{CRAFTY TIP TUESDAY} Washi Tape Utensils


Top O’ The Mornin’ To Y’all!   
It’s Melissa O’Newell stopping by Eye Candy Event Details to bring you a quick fun budget party tutorial! 

Washi Tape Utensils
Washi Tape is a very thin paper tape that seems to come in 100’s of patterns and colors. I am obsessed with using it to brighten up any party! 
If you are not familiar with Japanese Washi Tape then you are missing out! OR maybe you bought that cute little tape and still have not found a use for it!  You are in LUCK!

All I did for this quick fun idea is take my plain old plastic utensils and pick three different patterns of Washi Tape.   

Covered them long wise and pressed down good.  The tape seems to stick VERY well to plastic. (unlike the wooden utensils where it does seem to come up more often than not).  

There you have it – fun party ware!  I love mixing up the patterns. The kids seem to really love them and I just love the pop of color it adds to the party.  I would pair with a white plate so that the colors pop out more! 

Have a great St. Patrick’s Day and until next time…Party On Friends!
