Dollar Store DIY-How to make a Washi Tape Holder

A Dollar Store DIY

Turn an inexpensive Dollar Tree wood tray* into a cute little washi tape holder.

Just add Mod Podge and Decorative Tissue Paper for a quick and easy project.  

I found this cute little wood tray the other day at Dollar Tree and I thought it was

the perfect size to hold a small collection of Washi Tape. 

(I’m so happy that Dollar Tree is bringing in more craft supplies.)

Mod Podged Washi Tape Holder

Materials Used:

Mod Podge on a Wood Tray


  • Lightly sand the surface of the tray with the sanding block to smooth.
  • Paint the outside with white birch paint and the inside with dark scarlet.
  • Cut the tissue paper into 3″ strips.  Working one side at a time, apply Mod Podge* to the side of the tray.  Apply and gently smooth tissue paper.  Apply tissue paper to all four sides.  Allow Mod Podge* to dry.
  • Use a Sanding Block* on the edges of the tray to gently remove the extra tissue paper.
  • Use a Small Emory Board* to gently remove the extra tissue paper from the small opening.
  • Apply one or two coats of mod podge over the tissue paper to seal.

Dollar Store Crafting

With so many unique patterns of tissue paper available you should be able to easily

find the perfect pattern to decoupage your little tray.
