Today I'm decorating some light switch covers. For the first one I used Wide Flower Washi Tape.
It's easiest if you start by centering your first piece in the middle of the plate. I used my Tim Holtz Retractable Knife to trim the switch opening from the back and folding it back along the edges.
I overlapped each edge, and then folded around the back. I then attached small strips of packing tape to make sure the Washi stay attached to the back.
For the next one I used three different tapes - Green Owl Washi Tape, Foil Washi Tape - Green/ Gold Dots, Foil Washi Tape - Green/Gold Stripes.
Again, I started in the middle and worked my way up and down the plate, repeating the patterns.
With all of the Washi Tape varieties at Eyelet Outlet, the possibilities are endless.
- Wide Flower Washi Tape
- Green Owl Washi Tape
- Foil Washi Tape - Green/Gold Dots
- Foil Washi Tape - Green/Gold Stripes
Did you know we have a Pinterest Board to showcase Eyelet Outlet Design Team Creations?
Never would I have thought to decorate switch covers with washi tape! What a quick and easy way to brighten up a room! Heck, you could change them every season! Great idea!ReplyDelete

Fun. I think I may do this.ReplyDelete
