Earlier this week I shared Claire’s button heart craft. While she was working on that, I was working on this – a washi heart! I have a bunch of Washi tape just hanging around. Like the buttons (and pens, and stickers, and scrapbook paper…), I just can’t seem to stop buying it.
I told myself I’d use some of the Valentine’s Day washi tape I bought OR ELSE…and so I did. And now I’ll show you how to make a washi heart, and give you a few ideas if you want to take this craft a step further.
First, you need a heart template. I printed out this heart on card stock. You could just as easily draw one, though. I folded over the top and bottom (at the edges of the heart) so I’d know where to apply the tape.
I framed it and set it on the mantel next to Claire’s button heart. They are so cute together!
This took me about 10 minutes to make (maybe…if I include the time it took me to get it framed!). I already had the washi tape, so I didn’t pay for that…it’s usually about $1/roll, but I found this awesome washi tape on Amazon for only about $3 for a bunch of rolls (and they’re RAINBOW…I sense another project coming on!).
Here are some other ideas if you want to expand on this simple craft:
- Cut out a bunch of little hearts and use them for valentines, wreaths, or a garland.
- If you want to make a garland, get some little Valentines Day clothespins at Michaels and some twine…just pin the hearts to the twine for a super simple and adorable garland for your mantel or staircase (or wherever!).
- Cover the other side in washi, too…make a bunch and hang them from the ceiling or a doorway with twine or yarn.
