I completed this wall pattern using washi tape, a few weeks ago, for One Crafty Contest. I am just now getting around to posting about it! I was so excited to take on this challenge because I have never used washi tape before. I wanted to do something grand and original. That's when I had the idea for this wall. The competition challenged me to think about washi tape in a whole new way. It took 16 rolls of washi in four different patterns to complete this design.
I painted this wall slightly lighter than the other walls. I thought that I would stencil it one day! I brought in the ladder and soon found out that I needed a taller one.
|I had a little bit of help.|
Starting at the top I measured, using a yard stick, and marked 5 inches away from the slope of the ceiling. For the rest of the pattern I measured and marked 10 inches apart. I left extra length and trimmed it with an Exact-o knife. I applied the green tape first, the pink stripe second, the pink chevron third and the purple stripe fourth. This project was pretty much, stop and go, so I didn't take a lot of pictures during the process. Here are a few after shots!
This took me a few hours each day. I was given 5 days to complete this project! After the pattern was complete I knew that the old curtains would have to go. So, I found a little extra time to make new curtains too. I made them using 3 twin bedsheets, which saved on time and money. I'll do a tutorial for the curtains soon.
Maybe I have inspired you? I would love to see your washi tape projects too!
