That was 2 cool DIYs that you can do at home with washi tape but there are more cool things that I am going to share with you in this article.

Pimping Out Your Computer With Washi Tape

One of the coolest things, in my opinion, is pimping my computer with washi tape, so this is very easy and all you need is some transparent washi tape, scissors and lastly a keyboard to put the washi tape on.

Cut out the washi tape to the size of your keyboard and from there all you do is stick the washi tape wherever you want on your keyboard.

Note: If you have a laptop you can also pimp that out by measuring the outer frame of your laptop screen then just stick washi tape around it to make it look amazing.

For this next cool diy thing I found all you need is headphones or a charger and of course some washi tape of your choice.

Earphones Untangler

OK so this is also kind of a life hack because it makes it almost impossible to tangle your earphones.

Start off cutting around 1 inch of washi tape for each of your colours and wrap it around the earbuds or charger, if you want the washi tape to make your earbuds untangle then wrap washi tape around the whole thing.

History of Washi Tape

Now that we have covered washi tape DIYs why don’t we cover one last thing and that is what washi tape was originally made for.

Washi tape was named after a type of transparent paper from Japan named washi. It can be made using bamboo, hemp, rice and lastly wheat.

It is used for many types of art including origami and sometimes fancy napkins.

Washi is also normally a bit tougher than normal paper because it is made up of all-natural fibers that have been threaded or compressed together.

The inventor of washi tape was taking traditional Japanese art to the next level by turning it into a colorful tape.

Washi tape was invented in 2006 and right from day one it went crazy on the internet.
