Christmas Wonderful: DIY Washi Tape Ornaments

Hi Design Dazzle readers, I’m Holly from Paisley Petal Events where I like to share”unique inspiration for every occasion.” I’m excited to be back again for Toni’s 100 Ideas of Christmas Wonderful! I love to see all the ideas that are shared in this fun series!

If you’ve ever visited my blog, you’ll know that I’ve been kind-of obsessed with washi tape lately and when I ran across some plain white cardboard ornaments at IKEA, I knew I could come up with a fun Christmas craft for the kids.

Washi tape ornaments

For this project you’ll need thick cardboard or chipboard ornaments, washi tape and an xacto knife – that’s it!

These particular ornaments had a white ribbon already attached, so first I removed the ribbon so the kids could decorate the ornaments.

Step 1: Add Christmas-colored washi tape to ornaments.

Step 2: Parents – use an xacto knife to cut off the excess washi tape.

Step 3: Decorate back side of ornaments with washi tape.

Step 4: Parents – use an xacto knife to cut off excess tape.

I then tied the ribbon back on the ornaments and that’s it – ready to hang on the tree!

My youngest is 5 and she loved working on this ornament craft! Younger children could also easily decorate the ornaments – you just might have to rip the tape for them and they can place it on wherever they like. For more washi tape ideas, feel free to visit me over at my blog.

Thanks again Toni, for inviting me to be part of your Christmas Wonderful series!
