Washi Tape City DIY

Let’s face it.  Kids grow quickly and their rooms are in a constant state of transition, so it can be tough to want to splash out tons of money on an expensive art feature or mural for their wall.   If you are living somewhere temporarily or are a renter, then things get even more complicated.

I recently created this quick and easy Washi Tape City DIY for my boys’ room and was delighted that my boys loved it so much. Washi tape is a great medium to create with because it is easy to work with and goes up and down without tearing up the walls.

To create your own Washi Tape City, simply gather up your favorite washi tape and decide on an overall idea for your mural.  I liked varying the width and height of the buildings to add interest and even gave a couple of the buildings windows.  Otherwise, just start tearing and applying.  The best part about this project is the versatility it offers.  You could take the same idea and make it girly with little pink houses or go monochromatic for a bold, modern statement.

My son told me that he absolutely LOVES his city view and is convinced that he has the best sleeping spot in the house.  I have been thinking about adding the paper airplanes from our Paper Airplane Party to the top, but since I knew we would be gone for a few months I didn’t want them to get too dusty while we were away.

I would say that the chances are very likely that we will be doing a similar Washi Tape City DIY in our temporary house in Atlanta as well, but I wanted to share the idea now just in case some of you are hunting for a quick and fun summer DIY project.


You can find all these great washi tapes and so much more at my favorite washi tape shop, Cute Tape.  Worldwide shipping is available!
