Please give a warm welcome to Washi tape. The decorative Japanese masking tape is known for its affordable price and durability for all sorts of projects. But our favorite use of the tape is as an alternative to wall stencils. Create a rainbow-striped room like Kelle Boyd, the designer behind the brand Ann Kelle, put up a honeycomb pattern using Jane and Fern's how-to guide or add different-colored polka dots. Don't worry if you mess up—Washi tape can easily be removed without leaving any marks and you can reposition the same piece of tape without it losing its stickiness. A dream come true for renters and (anxious, all-thumb) crafters.
