Good morning! Today I am sharing how I made this striped washi tape frame tutorial. I made this striped washi tape frame for my sister as part of a thirtieth birthday package of gifts last month. I thought it was only appropriate since she has teased me in the past that these striped washi tape frames are my “signature frames.” I guess she’s right . . . after she pointed it out I realized that I did share three holiday frames like this last year! I may have a problem . . . . . 😉
To make this frame you will need an unfinished wooden frame (found at any craft store or even in the craft aisle at Walmart!), white paint, a selection of washi tape, and Mod Podge.
Begin by painting your frame white. I use spray paint b/c I’m lazy, but any white paint will do. I like the white because it gives the edges a crisp, clean look and it provide a nice, clean background for the thinner tapes.
Now just get taping! I love that you can adjust washi easily, like masking tape. Just arrange and rearrange until you find an arrangement that you like.
See what I mean about the white background? Doesn’t it make the chevron and other patterns pop?
Carefully trim the edges of the tape off with scissors. Throw a layer of Mod Podge on top to seal the tape in place and you are done! Easy peasy!
Love how this frame turned out, and I love this pic of my mama and my sisters and I from my high school days. Happy memories.
