Sitting on our Spring Mantel, they add a bit of whimsy and a splash of color! But you will have to wait a couple days to see the rest of the Spring Mantel. The Washi Tape Wooden Birds were inspired from the Washi Tape Owl from Create Craft Love.

Let’s gather our supplies…

I found most all of the supplies at Michael’s Craft Store, other craft stores will probably have similar items.

Washi Tape Wooden Birds Supplies

  • Washi Tape – the brand I found is Recollections, even with it being on sale it’s a little expensive, I think about $4 for the package, but it does go a super long way
  • Wooden Birds
  • Beads – for the eyes

Tools

  • Cutting Mat
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • X-ACTO Knife
  • Mod Podge for Paper
  • Small foam brush
  • Pencil
  • Glue for eye – I used my hot glue gun

Step 1

  • First you need to start a reference point to be sure the Washi Tape is straight
  • Use the ruler and make a couple marks, I laid the bird on the desk making sure his feet were straight and measured up from the bottom of the feet
