Customise drab bottles, vases and Mason jars in an instant with a few strips of colourful washi tape – perfect for a quick spring refresh.
Brighten up shelves
Don’t bother with a lick of permanent paint; use decorative tape instead. It’s easy to remove, and you can replace it with different shades and patterns depending on the season.
Homemade birthday cards
Need a last-minute birthday card? Strips of colourful tape look just like candles… Just draw a simple flame and write your message.
Decorate stools and chairs
Wrap washi tape around stool legs for a hint of colour, or make a full-on style statement like we have by decorating the whole stool.
Cover one side of a regular clothes peg with your choice of decorative tape and glue a magnetic strip to the other and you have a pretty, practical magnet for the fridge that's ideal for kitchen storage.
Give plain cabinets and sideboards a pop of colour with a line or two of washi tape. If you want to be discreet, stick the tape to the inside edges of cupboard doors or drawers for a surprise splash of colour.
Frame your photographs
Create a collage of your favourite pictures using decorative washi tape to stick them to the wall. A landlord-friendly alternative to hanging up frames and ideal for jazzing up student bedrooms.
