It was early-December when I looked around and realized that we had no decorations. We have never purchased a tree and this year we seemed to always find something better to do besides putting up our outdoor lights…so, needless to say our house didn’t look very festive. I started thinking about where I would even put a tree and then realized I could still create a holiday atmosphere without dragging a fir into the living room. Enter washi tape, stage right.
I created this little tree for hanging cards using washi tape, string, a tinsel garland, tacks, a red glitter star from Target and IKEA Riktig clips ($2.99). Start by placing the tape on the wall, then add tacks and alternate string/tinsel on each layer. I also made little ornaments by putting washi tape on paper and cutting them out in circles. Lastly, add the Riktig Clips to each layer and wait for the cards to arrive in the mail!
