Washi tape frame

I knew that it wouldn't be long before everything plain that I owned was decorated with washi tape! Next up was this washi tape covered picture frame.

After making my washi tape butterfly box I've been looking around for inspiration, and I found a plain Ikea picture frame which is part of a project which has been forgotten for a while. These Ram frames are very cheap in Ikea, I bought them a little while ago but I'm sure they were only a couple of pounds for a pack of three. They are completely unfinished though, and they only have thick plastic instead of glass.

Covering things with washi tape is very easy, because if you make a mistake you can simply pull it off and start again, even reusing the same piece of tape. You need to do a bit of planning if you are using tape with stripes on, to make sure that they stripes all go the way that you want them to. I decided that I wanted the outer edges of the frame covered with washi tape, but I didn't need the inner edges to be covered.

I used two different tapes to cover it - thicker tape with stripes and thinner plain tape. I was really pleased with it! Next was to find something to go inside the frame and it turned out to be this Felt Name Picture - Harry.

  1. I've got some of those frames - and now I know what I'm going to do with them!

  2. Tell the truth Jen you bought the frames because of the name didn't you ;o)

    1. Well the name did mean that they caught my eye!
