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!

  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}

      That washi tape is from Pick Your Plum. They have deals occasionally but you have to watch for them because they sell out FAST! Thanks for stopping by, Vidya!

      Thanks Rachel! I was inspired by a friend who was working on her little girl’s room!

    This is too cute! I love that she is ready for spring! A super fun way to play with washi tape. (And I didn’t know there was Paper Mod Podge! Definitely getting me some!) I’m having a link party on my blog and I’d love for you to join!

    This owl is adorable, and I am kicking myself for not snapping up the Washi Tape on Pick Your Plum a couple weeks ago! So many fun things to do with it. Now I have to find some somewhere else so I can make this, because my daughter will love it! Great job!
