DIY decoration is widely used in this day and age. Washi tape, although well-known in the world of stationery, is not so well-known in the world of interior design.

However, washi tape is a perfect decoration tool for your children’s bedrooms. It can be used in various ways to provide original decorations.

We’re going to share with you a few ideas to use this decor accessory to create fun spaces and decoration for your children’s bedrooms. The best thing is that you can do it all yourself!

Washi tape as photo frames

Washi tapes can be used to create photo frames.

Placing photo frames in your children’s bedrooms can be dangerous because they can fall to the floor and break. But you shouldn’t completely dismiss the idea of decorating the walls with hand-drawn pictures, because there’s an alternative.

To solve this problem, you can use washi tape as photo frames. It comes in a wide array of colors and designs, so you’ll have endless options for creating photo frames.

To create play areas

Designate play areas in your home using washi tapes.

Washi tape can be placed almost anywhere, including on the floor. You can use it to create and designate play areas for your children.

You can make the hopscotch game pattern, a soccer or basketball field, or a parking lot for your children’s play cars. These are just a few ideas to help them enjoy their play even more.

Without a doubt, this option is very economical and practical. It uses your imagination, and you can change things once in a while.

Washi tape for the walls

Decorating your children’s walls, using washi tape is an excellent idea. Here are a few ways to do this:

Phrases or letters on the walls

Make the walls in your children's room come alive to reflect their personalities!

Decorating the bedroom walls with phrases or letters is a popular trend today. Typically, these phrases, words, or letters are placed on vinyl that is then taped to the walls.

An alternative to vinyl is using washi tape to create these phrases or words. You can fully customize everything, from the shapes down to the design, and change the phrases or words periodically.

Your child’s name, a phrase from a Disney movie, a cute word, or any phrase that identifies them are good options for words or phrases you can use.

Creating animals with washi tape

Children love animals...use washi tapes to create them!

As a general rule, children love animals. For this reason, seeing animals on their walls will excite them and make their imagination run wild.

To create these animals, outline the animal figure using a pencil so that when you cut the tape, the sizes of the strips will fit perfectly.


Houses on the wall brings a cute little touch to your children's rooms.

Another object you can create is a house. You only need two pieces of tape for the sides and another two to create the roof. If you want to add windows, a door, and a fireplace, you need more pieces.

Although it may seem like a very simple decoration, your children’s imaginations will make that house on the wall come to life.

Breathe new life into old furniture

Reinvent old furniture using washi tapes.

There may be furniture or objects in your children’s bedrooms that could do with livening up. If that’s the case, use your imagination and washi tape to reinvent it.

Washi tape can be a great way to make furniture, doors, or even power strips stand out. This will bring an original touch to your children’s bedrooms.
