made at home: washi tape decorated vase

Items you will need:

  • Washi Tape
  • Vase (or other glass container) 
  • * Optional ribbon and hot glue gun

   In this DIY, I used a dollar store vase that was an extremely plain style. Take the washi tape and make designs along the vase, leaving a small amount of extra at the top and the bottom. Cut the ends of the tape and use an optional amount of hot glue to secure the ends. 
*Out of washi tape, or don't have other colors? Use a hot glue gun to add a few pieces onto the vase design. 

   I know what you are thinking, "Lindsey, this is so simple, a child would do this!", and that is exactly what happened during this. Being a nanny, thinking up simple and creative ideas for the children to do is always on my mind. Today, for "arts and craft time", we used dollar store vases and decorated them with washi tape and ribbon. After seeing pretty much everything being decorated with washi tape, it was time I did more than just hang items with this one my wall. As simple as this approach is, doing this with multiple vases around the house is a great decor idea. 


  1. Well, I think it's neat! I've been hearing about this tape! The possibilities are endless because there are so many varieties. I like your vase. I think it's so pretty.
