christmas-tree-decorationsSupplies Needed to Make Your Own Washi Tape & Baker’s Twine Christmas Tree Decorations:

christmas-tree-decorationsI started by making the washi tape ornaments. I began at the top of the ornament and wound the washi tape around onto the other side. Then I cut off the tape and started another line of tape in another place.

christmas-tree-decorationsI kept wrapping the tape around until the entire ornament was covered. I played around with the tape, mixing and matching the different colors of washi tape.

christmas-tree-decorationsOnce I had a bunch of ornaments done, it was time to work on the washi tape & baker’s twine banner. First, I stretched out a length of the bakers twine. Then I folded a piece of washi tape over the baker’s twine.

christmas-tree-decorationsI cut the end of the washi tape into an inverted “v” to look more like a pennant banner. I used the different colors of tape to alternate down the twine.

christmas-tree-decorationsWhen I had enough ornaments and a long enough banner, it was time to apply the Christmas tree decorations!

christmas-tree-decorationsI used some of the baker’s twine to hang the ornaments on the tree.

christmas-tree-decorationsThese Christmas tree decorations can easily be customized to fit your holiday décor by changing up the colors you use!
