Washi Tape Spoons
With under three weeks to go, 1st birthday party preparations are in full swing around here. When Rei Baby is sleeping of course, because trying to craft with an exploring almost-one-year-old is next to impossible. So while she has been down napping this afternoon, I quickly made these DIY washi tape spoons. I say quickly because they are super easy – I made 48 in about 1/2 an hour. The other good news is, these washi tape spoons work out to cost about 32¢ each. Yay!
Not only are they easy to make but the washi tape spoons will add a pop of colour to your cutlery, perfect for customising your party. This year we’re throwing a Winter Onederland party for Rei Baby and will be decorating in white, pink and touches of gold. Although other than the invitations, I haven’t got too much winter going on at the moment, so I’ll probably have to head over to Pinterest for some more research. Bummer…
When it comes to choosing the colours, I’ve tried to cut back on the amount of pink. Honestly! But in the end pink decorations are much more abundant, and thus cheaper, than white and gold products. Hopefully our nephews will overlook the fact that all plates, napkins and cups are pink. I say this because once my eldest nephew cried himself to sleep when he had to sleep in my niece’s pink bed. Boys.
These days there are so many colours, patterns, shapes and varieties of washi tape that you wouldn’t have too many difficulties finding some to match your party theme. I don’t know who invented washi tape, but thank you, it truly is wonderful!
