DIY Washi Tape Holder

A Dollar Store DIY...

Turn an inexpensive Dollar Tree wood tray into a cute little washi tape holder. Just add Mod Podge and Decorative Tissue Paper for a quick and easy project.

I found this cute little wood tray the other day at Dollar Tree and I thought it was the perfect size to hold a small collection of Washi Tape. 

Materials Used:


  • Lightly sand the surface of the tray with the sanding block to smooth.
  • Paint the outside with white birch paint and the inside with dark scarlet.
  • Cut the tissue paper into 3″ strips. Working one side at a time, apply Mod Podge to the side of the tray. Apply and gently smooth tissue paper. Apply tissue paper to all four sides. Allow Mod Podge to dry.
  • Use a Sanding Block on the edges of the tray to gently remove the extra tissue paper.
  • Use a Small Emory Board to gently remove the extra tissue paper from the small opening.
  • Apply one or two coats of mod podge over the tissue paper to seal.

The wood tray measures approximately 5″ x 7″ and can hold several rolls of Washi Tape.
