My hubby bought me a MacBook about a year ago, and I have been wanting to decorate my keyboard since then. Debating on whether I should use a printable vinyl, or maybe just purchase the decals online, or could use washi tapes etc…
I decided to go with the washi tapes because, in my opinion, it is faster and easier to do. Plus, it’s not permanent, which I prefer because I would like to change the stickers every now and then. So do please keep that in mind that these are not permanent on the keyboard. I wanted to share this tutorial and let me know what you all think.
Here’s a list of the supplies I used:
First, I cleaned the keyboard with an Alcohol pad to remove oil and dirt. Then I just randomly started placing the washi tapes on different keys, and I use my Xacto knife to slice the excess washi tape on both sides. I know that there are washi tapes out there that are tearable. However, these washi tapes has a feel of wax and a slight foil detail on them, which made it difficult for me to tear. Xacto knife was the best tool I could use to do my trimmings.
Once I was done placing the washi tapes on all the keys. I placed the mini alphabet stickers on top of the keys and voila! It’s that easy and it’s super pretty, I just love it!
