Usually used for origami, Japanese washi paper can also be used for collaging. We used it to cover plain cardboard ornament shapes that can be found at any craft store to create bright and cheerful decorations that you'll want to display long after the holiday season has ended!
iVillageWhat You'll Need:
Washi paper (sold at any art or craft store in the origami supplies section)
Glossy Mod Podge
Cardboard or Plastic ornaments
STEP 1. Tear the washi paper into small 1/2" - 1" sized pieces.
STEP 2. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the ornament and place a piece of washi paper over it.
STEP 3. Then coat the piece of washi paper with another thin layer of Mod Podge.
STEP 4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until the ornament is completely covered. Be sure to mix the placement of paper patterns.iVillage
STEP 5. If your ornament did not come with a string already attached, use a needle to sew thread through the top of your ornament. Hang and admire your craftiness!
