    • 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!

    •  Three things: 1. You've got one day left to enter my @mywildbird sling giveaway, so head over to my blog (link in profile) and tag your friends. 2. I was featured on @loyal_hana blog as part of their motherhood series, so if you want to give it a read and hear about my typical (hot mess) day or how I (don't) balance work and mothering head to their profile to find the link to their site. I pretty much live in their nursing-friendly clothes and was honored to be featured. 3. Charlie took this picture (and basically directed me for the shot) and it makes me really really happy   Putting the finishing touches on the boys' bedroom and had to stop to admire the magic that the morning light and their @babyjives mobile was making. ✨☁️⭐️❤️✨#charlieandcalsroomredo
       Can a person be your happy place? Because I'm pretty certain that Quincy is mine ☺️✨ #quincyrhys #thatdimpletho  This week was a rough one. I feel like I say that every week but this one really was. Today alone had me at my breaking point. All three of my kids seemed hell bent on driving me crazy. Quincy literally wouldn't let me put him down or leave the room without a major scream-cry fest. He rode around on the fuss bus allllll day. Tropical storm Calvin left destruction in his wake everywhere he went (if you follow me on snap/stories you got a little sampling but that was nowhere near the extent of it). At one point I went into a room away from my kids and sat in a chair and cried. Within three minutes one of them found me (of course) gave me a hug, and we were all better (except Calvin -- I think this is his permanent state ). This photo is my version of thinking happy thoughts. Bougainvillea vibes ✌️️✨
