And you should, too! Here’s how I did it! 

Well, I started with my plain light covers…..many of them in a 1-bedroom apartment!

And that’s boring! So….Washi Tape to the rescue!

I collect ’em when they’re on sale!! 

I have lots of Christmas and Valentine’s Day themed ones, too…but those stayed on the shelf for this particular project 🙂

And so I went to town!! Grab your flat head screwdriver and take the plates off of the wall. Then you get the Washi Tape and just stick ’em on where you want ’em…and fold them over the back! You can see that I used shorter strips over the switch rectangles. And it’s Washi Tape…so it’s super easy to reposition it!

If you want to go diagonal over a switch rectangle, you just have to cut diagonally into the corners and fold it down! Like so…

Here are my completed works!

And here they are in their natural environment. Much cheerier than they were this morning, that’s for sure!

Watch for when Washi Tape goes on sale, and start building up your stock!
