Frugal Friday - printed duct tape

The other day while checking out the dollar section of Target I came across printed duct tape for $1.00. I usually see it for at least $3.99, that role is bigger than the dollar roll I picked up, but the dollar roll was perfect for a little home project. I covered this red chevron L with quite a bit to spare. Nice!!

Here are my supplies: The $1.00 printed duct tape and a cardboard L that I had bought over a year ago at Micheal's. Honestly I can't remember the price but I know I wouldn't have paid more than a few dollars for it.

I cut the chevron tape and made sure to wrap it around the sides and line it up so that the pattern matched all over. It was so simple to do because the duct tape is so strong, it creates great lines.

Here is the finished product on a book shelf in my living room. The whole thing took me less than 10 minutes to complete. This little project was simple and the results are making me so happy!! I have seen these chevron letters upwards of $20.00! I recommend you pick some today, you can cover just about anything in duct tape!
