Two Berry Creative.

Goodies from Two Berry Creative.Washi tape collection.

Today I have a fun little DIY tutorial for you. It’s super cute and super easy.

First I want to talk to you about the lovely Two Berry Creative, our newest sponsor. It’s a wonderful shop filled with loads of pretty things that I adore! Things like chevron washi tape, limeade bakers twine, polka dot paper straws, stamped wooden cutlery, hot pink mini clothespins and loads more.

Two Berry Creative has a huge selection of craft, party, packaging and decor supplies. Anything from tags to bags, stencils to bunting, tins to tape. It’s really my kind of shop and I think you’ll like it too!


They even have an ongoing contest where you can win a store credit when you submit photos of your creations with their amazing products. It’s on their blog where they share all sorts of fun DIY ideas and printables. You should really check it out!

They were nice enough to send me some goodies to play with like stainless steel drinking straws, a bundle of different paper straws, blue lattice washi tape, birds on a wire washi tape, raspberry glitter tape and some yellow bakers twine.

I have a huge washi tape addiction as you can see by the photo above and I love any excuse to use the amazing stuff to make ordinary things pretty. I brightened up these average glass canisters I found at the dollar store with some of the pretty blue lattice washi tape which, as luck would have it, matches my upstairs bathroom shower curtain perfectly with colour and pattern. Can’t get any better than that!

What you’ll need…

Cylindrical glass canisters
Washi tape
Scotch tape

Start by taping a row of washi tape under the lip of the lid where the canister is most cylindrical. If the canister you’re embellishing isn’t a cylinder, the tape will get a little wonky. Match the pattern as best you can and, after a little overhang cut the washi tape.

Tape a row of scotch tape parallel to the first row of washi tape just to provide a guide for the next row of washi tape.

After securing and cutting your last row of washi tape, peel off the row of scotch tape to reveal your pretty new canister. Easy peasy and such possibilities!
