EASY! DIY Light Switch Cover Overhaul at The Art Kit Blog

Did you see our post on overhauling light switch plates with glitter tape? We received so much positive feedback on that post that we thought we’d share our washi tape version too! What’s great about washi tape is that it is available in numerous different colors, patterns, and prints, which makes it so easy to customize the look of your light switch cover to match the decor in your home.

What You’ll Need:

 

What To Do:

Remove the light switch cover from the wall. Quick tip: You may need to score the wall where it meets the light switch cover to prevent peeling paint.

Trim the excess tape from the middle, leaving about 1/4″ to wrap behind. Quick tip: Cut diagonal lines in the tape to allow for smooth folds.

Once the light switch cover has been covered completely and edges trimmed and tucked behind, screw it back on to the wall. Quick tip: Don’t tighten the screws too tight or it may tear the washi tape.
