    Everything in this slideshow

    • Get It on Tape

      Tape has transcended from its traditional role as a quick-fix solution to a fashion forward way to add affordable personality to common items around the house. Now available in cool patterns and terrific hues, the possibilities are endless.

    • Reuse, Rethink, Recraft

      Recycle a smooth glass bottle that formerly held your flavored tea or iced coffee. Cover the bottle with thick strips of colored tape, then layer thinner strips in complementary hues.

    • Think Outside the Box

      Add a stripe of style to a cute box for instant glamour. Try mixing a patterned strip of tape on top of a patterned box, seen here on the black and white box, for a fun, quirky look.

    • Note-Worthy Style

      Keep important items at hand with a one-of-a-kind clothespin. One strip of colorful tape adds immediate style. Clothespins are great for hanging notes or using as labels on boxes and bins. Tape adds color and pattern to an otherwise boring object.

    • Schooled in Style

      Spice up boring notebooks with decorative tape. Here, a spare notebook is decorated in a plaid pattern. For a personalized look, tape magazine clippings, concert tickets, or other special cutouts to the cover.

    • Too-Cute Tags

      Create custom gift labels with sale tags sassed up with tape strips. Choose tape colors for the occasion: red and green for the holiday season, pink and blue for a baby shower, or bright polka dots for a birthday.

    • Creative Containers

      Cheap crafts stores boxes get an update with a bold striped design. This cute container is perfect for corralling essentials.

    • Fast Frame Fix

      Give a plain white frame a facelift by wrapping tape around the edges. Fun patterns give a plain frame design-worthy appeal.

    • No Plain-Jane Planters

      Give boring plastic pots instant personality with tape torn and attached to their surfaces. Here, tape in a variety of green hues and patterns mimics sprouting greenery.
