Washi Tape Mood Board


Pin It

This super-easy project was completed in less than 30 minutes. So easy and such great satisfaction! I keep telling myself "Why didn't I do this earlier?!" I remember the mood board in my old room, back at my parents' house. A constant source of dreams and untold stories. So why should we be afraid to have a mood  board in our adult home? I think that everybody should have one. Like I do now, in the home office. 




I didn't have time to take any pics for a tutorial, but this is basically what I did:
1. Cut a wide circle in a foam sheet. I used a hula-hoop to trace the outline and an Exacto knife to  make the cut. 2. Spread the prints onto the circle randomly. 3. Use washi tape to attach each print on the mood board. For a final touch, I also covered the circle outline in washi tape.







The mood board puts a smile on my face, every time I go to my desk area. If you haven't got one already, get your washi tape and make one right now!

  2. It looks great! And I totally agree, one should always have a mood board! It's very inspirational, I always had a board but since I moved to my current home I haven't done one...I definitely will!

    1. Patty, at first I bought the washi tape online, but then I found it at a local bookshop - so now I get to see & touch the washi tape before I buy it :)
