10 days until Christmas

Less than two weeks until Christmas Day. If you still need to get Christmas presents, write Christmas cards and prepare festive decoration it might be a very stressful time for you. Luckily our decoration tips with Washi Tape – our favourite Christmas crafting product of the year – will only take some minutes.

1. Washi Gift Wrapping

Just put some stripes of tape on single-coloured paper or even the blank gift box and you’re done. You’ve crafted a unique gift wrapping and it will just take you a few minutes.

2. Washi Wall Decoration

We have tried it for the first time this year and love it! We stuck a Christmas tree with different Washi Tapes on one of the white walls in our office. It’s fun, easy and can be removed without any traces.

3. Washi Christmas Tree Balls

We have seen quite a few Washi Christmas Tree balls on different blogs and totally love the idea of embellishing transparent or single-coloured Christmas tree ornaments with Masking Tape.

4. Washi Window Decoration

Masking Tape is also great for creating fun Christmas window decorations. As it is super thin rice paper it looks very pretty when the light falls through it.
