bracelet at a 45 degree-ish angle until it's completely covered.
4- Glue off the end.
Optional: Cover it with a light layer of modge podge to seal it. The last step is optional because I didn't do it with mine. I've wore it several times over the past couple weeks and it hasn't started to unravel, but extra baubble protection never hurts.
I am super happy with how this project turned out.
It seriously only took 15 minutes and it probably took that long because I was fumbling around with my camera. Ha. I love that this could add an extra layer of personality to a grown-up outfit or a fun rainy day project with little ones.
What have you guys been doing with washi lately?
