I still have just a few more Christmas gifts to make this year and then I will undertake the task of delivering them all! But today I wanted to share a really cute idea with you for a simple, quick and inexpensive holiday gift: Merry Christmas Slate Decor
To complete this craft you will need:
- FrogTape Textured Surface
- 12″ x 12″ Slate Tile (about $1 – $1.50 from a hardware store)
- Paint, cream and red (either spray paint or craft paint will work)
- Foam Brush
- Vinyl (optional)*
After you’ve collected your supplies, you will want to begin by cleaning your slate tile. Mine was crazy dirty 🙁 After it is clean, you can paint the entire tile. I spray painted mine Heirloom White, it’s my favorite off-white colors ever!
After the paint was completely dry, I applied my FrogTape® around the tile to create a border. I then wiped the tape with a damp cloth, applied the liquid PaintBlock and waited 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes, you can paint your border. I used a red acrylic craft paint with a foam brush to paint my border. You will need to let it dry (I needed two coats) and then take the tape off of the tile. I was impressed with how clean my border was, especially being on such a textured tile!
I completed my project by cutting a holiday design out of vinyl and applying it to the front of the tile inside of the painted border. However, if you don’t have vinyl, you can used your FrogTape® to create another festive design or sketch out and paint a design of your choosing! The options are truly endless!
I love how my Merry Christmas Slate Tile Board has such a fun textured background, yet my painted border is so clean and pretty thanks to FrogTape® Textured Surface tape! I think it looks really pretty in my home…but I also might make a few of these to give away as holiday gifts this year!
FrogTape® Textured Surface is painters tape specifically formulated to work on textured surfaces! From slate tiles to textured walls, this will help you create clean straight lines without seepage. And I was so very impressed with how well it worked!
I’ll be sharing this idea on Pinterest and you can share your Textured Paint tape ideas as well! Just remember to use hashtag #TexturedSurface! And be sure to check out FrogTape® on twitter @FrogTape for more inspiration!
