I've had this rather boring picture frame for a long time, with intentions to drop it off with my next charity shop donation.

Boring picture frame


Instead of getting rid of it, I had an idea to give the frame a refreshed look using strips of Japanese washi tape.

I've ripped strips of alternate patterned washi tape and placed diagonally all the way around the frame without leaving gaps in-between.

The underside does not look too pretty, but it doesn't matter because it will never be on show when covered with the back of the picture frame.

The trickiest part, although not really that difficult to overcome, is the corner of the frame. I've taped pieces and used scissors to cut into the corner to allow me to fold the tape underneath itself.

I wasn't sure how it would turn out, but I'm pretty pleased with the result.

As it is such a quick and easy project I intend to try it out on a larger frame next time.

What a great idea to use Washi tape. I've seen it done with decoupage paper, lots of thin paper, and glue, but that is much more time consuming and messy. This is a really neat shortcut for a greast effect.
