1. Canvas Art Supplies Required:
Starting with your first colour of tape, place two random strips from one side of the canvas to the other, intersecting in the middle. No need to paint the canvas. Add your second colour of tape in random locations and repeat- the more abstract the better!
Your art is ready to hang on the wall!
2. Utility Storage boxes
Print labels on printer paper with a border from your home computer.
Use Scotch™ Moving and Storage Tape to attach your labels to your clear boxes.
Stack your boxes next to the sofa or chair, to use as a side table. (Designer Tip: Line your clear boxes with left over gift wrap or wall paper.)
3. Stylized DIY Curtains
Lay your curtain panel on a flat surface. Start at the top of the curtain panel and place your first strip of tape on a diagonal to the right outside edge.
Use that first strip of tape as your template for the subsequent pieces.Leave a 4 to 6 inch space and place your second piece of tape in a contrasting or coordinating colour.
Press down all your tape to make sure it is secure. Then, hang your curtain on the curtain rod.
