Washi Reindeer Art

Washi, it's all the rage.  And apparently, that extends itself to Christmas decorations.  


It all started with a Goodwill purchase.  In the beginning of the year, I came across this ornate frame for $4.99 from Goodwill.


I quickly popped out the painting.  I set it in my donation pile, where each month, I rescued it but never committed to figuring out what to do with it until I came across Stylizimo DIY Antlers.

That painting, which had repeatedly been rescued from the donation pile, finally had a purpose and I couldn't wait to get started. 

I repainted the floral canvas white, using what I had...regular house paint.


Using roughly the same design Stylizimo did, I drew the reindeer shape I wanted in pencil.


Then I firmly pressed the red and white polka dot washi tape into place over the pencil lines I drew.


The finishing touch, I added some glass ornaments. 


And, now I might be saved from blogging eviction since I finally created something using washi tape.  Phew!

Thanks Stylizimo for the inspiration!

Like the barn wood trees?


 You can find them in the While Wearing Heels Etsy Shop.

  1. I usually mess up any attempts at wall art...but I'm going to show my Bella after school. I bought some washi tape for her stocking and I want her to have some ideas for it. I love how you displayed your cute deer, the little ornaments a sweet!

  6. Very cute. I still have not used Washi tape! I bet the boys would like it. I should find a craft for them to do with it. :-)
