Cover your light switch and outlet covers with duck tape for a fun new look! An easy DIY craft tutorial idea where all you need is a little Duck Tape. This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Duck Brand. All opinions are 100% mine.
Spring is here, and I don’t know about you, but in the springtime, I get the itch to clean, organize and make everything pretty. We recently repainted my daughter’s room white. I like the white because it makes the room feel bigger and clean. BUT, it also doesn’t have a lot of personality.
We are hoping to move soon so I wanted to do something simple in the room that would make it fun and a little bit more girly. How about the light switch and outlet covers?!

Duck Tape sent me so many fun types of tape to play with.
I especially love the glitter tape and decided that would be perfect for my light switch covers.
How to Make Duck Tape Light Switch Covers
To cover the entire light switch you will need three strips of Duck Tape. I will use two strips of pink and a strip of silver for the middle.
Begin by laying the first strip of tape at the bottom of the cover. Make sure to line the edge of the tape up with the bottom edge of the cover.
In both corners, cut a small diagonal slit into the duck tape where the corner of the cover is.
The slit makes is you can easily wrap the Duck Tape around the corners of the cover.
Add another pink strip of Duck Tape to the top, aligning the edges and wrapping the corners the same as above.
Lay the center strip of tape down, centering between the top and bottom pieces.
When the front is nicely covered it is time to remove the extra. Using a craft knife, cut along the edges of the cover.
With the cover face down, cut out the rectangle for the light switch.
Finally, used an awl and poked through the screw holes.
All done. Pretty easy, right?
I finished all of the covers using the same method as stated above. They really do come together really quickly and are so cute too!
I screwed them back into place and I am all done. Ta – dah!
