Hope you’re as excited it’s the weekend as I am! And I thought what better way to kick it off than with a bit of colourful inspiration, courtesy of washi tape. If you haven’t come across this little “make and do” saviour yet, prepare to be impressed! These colourful tapes, known as Washi in Japan, are so versatile and can be put to a myriad of good uses in your wedding styling . Here are some of my favourite DIY ideas, perfect for putting your own stamp on your day, without spending a fortune.

I spent ages looking for colourful little pegs to pin up photos at my wedding. If only I’d seen read this feature in the fab book Handmade Weddings (which I bought after my wedding, Duh!) which shows how easy it is to transform the humble clothespeg into a stylish wedding detail with a little bit of tape!
Love those little flags that look great sitting on, well…anything?! With some sticks, a scissors and Washi tape, you can make your own!
Wondering how you can create some fun and colourful table numbers, that are a million miles from standard hotel ones? Pop a little Washi tape on a board, or take your cue from this DIY post and jazz up some vintage books.
I think the main appeal of Washi tape for me, is how easy it is to use. Peel, tear, and stick and you’re good to go! How pretty do these glass jars and bottles looked adorned with some pretty stripes? As washi tape is quite translucent they’d look beautiful lit up with a tea light in a jar too!

And last but not least, if you really feel like thinking outside the box, here’s a little cutlery inspiration courtesy of some washi tape and colourful pens. They’d be a gorgeous detail at a festival or picnic style wedding.
