Today I wasn’t really sure what to post about. We’re in between the holidays, and I’m mostly just trying to spend a little more time with family and clean up my house before the weekend is over. So, I thought I’d just share something random with you. See that geometric/mountain looking wall hanging? That’s been hanging in my guest bathroom for over a year now, and it was made from nothing more than a plain white canvas and black washi tape.
All you do is use washi tape to create different triangles. You can make little circles by adhering the tape to wax paper, cutting out shapes, and then peeling it off.
As you can see in these close up photos, it doesn’t look 100% perfect at every single edge after a year (not up close anyway). But when you’re standing in the bathroom, maybe checking your hair in the mirror or brushing your teeth before bed, it’s pretty hard to notice those minor imperfections. And for the overall cost of creating this project, it’s been a great investment for the guest bathroom this past year (and probably a few more years to come).
I’ve never shared a tour of my guest bathroom because it’s not a large room, and you can see more of it in our book, Happy Handmade Home (in case you love home decor). But I thought I’d share this little random project with you just for fun. If you have some blank walls around your space, you might give washi tape art a try. It’s fun, super inexpensive, and holds up better than you might think. Thanks for letting me share! xo. Emma

Hi, I love your blog! love it. Keep it up girls!!!
I scaled this up and put it on the wall behind my bed! http://instagram.com/p/xul12Pwb0A/
I adore this!
That’s really really pretty!
love this! and so easy!
Great tips! Great site! Congratulations!
That looks so cool!
Simple yet beautiful I love it!
Love it! The black and white on yellow really works well. These could also be done without the canvas as a free alternative to wall stickers.
That would be fun! We’re WAY bossy though, you might not want me in your home as much as you think. 🙂
Yes, it’s also a DIY project (found in the book).
Love that idea!!!!
AHHHHH!!! Love, love, love this.
Ah it’d be so fun to paint over this and peel the tape off! I love this look. In fact, my new blog header evokes the same feeling:)
