Washi Tape Owl | Spring Fling

This Washi Tape Owl is my contribution to the Spring Fling being hosted by A Little Claireification!  {If you haven’t checked out Claire’s blog, go now.  It is adorable!  I will wait for you.}  Remember when I reviewed those “Smooch” letter for Valentine’s Day from Artsy Chaos?  {If not, click here to see the post.}  I told you I would be back with that cute owl!  And since you can add washi tape to just about anything, I figured why not?  The Washi Tape Owl is the perfect little addition to my spring decor!

Hot glue gun

  1. I started by painting my owl oyster white.  The eyes are turquoise and the beak is coral.  Allow paint to dry completely before adding the washi tape.
  2. Once the paint dries, carefully apply the washi tape.
  3. Flip the owl over onto his washi tape side on your cutting mat.  Trim the excess washi tape with your Exacto knife.
  4. Next, apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the washi tape side to seal it.  Allow Mod Podge to dry.
  5. Using your hot glue gun, apply the owl’s eyes to finish it off!  {not pictured}
