Wanna make your own Washi Tape Halloween Frame?

Here’s what you need:
Paint and paintbrush
Washi tape
Exacto knife
Scrapbook embellishments

I began by painting my frame.  Depending on the type of washi tape you use, this step may not be necessary.

A couple of weeks ago, I got this adorable black and white chevron washi tape and this cute orange striped washi tape from Pick Your Plum.  Start applying the washi tape to the frame.

Be sure to match up your lines so the chevrons look uniform.  Continue applying the washi tape until the frame is covered.

Once the frame is covered, flip the frame over to cut off the excess in the middle.

Be sure to hold your tape taut as you are cutting.  Otherwise, the tape will wrinkle and displace on the other side.  After the middle is trimmed, turn your frame back over.

Carefully trim the edges (using the beveled groove as a straight line.

Next, apply the orange striped washi tape to the edges.

Smooth over the ridges and trim the corners.
To finish it off, add your scrapbook embellishments!

Aren’t those glitter spiders adorable?  Love them!
The whole thing (minus the painting) took ten minutes.  And you wanna know the best part?  Since washi tape is easily removed, I can re-use the frame over and over again!
Do you washi?
