Back to Basics - Washi Tape Photo Wall

Grab a roll or two (or three) of your favourite washi tape and those photos you always mean to frame / put into an album but never quite get around to. Today we're making a washi tape photo wall! This is perfect for living arrangements where you can't / don't want to make tons of holes in the walls, but bare walls drive you mad. And for those of you who get bored easily - it's super easy to put up and even easier to take down!

Here's how simple it is! Start by taping one photo to the wall, then tape a washi tape frame around it. You can grab your scissors and make perfect corners, or just tear the tape as I did. Whichever makes you happier!

Then build around that initial photo. By placing the photos before taping, you can stand back judge your arrangement and shift things as necessary. What's also nice is that when you do not stick the washi tape frame directly onto the pictures, you can change out the photos really easily without having to remove all of the tape. 

Your washi tape photo wall can start small like ours and then grow! There's really no limit to this fun (unless, of course, you run out of wall space.) And there's not reason to limit yourself to photographs. Stick up postcards, art cards, cuttings from magazines - whatever you're loving right now!

In the quick spirit of this DIY, we shot it all with Instagram! Are you an instagrammer? Find us under @omiyage_ca for images of crafty goodness, product sneak peeks... and yummy food!

My favourite ways to use washi tape are often the simplest, so I thought it was time to look back at some of the sweet and simple ways to use our favourite tape! Our series - Back to Basics with Washi Tape - will give you ideas for using these multi-tasking tapes. Some of which you may have already seen and some which might leave you asking "why didn't I think of that?"
