Hi everyone! Before I get into this Aluminum Tape Feature Wall project, can I just say how excited I am at how well (I think) this came out? I love wallpaper. If I had my way, every room in the house would have it in some form, shape or way. The thing I don’t like about it though, is the permanency of it and moreover the price! Yes, I know there are temporary wall papers, but as you know, I’m all about designing on a dime! This was definitely a cheaper alternative. This project took me a few hours to do, but in my opinion, it was so worth the time and work!! Here’s how I did this:
Ruler (or straight edge, I used an envelope!)
Aluminum tape – 1/4″ x 72 yards – $8.24 (Amazon.com)
Eraser or Wet paper towel (to correct any mistakes)
1. Begin by lightly outlining your pattern on the wall with the pencil:
-Use the leveler to ensure that your lines are straight.
-If you’re not using a ruler, be sure to mark or note the length on your straight edge so your line lengths are uniform.
-Use the wet paper towel or an eraser to correct any mistakes
2. Once you’ve outlined your pattern, you can then retrace your lines with the aluminum tape.
And that’s it! So, what do you think? Would you try this aluminum foil tape project? If so, what pattern would you use? Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts!
