5 Quick, Easy & Renter-Friendly Washi Tape Accent Wall Ideas
Do you love sorcery and deceit? Then you’re going to love today’s DIY project: washi tape accent wall ideas.
If you want to sass up your plain walls but can't paint or apply peel-and-stick wallpaper, washi tape is your new best friend. Why? Because she comes in all sorts of sizes, costs $3, and can be removed instantly. Today, I'm showing you five quick and easy patterns to create washi tape wall art.
As the icon Dita Von Teese said in her Architectural Digest Open Door home tour, “I really loathe white walls,” and I do too. So, if you're like me and white walls make you feel institutionalized, then try out these washi tape wall decor hacks.
Tools and materials:
- Washi tape
First, cut your washi tape into strips of approximately the same length.
Now, let’s go crazy.
1. Equals signs
For the first pattern, we’re basically putting equals signs on the walls. These are two horizontal lines parallel to each other. Spread the designs out equidistant over the wall.
Now it’s time for the remix. Go for alternating horizontal and vertical strips all over the wall.
3. Plus signs
What can I say, this washi tape pattern would be a great addition to your home decor. Just a little math humor for you there.
4. V for vary better
This is also a v. quick and easy washi tape design to create.
As Rihanna would say, shine bright like a diamond in the sky. And who doesn’t want to take interior design advice from Rihanna?
