Over Christmas, I shared my super cute ‘Merry Christmas’ washi-tape garland with you lovely people. Well, truth be told, I only recently took it down (I had it hanging over my desk!). It was just too cute, I wanted to leave it up all year round! And so rather than have a big empty garland-sized gap, I decided to create a new DIY Washi Tape Word Garland. This way, I (and you!) will be able to create cute banners for every occasion! These little guys look adorable as cake toppers or just as a part of party decor – check this post out for some inspiration!
– Lots of cute washi tape (this project is a great way to use up your stash!)
– My washi-alphabet garland template (click here to download)
– Twine (I used awesome fluro brick-layer’s twine!)
– Glue (a glue stick or craft glue works well)
To make the garland, simply print out the template and cover the letters you need in washi tape. Get creative and experiment with creating different patterns and combinations – I love the diagonal look!
Then simply cut out each letter around the grey line. Cutting out the inside holes is optional – I think it looks great either way!
Fold each letter in half, washi-side facing out, and pop the twine in the middle. Now take your glue and add a little along the bottom of the letter. Be careful not to glue all the way up to the crease, otherwise you won’t be able to move the letters along the twine!
Once you’ve stuck all your letters on the twine, arrange them as desired and cut the twine, making sure to leave enough so you can tie up your banner.
And you’re done! It’s really as easy as that! Now every party, event and occasion can have a matching, completely adorable banner! HOORAY!
Don’t forget to share your crafty creations with #madewithpaperandpin so I can follow along! Just love seeing the lovely things you make! :)
