Do you have walls in your room that are painted with plain color? Then this DIY project is a perfect match for you. Washi tape is a simple material that can help you transform your room and make it more festive-looking.
Here’s the example my friend Sara Jackson, a researcher atessayontime.com,used to make walls in her room look more elegant:
For this project you’ll need:
- Washi tape
The ruler may be optional if you’re not looking for completely even and perfect-looking geometric forms.Simply create a pattern you want to follow by doing some light pencil strokes on a wall, then take your washi tape and follow the patternby adjusting it to the wall.
You can take multi-colored washi tape,it’s entirely up to you and your vision. Washi tape allows you to follow any pattern you like, it’s simple to adjust and to remove if you make a mistake. It’s a great DIY project to involve your family and enjoy the result together.

This is a great DIY project that is perfect for the wintery time of year. It will make your room look more elegant, romantic and cozy. It’s very easy to make and you’llbe able to enjoy the results of this DIY project all year around.
To make DIY teacup candles, you’ll need:

The project is very easy: you take the teacups you don’t use. While the wax is melting on your stove,place wicks in your cups and secure their tips on top of the cups with a clothes peg.
