Frog Tape® was kind enough to sponsor this post and gift me some of their new amazing Shape Tape™ to do my crafty thing with. All opinions are mine alone. Check out what I made!! Two Easy DIY masking tape projects | | #diy #ShapeTape Alright, so I originally only intended to do one craft with the FrogTape’s Shape Tape. But it turned out really well and went really quick so I ended up doing another just because. Let’s start with the mirror Jar.

What You Need

  • Frog Tape® Shape Tape™ in whatever pattern you want (they have Chevrons, Scallops and waves! Frog Tape® Shape Tape™
  • Glass Jar or vase.
  • Mirror paint or silver craft paint.

How To Make It:

  1. Clean your glass well with alcohol to get any finger oils off of it. Then apply your Shape Tape™ wherever you think it looks best.

  2. Be sure to mask off any parts of your project that you don’t want painted. Easy DIY Scalloped Mirror Jar | | #dit #ShapeTape #decor
  3. Spray or sponge paint the exposed area. I used a neat mirror paint product I had laying around. All Frog Tape® had PaintBlock which is an element that reacts with latex paint to make a good seal and keep paint from leaking under the tape. I’m not sure if it works with the type of paint I used, but I was pleased to see a nice crisp line when I pulled the paint off!
  4. Viola! That’s it. All in all it only took me a minute or two. That’s when I decided I wanted to try another craft with this awesome tape! Easy DIY Scalloped Mirror Jar | | #dit #ShapeTape #decor

I recently bought a plain jane tshirt from a thrift store and it was itching for a makeover. After my first craft with the Shape Tape™ I had a great idea for what to do. A little tape, a littel glitter fabric paint and I have an understated but upcycled top.

What You Need

  • Frog Tape® Shape Tape™
  • T-Shirt
  • Fabric Paint and applicator sponge

How To Make It

  1. Wash your shirt and dry without softener. We want the fabric raw and ready for paint. Quick and easy Tshirt upcycle with masking tape | | #diy #ShapeTape #fashion
  2. Use the tape to make your design. Be sure to put something inside the shirt to prevent color bleeding to the back. Quick and easy Tshirt upcycle with masking tape | | #diy #ShapeTape #fashion

Overall I loved the Scalloped tape and I can’t wait to think of more things to do with it. The PaintBlock technology seems like a great addition, and even without latex paint I was pleased at the clean lines I was able to get.
