How do you colorblock a tray with washi tape? This tutorial shows you how easy it is to make geometric shapes with your favorite tapes!
I’ve have this wooden tray for a while, thinking of ways to spice it up but still keep some of it’s simple wood look. Nothing a few geometric shapes made of washi tape couldn’t fix!
Washi Tape Tray
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Wooden tray
- Flexible measuring tape
- X-Acto knife
Going from one end of the tray to the other, use the measuring tape and pencil to mark the first line.
To start the second line, start in the middle of the first and continue to the end of the tray. This will make cool looking triangle shapes.
Continue until you have the pattern you want. Then lightly mark each shape with the first initial of the washi tape color desired for that area.
Stretch the tape to cover the designated area. Use the X-Acto knife to clean up the edges.
Cover the rest of the shape with the tape. Follow the pencil lines with the X-Acto knife and remove the excess tape. Tada! Repeat until you have an awesome geometric pattern.
I really love how it looks on the shelf of my desk, holding my fun paperclips and stapler. You could also hang the tray on a wall like an art piece. Would look really cute in a gallery wall!
