I’ve made some pretty quick and easy crafts, but this may be the easiest and quickest craft EVER. I’m not sure it even counts as a craft, since it’s just tape. I haven’t used washi tape very often, but am definitely like it more, especially after getting this lovely package in the mail from Marilyn and finding $1 Valentine’s washi at Target, so I decided to make these ridiculously simple washi tape tea lights.
Since the washi tape I found at Target was geared towards Valentine’s Day, I figured this could be an easy way to dress up our dining table for the big day. Hubby and I aren’t really into celebrating V-day, although we did get engaged on Valentine’s. Go figure. This year, I imagine we’ll be staying home as usual, juggling an early bedtime for the baby and fighting a crazy toddler who won’t eat dinner. But, maybe we’ll make something special for dinner, and light a few of these decorated tea lights for a little romance amidst the chaos!
I picked up this cute strawberry tape in Taiwan – makes for a fun tea light!
And these can maybe lend some sophistication to a dining table covered with crayons, unsorted mail and superhero temporary tattoos.
I had a bunch of tea lights and rolls of tape scattered about in order to take photos that morning, and J came in to see what Mommy was up to.
He decided the tea lights would make great “cupcakes”, so he started prepping for a party….
… and baked us some stacked “mini-cakes”. Yum!
So, I guess even if you’re not using the tea lights for a dinner party, they’re great for a pretend tea party!
