Crafting for or with a teenager can be challenging at times but if there’s one craft supply you can be sure they’ll love, it’s definitely washi tape! This washi tape frame can be customized easily by changing out the frame, wording, or tape. With so many different patterns and colors, the Consumer Crafts washi tape section is sure to have the perfect match for even the pickiest of teenagers. Let’s get started!
- Washi Tape Multipack (I used Black Patterned)
- Unfinished 5×7 Wood Shadow Box
- 7 inch Wood Script “Love”
- Acrylic Paint (I used Neon Pink)
- Strong Glue – E6000 or Gorilla Glue
- Cutting Mat & Craft Knife Set
Step 1. Picking out the washi tape you want to use is the first step. Consumer Crafts has made it super easy with their perfectly color-coordinated 8 packs. I chose the minimal look of black and white but they have 12 different colors to choose from.
Step 2. Once you’ve selected which washi tape patterns you want to use, begin by adhering them in place over the word cut out. You can decide if you want to go horizontal, vertical, or even diagonal.
Step 3. Turn the word over and begin to cut away excess washi tape with a crafting knife. You may want to lay out a cutting mat to protect your surface. You won’t need to apply too much pressure since the washi tape is so thin.
Step 4. Paint your picture frame any desired color. I went with neon pink because I thought it was a fun contrast to the black and white letters but the choice is yours!
Step 5. Once the paint has dried completely, follow the strong glue manufacturer’s instructions to adhere the word in place on the frame.
I “love” how easy this washi tape frame is to make for yourself or for that favorite teenager in your life. With so many word, color, and washi options, the customization potential for this project is endless. Hope you have fun making one!
