We strongly recommend using big washi tape rolls for this so it’d be easier to create a square. Don’t forget to leave two spaces bare as well, to make it look as if the heart is sparkling.

Keep kids preoccupied with a DIY car track where you can assign different colors for “road rules.” For example, white colored washi tape for the road, green colored tape for parking slots, and red colored tape for the no-parking zones.

Most kids are afraid of the dark, so make them a cute little birdhouse lamp they can use as a nightlight. If you can also find a washi tape design that matches the walls of your kids’ room, that would be perfect.

88. Mousepad

If you can’t seem to find the right design for your mousepad, make your own with some washi tape. If you need help trimming the excess washi tape, I suggest using an X-Acto knife to get the job done.

Line strips of washi tape on your chalkboard frame but remember to go with only one direction for all the sides of the frame, even if it’s tempting to do the easier route for the shorter sides. It will look so much better if all directions are uniform.

91. Bike Helmet

Create elegant magnets with washi tapes and crystal pebbles. Since the pebbles themselves can be small, we strongly recommend using skinny yet strong magnets for this project.
