Sure, tape is a household necessity, but are you using it for everything it can do? These impressive tape projects will have you running to the store for more.
Keep Your Hinges Paint-Free
Getting those clean lines is essential to a good paint job. If you don't want to take your door off its hinges, cover it with painter's tape and cut around the hinge with an X-Acto knife. Ugly Duckling House will show you how.
Set Up A Summer Play Zone
If it's too hot outside for the kids to play in the back yard, keep 'em active and healthy with these cute playtime ideas from Jamie at Hands on as We Grow. She thought up five different activities for toddlers using just painter's tape!
Print Onto Tape For A Makeshift Label
First, print what you want to say on a regular sheet of paper to position where to put the tape. Then place a piece of tape over it, and re-print the same document on the same sheet of paper.
Stick your new tape labels on any household item you desire. Who needs a label maker anyway? Get the full DIY from Kate's Creative Space.
Get Creative With Wires
Wires don't have to be an eyesore. Use green washi or duct tape to cut out "leaves," which will adorn the "vine" that is your wire. Plus, this keeps your wires organized, as Your Home is Lovely explains.
Craft A Water Bottle Holder
On a day of shop-til-you-drop store hopping, there's nothing more annoying than holding a water bottle the whole time. These cute duct tape water bottle holders from There's Just One Mommy will keep your bottle out of your purse and out of your way.
Those new shoes are so cute, but they're also not broken in. That doesn't mean you can't wear them! Protect your feet from blisters by applying duct tape to areas you think will chafe and chap.
Paint A Pillow
If the store just doesn't have the pillow you're looking for, paint it yourself! This striped pattern from The Crafting Chicks starts with a white pillow cover, painter's tape and paint to creative the perfect plush place to lay your head.
Once the paint is dry, lift the tape off for sharp lines and an even sharper-looking pillow. Just add a pillow insert and you're in business!
Quick And Stylish Phone Case
Does your phone need an upgrade? Don't run to the store. Run to your junk drawer! Colored duct tape makes the perfect phone case makeover, and I Spy DIY will show you how to get the perfect look for you.
Use washi or electric tape to create an outline for a faux headboard that will add a little extra oomph to your room.
