5 Decorative Tape Ideas

This is a sponsored post for the Dollar Tree but I only speak the truth!

5 Simple Washi Tape Crafts - these are all so much fun and take just minutes!  kellyelko.com

What Norm was to Cheers, I am to the Dollar Tree!

It’s my home away from home and I’m there even more now that I joined the Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club.  It’s a free club with craft and recipe ideas, contests and insider info.  Every month you’ll find great new ideas and the best part is you can print project sheets and take them shopping with you so you won’t forget a thing.


In fact, the club is how I discovered these five fabulously simple washi tape crafts.


When I waltzed into my home away from home the other day and spotted rolls and rolls of the cutest decorative tape … or washi tape, I couldn’t resist tossing one or two (ok, seven!) rolls into my basket.

In fact, everything in this post is from the Dollar Tree.


Washi Tape Candle – Hit the candle aisle, peel off the wrapper around this tall glass candle and give it your own pizazz with a few strips of colorful tape.

  5. I just joined the Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club! Haven’t shopped there in quite a while so I’m excited to see what craft ideas I can come up with. Looks like they even have contests for crafters!!! How fun!!

  6. I, also, signed up for the Dollar Tree customer list. I really didn’t know they had such a thing. It might come in handy since there is a Dollar Tree within walking distance!

    Also, very cute designs. I particularly like the idea of decorating a vase similarly to what you did with the candle.

  7. I joined! Lost of cute projects. I can’t wait to go the the Dollor Tree and see the different tapes.

  8. I’ve been visiting the 99 Cent Only Store lately to save money, lol … looks like now that I’m a card carrying member of the Value Seekers Club I better get myself on in to the Dollar Store! (juliaterpstra at sbcglobal dot net)

    I had NO IDEA they had washi tape!!! Can’t wait to see what treasures I come home with! xoxo jules

  9. I joined!!!! I go to the Dollar Tree constantly!!!! I have recently resigned from working so I am now a stay at home mom which has been awesome!!!!!!!!!! But unfortunately my craft budget has been zero!!!!!!! and I am wanting to get into crafting to try to start maybe earning some money since I am home now!!!!! and so I have been looking at your DIY craft ideas site using the items that you sell in your store!!! and have been doing some shopping at your place to try your craft ideas out!!!! so winning $100.00 from your store would be such a great financial blessing for me. Not to mention a lot of fun!! I hope I hope I hope!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Just joined and what a great idea! This looks to be a lot of fun and great money-saving ideas. Already downloaded several projects. Can’t wait to see what’s in store for Christmas! Thanks for sharing the club and for the chance to win! Email: [email protected]

  11. I’m a member, but had forgot about them having those great ideas! Thanks for the reminder. Will be looking for the washi tape at my Dollar Tree real soon.

  13. I joined! Love their ideas! Also, thank you so much for all of your creative ideas!! We’re having a ball!

  14. Wow, Dollar Tree—a Value Seekers Club??!?!? Everything’s already a dollar! I joined–those crafts looked pretty cool. Thanks, Kelly.

  15. I see this all the time and I never know what to do with it, so I pass it by. I always feel so STUCK on coming up with ideas. Love the ideas you pasted together here. Especially the notebook idea. That would definitely stick in my head and maybe the ideas would start holding together.

  16. I loooove Dollar General but did not know about the club. It’s already one of my favorite places to shop and now even more so. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. And of course I joined!

  17. LOVE LOVE LOVE Dollar Tree!!
    I can fill Christmas stockings, Halloween bags and Valentine boxes for practically nothing, and keep my house looking and smelling good while I’m doing it!!

  18. Love your post on ways to decorate using Washi Tape! I signed up with Dollar Tree. Thanks for the give-a-way!

  19. I love Dollar Tree. I have been a member of the Value Seeker Club for a few months now and I can’t believe the information they have given me.

  20. DollarTree is seriously my home away from home too. I’m a stay at home mom, and DollarTree is where the kids and I go when we just have to get out of the house. We used to go hang out at Target, but I can leave DollarTree without doing much damage to hubby’s wallet and still get some fun stuff for the is and myself. dollarTree is really stepping up their game with the washi tape.

    I joined their Value seekers Club. I get a lot of ideas for homeschool projects from there too.

  21. Wow, I had no idea there was a Value Club. Thank you for showing this, I signed up! Here I thought knowing there was a Dollar Tree was the Value!!!!
