If you have $4 and a knack for DIYs, you can do this easy decor hack. A genius viral TikTok is making the rounds, giving people a new way to decorate their walls without wallpaper or paint. The simple, removable trick will leave you with a luxe home look for mere pennies.
The tutorial in question, created by TikTok user @gabbydancerwoodle, shows her personal wall decor, which is an arrow-like black and white pattern. As she explains in the TikTok, Gabby actually created the “wallpaper” using electrical tape. She simply marked out a pattern, cut the tape and placed down the pieces at an angle.
The TikTok has been ‘liked’ more than 109,000 times, providing an inexpensive way to decorate a wall. Plus, electrical tape is easy to remove and won’t damage your walls, making it perfect for a temporary look and super easy to fix if you mess up.
A roll of vinyl electrical tape is less than $4 at retailers like Home Depot, making the decor hack super budget-friendly. And while you may only be used to black electrical tape, brands actually sell vinyl tape in every color of the rainbow. Finding a shade to match your home decor is virtually guaranteed.
As long as the pattern you choose is created using lines, you can recreate it with electrical tape on your wall. Check out some of the inexpensive options below and dream up your own patterned decor.
