Christmas Washi Tape Crafts
Create Festive Dishes With Washi Tape
My favorite way to use Washi tape is for making holiday dishes. Although, I love all of the festive dishes that you an buy for the holidays, I simply don’t have room to store extra dishes. Plus, I don’t really like spending all of that money just to use them a few times. So, I use Washi tape. It’s great for decorating plates, serving bowls, trays, and candy dishes.
Holiday Candy Dishes
I like to use these little dessert dishes to hold candy and nuts. Although they have a pretty shape to them, they’re normally not so festive for Christmas. However, with the decorative Washi tape, they suddenly are party worthy. It’s such an easy transformation that you may want to keep tape on hand for every season and holiday!
