Christmas crafts: Washi Tape Table Christmas Tree

In today’s Christmas DIY we made a cute Christmas tree table decoration. We cut out a cone from a regular big envelope and started sticking Washi Tape on it. You start from the bottom and go up layer by layer. To achieve the tree effect do not stick the tape stripe completely onto the cone, but leave the end sticking out. As you can see we also made tree version where we did not leave the ends loose, but the ‘real’ tree version looks a lot better.

Christmas crafts: Washi Tape Christmas cards

Washi Tape Christmas cards are one of the coolest ideas ever. They look so pretty and are unique. This year we made a couple of different models. Some were done super fast; the card with the three little Christmas trees honestly just took one minute to make. Other cards, for example the one with the snowman or the Christmas balls, took a bit longer, as round shapes are a bit more tricky. Which one do you like best?

Christmas crafts: Washi Tape window decoration

With Washi Tape it is super easy to craft some unique Christmas window decorations. For this DIY we made some abstract Christmas trees by sticking colorful pieces of Masking Tape on a window in our office. You can make any shape or decoration you want. The tape can be pulled off super easily if you need to correct or remove something.
