Washi Tape Welcome Sign

I have to admit a teensy, tiny obsession with a little thing called, Washi Tape, maybe you’ve heard of it, eh?  I really think if there was a show similar to Hoarders, but for people who decorate too much with Washi, this girl here {fingers pointed to me!} would be nominated by just about everyone!  I just wish wash tape had been around when I was 8.  My entire notebook would have been covered in it!  It would have been even cooler if they had invented Michael Schoeffling Washi Tape…swoon!  If you’re not too sure about who he was, I’ll let ya Google that one….what a dreamboat!  

Back to the topic at hand – my Washi addiction… Check out my washi storage box post here:
This time, my washi addiction led me to make a new Welcome sign for my front door.  Instead of  a wreath obsession that many bloggers have, I have a welcome sign obsession.  My latest creation is of course, made with Washi!

  It was a “done in one nap time” kind of craft – which is totally my fav-o-rite!

I picked up a $2.50 blank wooden sign at Michaels.

I covered it with strips of Washi and then turned it over and trimmed off the excess Washi.
{all the while wondering, “Could I make something with these scraps of Washi?”

To finish is up , I glued on some jersey fabric flowers { I can’t link any tutorial – I followed one years ago and just remember how to do it!}, and topped it off with a vinyl “Welcome” made with my Cricut.

First you cut out 8 largish circles.  You fold in 1/2 one time, and then a second time, adding a dab of hot glue to the second fold.

Put the flowers down on your sign in a “quadrant.  The second layer gets placed in the middle of the first petal, point to middle of the flower petal.  This causes it to be a fuller flower.

The flowers pics are kind of tacky and dark.  Was a “craft on the couch” while watching Grimm kind of night.   No judging allowed!

It was an easy project – and would make a great gift!  {think Mother’s Day, people!} 

The perfect art to display on your front door, or even in the entry way!  Welcome…welcome all!
