Festive Mini Makes Washi Tape Candles
When it comes to Christmas I never seem to have quite enough time to make all the handmade gifts that I want to make. So, when the lovely folks over at FW Media & Stitch Create Craft asked if I’d like to take part in their Festive Blog Hop and pick a seasonal make from one of their stunning collection of Christmas books I couldn’t wait to get stuck in!
I love washi tape– this is by far the best way in the world to make something look super cute in no time…and is just the thing for festive makes!
Kami Bigler’s Washi Tape Christmas is one for me – this book is just packed with ideas for getting festive with washi tape – not that we all need any kind of excuse to stock up on yet more rolls of this pretty crafting essential! From cards and gift tags, to wreaths and decorations, there are plenty of fresh new ideas to try and great new techniques for using washi tape.
Washi tape accented tea lights is a quick Christmas crafting fix that we can all manage to fit in to our busy pre-Chrimbo schedule. With only a couple of supplies, which chances are you already have at home, you can make these pretty little candles that are perfect for fancying up your mantlepiece to dinner table, or make a sweet little last-minute gift!
This simple make is everything I love about washi tapes – you can make something very ordinary and every day, look special in no time.
As Kami suggest in her book, you can package these up in neat little bundles – with some matches – and give as gifts. I don’t know about you, but I hate that feeling when a friend or house guest presents you with a gift and you have nothing, not even a sweet little token to give to them in return, these little treats could well save you from those, “Oh Thank you! I didn’t know we were giving gifts this year!” moments!
Mix and match colourful prints from your collection, or pick a selection of different designs in the same shade for a chic festive style. I adore this cute set of 4 co-ordinating Scandi Washi Tapes, £3.95 from DotComGiftShop – is there anything more festive than this collection?
Let’s just go ahead and assume that you are going to be crafting something festive with washi tape (because we all know that you will!) so, what are you planning on making?
Psst! Share a picture of your own handmade Christmas decoration with the lovely folks at Stitch Craft Create and you could win £100 to spend at SCC! Just add your photo to their share board or use the hashtag #SCCXmas on Twitter or Instagram to enter – Good Luck!
