More Frugal Tips /My Royal Kitchen/Craft & DIY /RedCarpetMamas
It's finally Spring time! That means time to clean out the closets and for me it means time to start doing so DIYs!! I always get the urge to start crafting and creating things when Spring Fever hits.
I was sent some ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape …and my creative wheels started turning! I had this large board that I made for Valentine's day, the other side says Love, but I wanted to make a Spring time design to cheer up my porch! I was able to make this decorative sign in under an hour, and I used supplies I already had at home!
First paint the wood board or leave it wooden. This huge wood board only costs about $8 at the hardware store. If you decide to paint the board, let it cure for at least 24 hrs before you add the tape.
Decide what design you want on your board and what colors.I used 1 inch wide tape. I love this herringbone pattern and the cool colors I used. I didn't measure because I like the imperfect look, but if you want it precise I suggest measure and marking your board before taping it off.
Taping it only took about 5 minutes. I did 3 long pieces down the length of the board and then added the zig zag. Press down on the tape to make sure the edges are sealed against the wood, this will keep the paint from bleeding under the tape.
You can either paint in a pattern or go random. I had my daughter help me paint, so we went random! It's ok for the paint to get on the tape.
Let completely dry, peel off the tape and check out you nice straight lines!
