Quick Washi Wall Decor

This spring I framed some pretty Orla Kiely wrapping paper and was trying to decide where to hang things. Then I accidentally knocked everything over and found myself with two broken frames (but no broken records, phew!). That was annoying. I never seemed to be able to get to the framing store, so I decided to just work with what I have and do a little washi tape wall arrangement (another thing that never seemed to happen and now has, cheers).

Why did I wait so long to do this? It took me a total of 20 minutes, if that. Sometimes I procrastinate on the stupidest things, honestly. Am I alone in this? I'm pretty sure I'm not in the majority, but oh well.

Everything I used was already stacked up somewhere -or already on the wall, so assembly was pretty quick. Anybody else remember seeing how Ikea has been wrapping fabric around their frames as decor? Well I thought it was a fun idea, but I wasn't going to go pay for a frame just to do this, so how nice that I had one with a broken corner, ha. I used some fabric scraps and washi tape to 'repair' the frame into something remotely stylish. And I may not have a disco ball in my house, but I do have a garland made with some glittery wrapping paper and my round paper punch, so rock 'n roll, we have a little light reflection going on in that dark corner among the empty frames, hooray.

If you've been meaning to try this, just do it; it won't take long, I promise. If you need a little push, like me, try getting a brainwave and tell yourself you're going to do this before you have to catch the bus in less than half an hour, and then do it.

Anybody else getting in on the washi wall action? It's been sweeping Pinterest for good reason: it's easy. What projects have you been procrastinating on? The next thing on my list is an apron for a tiny tot in my life.

I like it so much! I am a graphic designer but for reasons I don't know, I am not that crafty. Sigh. But it's good to know that my daughter got that talent. So I showed her your site for inspiration.

I chanced upon your blog a year ago and have been visiting every now and then. It's only now that I get to comment. Have a nice day!
