DIY Easter Wooden Wreath

I love Washi Tape and I love Duck Brand®!  So when I was challenged to make something out of some Duck Brand Craft Tapes  I jumped at the chance!
Once I received the package with this adorable washi tape inside, it immediately said "spring" to me, and more specifically "Easter", so I started thinking of some fun Easter decor I could make.  I eventually hit on the idea of making an Easter wooden wreath wall hanging.

I started by finding some wooden picture frames.  These are available at your local craft store and are relatively inexpensive (a big bonus in my book!).

The next part was a bit of a trial and error process as I figured out the best way to achieve the look I wanted.  I thought (in error) that I could just wrap the tape around the frame, but it turned out to be a bit more complicated than that.  Not difficult, just a little time consuming.
I started by wrapping a piece of tape around each of the corners of the frame.

Then I continued wrapping individual pieces of tape overlapping them a little bit to make it look like I had wrapped one continuous piece of tape.  The corners required the tape to fold a bit at the top, but the beauty of Washi Tape is that it ends up looking a little bit like paper mache, and the folded parts actually add to the interest of the piece.

Then to make sure that the tape stayed wrapped around the back, I covered each section with long pieces of Washi Tape.  I added ribbon to use as a hanger and secured it with nothing more than the tape.  Believe it or not, it actually holds the weight of the frames.  I made sure to leave a loop of ribbon at the top for a hanger.

That's it!  And now I have a darling Easter wall or door hanging that was super easy to create!
