There’s really no wrong way to washi tape your computer cord, but you might want to have a fun pattern or color scheme in mind. I chose the colors orange and lime green as they match my house colors! And I also chose a fun zig-zag pattern to spice it up a little too.

I made 2 patterns for my long computer cord, with the black box in the middle of it all. It was fun to have 2 ways to decorate.

The first washi tape tutorial:

Cut or tear your washi tape into 1-2 inch strips. Decide on your pattern and wrap it around your cord in small chunks. I used the black cord as part of the pattern!

The second washi tape way:

Wrap your tape around the bottom of the cord and keep looping it around and around until you get to the end of the cord. It will have a diagonal type look.

Note: just be aware some washi tape rolls are a little see-through, so it might show more when the tape is overlapped.
