Washi Tape Gallery Wall

I'll admit it. I  have waaaaaaay too much art. Most of it is sitting in a cupboard in my art room, unused and lonely. It's about time I got it out of the cupboard and up on the wall!

I don't have nearly enough frames for all of these, so it's good thing I have washi tape! I created a gallery wall and used up two entire rolls of washi tape in the process. It was fun to make and I love all that color on my wall.

Washi Tape Decorating Idea: art gallery

The two methods that work best for me are:
1) Place long strips on the top and bottom of a painting.
2) Cut four small strips and place them diagonally across each corner of a painting.

It also works better if the paintings are completely flattened, not warped. That can be a problem with watercolors paintings.

Have you ever used washi tape to hang your art?

As far as I can tell, it doesn't pull the paint off my walls, so it's a win. Reminds me of how I used to tape cut-outs from magazines on the wall by my bed as as teenage... haha!

  2. This is a great idea! We have an art room with everything hung up by tape circles on the back but this looks really nice!
