Washi Tape Birdhouse

I bought this plain white bird house at Joann's on clearance. I always love a good bargain! It sat in my craft closet forever because I just couldn't decide what I wanted to do with it.
 
 As part of a craft contest, I decided washi tape would be perfect to add a little color and pattern to it.



 
I chose a bright red, geometric patterned tape.

You just have to make sure you line up the patterns (much like sewing).

For contrast, I used a teal damask patterned tape.

But it didn't seem quite finished. So I added a black polka dot tape.
 

I love how just adding a little washi tape can transform a boring birdhouse. Another great thing is that if I decide I want to change colors, the washi tape can be easily removed and replaced.

I love birdhouses, and this one is so cute! I love the tapes you chose. Using the tape is much neater than painting, so I may have to give this a try one day! I'm pinning this to my birdhouse board!
