Our local Primary School, where my girls attend, ask for ten inexpensive Mothers' Day gifts from each family for their stall so that all the children have the opportunity of a bit of shopping spree for their Mums to the tune of 50c to $2.00. First item on my list was some glass candle holders.
Next, some washi tape. I had to give my washi tape collection a minor boost, which was a hoot of fun choosing different colours and patterns. I purchased mine from the Japanese Etsy store Uguisu but there are hundreds of places to choose from. Goodness you can even purchase a washi tape organiser and dispenser, but mine are quite happy to just sit on the shelf!!
Armed with my candle holders and washi tape, all I then needed was some scissors. Can you see where I'm going with this? This is one very quick and easy craft project.
Simply wrap the tape around the glass candle holder. At this point in the proceedings you do need a bit of perseverance in getting the tape straight and without air pockets, but washi tape is brilliant in that it can be taken off again easily and re-applied.
Once I realised that three rounds of the tape was the best fit for the size of the candle holder, the best fun was choosing the colours that might go well together. Then I popped in a tea light as I thought this would give a better light through the washi tape than the candles and hey presto, they're done!!
Anyone have any other ideas for washi tape?
Have a super weekend.
