Letters, Words, and Initials are all the rage right now.  Here is a super simple project using Washi tape to create your own letters and personalize them in your own style.   Washi tape is a great way to add temporary patterns and colors to any room. I can’t wait for you to see how easy this was to create.

Washi Tape Letters

Warning:  This project is addictive and can cause you to wake up in the middle of the night thinking of words you can spell. LOL

Washi Tape Supplies

Whether you are decorating a nursery, needing to add character to a play room, getting motivated with a craft room or just adding some pizazz to a room… doing so with Washi tape is super simple. This is a DIY project that you can get the kids involved in. There’s no way it can be messed up!

Washi Tape Letters Supplies:

  • Washi Tape
  • Wooden Letter(s) (spell words, initials, whatever, have fun!)
  • Acrylic Paint (I chose white because the Washi tape is somewhat translucent)
  • Box Cutter
  • Foam Brush

Washi Tape Letter Instructions:

Step 1) Begin your project by painting your wooden letter(s). Remember that Washi tape is translucent with the design on top. So whatever color you choose is going to show through the tape. Allow to dry completely.

Step 2) Once your letter(s) are dry, begin placing your Washi tape over the top of the letter. The great thing about this tape is that you don’t need scissors to cut it…simply tear in with your fingers.  Don’t worry about tearing perfect lengths…just make sure the tape extends past the letter… we will cut it away later.

Step 4) Using your box cutter, trim away the access tape.
