    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.

    •  Sometimes when Calvin is really bugging the crap out of Charlie, I explain to him how I understand how it is sometimes hard to have a baby brother and how they can sometimes be annoying. Because I also had a baby brother who used to bug the crap out of me  But look how cute he was! And now he's not annoying at all, so Charlie has that to look forward to.  Happy birthday baby brother.  Last weekend Charlie introduced Calvin to one of his absolute favorite places, @californiasciencecenter. Already looking forward to this weekend's adventures! If you are looking for a place to take your kids this weekend in the area, I posted our favorite places today on the blog - link in profile!
