Black and White Washi Tape Tricks

Photo courtesy of  Pinterest
It doesn't get much easier than this! Washi tape on plastic cups. If you can't pull this one off ... Face it, if I can do it, you can too! This project is an EEEBCDI! For those of you new to my blog it stands for 'easy enough even Bill can do it' (Bill is my non-crafty husband who tests our my diy projects to see how easy they are to make.)
These cups are perfect for a picnic wedding or a bride with a black and white theme. Add some black and white straws to pull the look together. Takes the look from ho hum plastic cups to WOW!
You can find washi tape in any craft store, just look for your favorite designs and colors. Or shop online.They even sell colored straws in a variety of colors and designs. .

Fancy Swizzle Sticks For Your Wedding Day

Ah! A DIY project anyone can do! On the off chance you cannot figure out how to make these on your own, head to the links below the photos all of which have tutorials (except the one above which had a Pinterest link only.)
If you've been reading my blog for awhile you know I have projects known as EEEBCDI (Easy Enough Even Bill Could Do It projects).  Bill is my non-crafty husband and he can manage to make these, no problem. So if you aren't crafty (or you are looking for a project your fiance can help out with, this is it!
Choose any design and any color and go to it! Try to keep your designs simple (K.I.S.S. Keep It Simple Stupid is the watchword for this projects. The easier the design the easier the execution (and the less likely you are to want to kill each other before it's finished.)
Hearts, Dots, Flags and whatever else you can think of will look great as fancy swizzle sticks for the drinks at your wedding.
