Washi Tape from PMQ for Two

Washi Tape Door Design

PMQ for Two

Washi tape door designs are a very simple DIY that can be done on those ugly builder-grade doors that come in most homes and rentals. This is a great DIY for adding dimension and depth to your entry way or landing.



  • 3 rolls of 10M Washi Tape
  • Scissors
  • Straight edge application tool of your choice

How to make it

Step 1: Start with a blank, clean and dry door. I took the magic eraser to mine beforehand. You’d be surprised how many random coffee stains, pet marks (?) and random colour transfers there were.

Step 2: tart applying the washi tape while making a design. I’ve opted for a simple yet classic indentation design, much like the type of bevelling you would see on an old door.

While applying, I use a bread tab (but anything that’s got a straight edge will do) to go over the tape and help force out any air bubbles.

Step 3: In previous versions of this project I’ve used masking tape, a ruler and a straight angle to make sure everything was precise. It took about 6x as long and didn’t produce any demonstrably better results.

That’s right, this is applied free-hand! And if I can, you can too.

What’s my secret? I apply the washi tape in smaller more manageable strips. It’s easier to fix bends and keep the lines straight.

Step 4: Once completed, repeat! I had enough washi tape to do all the doors on our second floor landing (three bedroom doors, one bathroom door, and one closet door)
