    DIY Washi Tape Flags | Oh Lovely Day

    I love love love washi tape, so I’ve been trying to find fun and easy ways to use it. Today’s DIY is a quick, simple, cheap, and super fun addition to your wedding or party. Washi flags can be used for drink stirs, cupcake toppers, escort cards, placed at each place setting… the possibilities are endless! 

    DIY Washi Tape Flags | Oh Lovely Day

    Materials:

    • washi tape in different colors and patterns
    • bamboo skewer sticks
    • small scissors
    • pliers or similar tool for cutting down the skewer sticks to size

    DIY Washi Tape Flags | Oh Lovely Day

    As you can see above, this DIY is so easy!

    • Step 1: cut skewer to length of flag you want
    • Step 2: cut a length of washi to the size of flag you want. It’s better to be too long than too short (you can always trim it down)
    • Step 3: wrap the washi in half around the top of the skewer stick
    • Step 4: trim the washi to desired length and cut edge to make flag points
    • repeat for as many flags as you want!

    DIY Washi Tape Flags | Oh Lovely DayI love the finished product! Love these for a wedding or shower. It would be a really cute DIY detail for a kid’s party too – just be careful not to give flags to the really little ones, as they could cause injury. Common sense, I know, but sometimes it still needs to be said.

    Are you as washi obsessed as I am? What is your favorite way to use it? We have another fun and simple washi DIY coming up next week!

    PS – if you like this, you’ll love our DIY drink stirs and our washi tape eggs DIY too.

    •  7 months old today, but momma won't be taking your 7 month photo today (probably not tomorrow either) because I'm so tired from your sleeping more like a 7 week old than a 7 month old. Did you not get the 3rd baby memo? If you don't give me more sleep soon I'm going to pull a Lindsay Lohan and check myself into a nice facility due to my "exhaustion" (except in my case it really will be exhaustion). Then who will you wake up all night, huh? So can you try and just wake me up once a night? Instead of 3? Deal? DEAL!!!? #seriouslysotired #quincyrhys  Mama said there'd be days like this... Just not 200 of them in a row  good thing the company's cute. Also, currently loving this playmat from @lollalandusa - it's big and soft and cleans easily. And now we can practice sitting without worrying about head bumps when he falls over  #quincyrhys #OLDfavefinds
       I can hardly believe Quincy was ever this tiny. And now he's 7 months tomorrow. Since we are out of the infant baby gear/clothing phase, I'm selling it all at a deep discount now at @ohlovelydaysale (including this playmat!) and more this weekend if you are local. See the flyer a few posts back and head to my sale feed. Tag your expecting friends or the mom's of new babes that are in So Cal! #OLDsamplesale  Got one little corner of the boys' soon-to-be-shared bedroom done today. Once the bunkbeds arrive I may totally rearrange things but for now I'm loving this @thelandofnod table for reading, doing puzzles, and there is a hidden bin underneath where I have a Lego topper hidden so we can make it a Lego table too. And store those puzzles with all of the little pieces that drive me insane  Can't wait to finish and share more of this room (and move Cal in so I can move Quincy into the nursery and maybe get a little more sleep!) You can see the design process and inspiration that I did with the design services team from The Land of Nod on the blog as well (link in profile). #projectsharedboysbedroom #calvins3rdyear
