I’ve seen some really cool projects made out of duct tape lately. Who knew duct tape would become a trend? For my Halloween mantel I’m trying to use what I have to make the decor. The only item I had to purchase for this project was the duct tape.
At first I was hoping I had an empty frame with glass to I could try painting some chevrons on. When I searched I found this empty black frame and knew I could make it work in another way. One brainstorm later I realized this could be my opportunity to try out some duct tape art.
I had a piece of cardboard large enough to go inside the frame, but I wanted it white so I spray painted it. Once it was dry I started placing strips of tape, I cut my strips at about 3-4 inches.
Since this is for Halloween I wanted it to be wonky and imperfect. But, if I was going to make one for everyday decor I would measure out the points of my chevrons to make sure they are all even.
Yay for wonky chevrons!
Remember this is a progressive Halloween mantel so here it is so far!
This was a super easy and inexpensive project. I’m also making some duct tape roses to add to the mantel, stay tuned for them!
