Duct Tape Switch Plate

  • Duct tape„White, black (for the sheep), yellow (for the Starry Night) duct tape
  • Waxed or parchment paper
  • Craft knife
  • Permanent marker

Instructions

  1. Background Color:: First remove a light-switch plate from the wall and cover it with duct tape, folding the ends onto the back. Use a craft knife to cut an X in the center slot, then press the flaps against the back of the plate.

  2. Sleepy Sheep:: Stick white and black duct tape onto waxed or parchment paper. Turn over the paper and use a permanent marker to draw the shapes shown at right, then cut them out. Peel away the paper and assemble the sheep as shown above.

  3. Starry Night:: Stick strips of white and yellow duct tape onto waxed or parchment paper. Turn over the paper and use a permanent marker to draw stars and a moon. Cut out the shapes, then peel away the paper and stick them on the switch plate. (reserved 2 stars for covering up the screws after put the switch plate back on the wall.)
