Washi Tape Coasters

Let’s talk about Washi tape. Do you use it? Are you one of those people that ran to Target the second you heard it was available there? I’ll admit, I am one of those people! I’ve been eying it online since last Fall but couldn’t think of anything to do with it. Now I have all sorts of washi tape crafts planned. I’ll start off by sharing with you my new washi tape coasters. They were inspired by this pinterest find and this adorable washi tape bunny from My Sister’s Suitcase.
Like I said, I ran to Target a few weeks ago. Ok, I didn’t run but I strapped the kids into their car seats as fast as I could and headed to Target hoping there would be some washi tape left. We raced down to the office supply aisle only to find out my Target didn’t have it in stock yet. *tear*. There I was feeling silly that I drove all the way to Target during what should have been nap time for a craft product! I considered driving to Super Target in the next town over but decided I would chalk that quest up as a fail and check back in a few days. Luckily I go to Target more often than I care to admit and found it at my next visit. I even found some at Michael’s yesterday! I think it’s safe to say I have a slight addiction to washi tape right now.

In case you’re wondering, this is what you’re looking for at Michael’s. I found mine near the registers.
These were so incredibly easy to make. They took me maybe 20 minutes. I made them out of the same tiles I used in the last diy coaster tutorial I shared. They’re very inexpensive (16 cents a piece at Lowes) and make a great gift. Think Mother’s Day gift idea!
To make them I started on the top left corner so that my stripes would be diagonal. I wrapped the tape a little over the bottom then repeated until the entire tile was finished. I didn’t worry about a pattern and made them all a little different. I then finished them with a coat of Mod Podge. If you’re worryed about them sticking together you can use a varnish instead. I’ve never had a problem with the Mod Podge though. Once that dried I glued felt onto the bottom of each coaster.

I love how colorful they are. They’re my favorite coasters yet!

What’s are some of your favorite washi tape crafts?

  1. Crystal– these turned out so cute! Thanks for the shout out to my washi tape bunny :) I got that same purple tape at Michael’s and I love it! I’m actually heading back tonight to get a few of the other colors they had. I think my sister and I are officially addicted to washi tape! hahaha! Thanks again! Love the coaster idea. I’ll be including it in my roundup of washi tape ideas this Friday to end our “Washi Week” :)

  67. yes, I ran to Target and got some. I got two packages, each with five rolls. Yay! I saw these on Pinterest, and thought they were super cute. Thanks for linking them to Handmade Tuesdays.

  68. I just shared this on my FB page :)

  69. Robin M. says:

    These are so awesome….I have seen many washi tape craft ideas and keep telling myself I want to see what all the hype is all about but I don’t always have time so when I do, I find I have a better chance to make an item if I can run out and grab what I need…now that I know Target carries it, I am going to have to jump in and give it a whirl. :)

    Thank you for sharing!

  70. This is AWESOME! I’m featuring you tomorrow! XO, Aimee

  71. Super cute washi tape project I have seen so far!

  72. I may be one of those people that ran to Target and bought some there too:-) What a cute idea to cover coasters in the tape. Thanks for sharing on Trick or Treat Tuesday!!!

  73. I was just at Michael’s yesterday looking for Washi tape and am going to Joann’s this afternoon searching. I LOVE what you did with these coasters! I’m buying some for my pendants that I make – to try something new….but I’m also going to have to add these to my list. I LOVE them! Found you over at Fingerprints on the Fridge! I’d love for you to come link this up at my Tuesday Time Out Party – open all week!

  74. Very nice. I wouldn’t be surprised if I saw your coasters as inspiration for other projects on Pinspired/Rewired. These are so awesome!

  75. LOVE!!! They turned out great!

    I featured you on my blog today, come check it out:

  76. Great coasters! Featuring you at Decor2Adore{able} tomorrow!

  77. Love this idea- simple, neat, and fun! :) I’m curious- does the liquid from condensation on a cold drink not cause a problem? Maybe the ModPodge helps with this…

  78. these are amazing!! I’m gonna try them soon. Was just wondering, because where I live in doesn’t have mod podge, or I’ve never heard of it before. Is there a substitute for this? Like clear glue or something? Would definitely share this on my blog when I do this! Thanks for sharing :)

  79. I admit, I only discovered washi tape a few weeks ago. I’d never even heard of it (gasp!). I bought a bunch from Pick Your Plum and I love the colors and the bird patterned one I got.

    I just have absolutely no idea what it’s supposed to be used for! Now I have one project, super cute coasters! Be sure to post more washi tape crafts, I’ve got a lot of tape to use up!
