Greetings, DeNami friends! It's time for my December edition of Ways With Washi over on the DeNami Design blog! Today I thought I'd show you a couple of ways that you can use washi tape to build your very own DIY wreath embellishments. Let's take a look!
For my first project, I used two green DeNami washi tapes to build a wreath. I started by punching out two nesting circles from white card stock. Then I used scissors to trim fringe along one side of a long strip of Green Graph Washi Tape and adhered it around the perimeter of the larger circle with the fringe pointing outward. I gave the same fringe treatment to a long piece of Green Stripes Washi Tape and adhered it around the smaller circle. After stacking the smaller fringed circle on top of the larger circle, I filled the center of my wreath with a tiny sentiment from the Christmas Greetings Petit Four stamp set. At this point, I simply added a few red sequins and a loopy bow tied from baker's twine, and my wreath embellishment was done!

I love pairing pink with green as a nontraditional color scheme for Christmas! Next up is a larger wreath created with my favorite Christmas color combo. For this wreath, I adhered strips of Pink Stripes Washi Tape and Green Graph Washi Tape around a cardstock ring created with punches. Once all of the tape was securely fastened in place, I used my trusty scissors to trim swallowtail notches in the end of each little banner. Sweet, don't you think?

And that brings this Ways With Washi to a close! It's so hard to believe that this is my last DeNami monthly feature for 2013. It's also my last Ways With Washi feature. I've nearly exhausted my list of interesting ways to use washi tape in papercrafting projects! But never fear, I'll be back with a brand-new monthly feature here on the DeNami blog in 2014!
In the meantime, I'd like to offer you the chance to win a roll of washi tape to play with!
