5 Ways To Decorate With Chigirie
Chigirie Tip: Transform, Repurpose and Embellish
Learn Chigirie with Joan Mead-Matsui
Lampshades, decorative serving trays, wooden boxes, wall art, photos frames, coasters, and other household decor items are the perfect application for Chigirie using washi paper and a special paste.
Get motivated! The holiday season is around the corner. Rather than toss an old wooden trinket box or a lampshade in the trash, transform them into a work of art – YOUR ART.
Chances are you have some items in your home you don’t want to throw out. Are they gathering dust? Packed away and forgotten? Chigirie makes an extraordinary holiday, hostess, or special occasion gift. My Chigirie Tip of the Week shows you where to find those project ideas that are right under your nose.
Find those forgotten items in your home and re-purpose them with Chigirie.
Don’t run to the craft store and spend money just yet. Look around your home for that one item you can re-purpose with Chigirie, Japanese Torn Paper Collage Art. Check out my online shop for ideas.
Go ahead! Give away handmade art. Start now and you’ll have a gift for everyone on your holiday list.

Sift through totes, scan your rooms for that drab piece and add a splash of color. A floral pattern or a simple single rose brightens both your mood and your home when you apply what you’ve learned in my online Learn Chigirie with Joan Mead-Matsui members-only Facebook group.
