D I Y / Duct Tape Christmas Tree

Photobucketmaking a gif

All you will need for this no-fuss DIY Christmas tree is a roll of narrow black duckt tape, some Christmas lights and 15 minutes.
I was going to write a couple of words with instrutions, how great this is for those who don't have time, for students... but it's so simple that there isn't that much to say. Good luck taping lights to your wall!

i just love this clever idea!
thin black duct tape works very well; alternately, silver would be quite festive.

Sóley said...

The cat makes the whole thing just perfect.
+ it's a really neat idea, for example, I'm living abroad right now, going home for Christmas AND living on the 5th floor with no elevator so there's no way in hell I'd buy myself an actual Christmas tree, but I still love the lights... I might try something similar.

At Anonymous,
Good question, initially I wanted to do this on a wall covered with wallpaper but didn´t want to take the risk. On these painted bricks it works just fine, and the paint doesn´t stick to the duct tape.

You're DIY-projects are always great, unique and inspirational!

sandy said...

haven't searched anything, but this is perfect!
think i'll do this tomorrow somewhere in my crib.
thanks, you're awesome, like your blog!
