Do It Yourself, Holiday Excess

Merry and Bright | Wall Design

This was a bit more work than I expected.

Half way into taping the first letter I thought, “Oh Gawd, Crystal..You’re an IDIOT.” I took a few days break and finished up last night. I have to admit that it gets faster the more you do it. Basically the entire sign is covered in piece after piece of adorable, yet tiny, washi tape.  Because its so slim it takes quite a while to cover. You can’t believe how happy I was when it was finished. It was super adorable and I put in all this hard work…just makes you feel accomplished. 😀

You can find details and a how to on Paper & Stitch. It’s not hard.  Get some foamboard and paint a holiday message on it with acrylic paint. Cut that out with a razor and then cover with washi tape.   On Paper & Stitch she actually uses colored scotch tape, which thinking back to all that washi tape, I would have gone ahead and went with the scotch tape.

Make it enjoyable. Get a beer and rewatch Bridget Jones Diary….or however you want to pass the time.

You’ll need:

  • 2 large foam boards
  • acrylic paint and paintbrush
  • washi or colored scotch tape
  • razor
  • double sided tape to hang on wall
