Christmas Decoration Ideas with Washi-tapes at Home
It’s December – winter has come and Santa Clause is coming to your town soon! Have you already finished decorating your home? Here are some easy ideas for DIY Christmas decor with washi-tapes.
What is Washi-tape?
Washi-tapes were used to be known as masking tapes, which was used for protecting walls, works and etc from inks while painting. They should be completely removed after painting, so they have enough strength but are also soft, thin and easily-removable. Making use of those advantages, a Japanese factory innovated cute washi-tapes with huge variety of colors and patterns. “Washi” means “Japanese paper” and the surface is a bit rough but the texture has soft and gentle colors. They have been spread around the world and are loved by lots of people, especially stationery lovers, for decorating bullet journals, snail mails, packaging, labelling and so on!

How to Make Christmas Wall-decor?
Here is the easy instruction to make Christmas tree on your wall!
1. Prepare washi-tapes
Prepare washi-tapes in your favorite colors. We chose yellows for star, reds for decoration, greens for tree part and blacks for plant pot.
Vivid colors will be bright Christmas tree and pastel colors will be calm design.
2. Put washi-tape horizontally
Put washi-tape horizontally. It will be the Christmas tree body, so we chose light-green washi-tape.
It will decide the tree size, so you can increase or decrease the lines depending on in what size you want to make.
3. Make a star on the top
Using yellow color (or any favorite one), make a Christmas star on the top.
We made a pentagram with lines, but it will be also cute to fill in the gaps with washi-tapes.
4. Put more washi-tapes diagonally and randomly
Put more washi-tapes along the light-green washi-tapes in the instruction2 diagonally and randomly.
We used more greens for tree and reds for decorations.
5. Make a plant pot on the bottom
Using black washi-tapes, make a plant pot on the bottom. It might be too heavy to make in all in black, so we used light black for the base and some lighter blacks to make it brighter.
This washi-tape cutter will help you to put washi-tapes on your wall easily. You do not need scissors to cut. Also, because the blade is made of POM, it will be safer for children to use them rather than scissors or cutters using steel blades.
