DIY – Copper Tape Craft

DIY - Copper Tape Craft Title PageDIY – Copper Tape Craft. A couple of quick and easy DIY’s with copper tape to add some bling to your things!

DIY - Copper Tape Craft SuppliesYou will need:

  • Vase. Available at Department Stores, Online or op (thrift) shops.
  • Copper Tape. Available online, your local hardware store or nursery (it’s used to keep snails away from plants!) I paid about $3 for this 5mm x 30m roll.There are various thicknesses and lengths available.

DIY - Copper Tape Craft VaseWrap around randomly, or make a pattern. The tape is smooth on the roll, but when peeled from the backing, ends up with a slight textured finish, as in the photo above. It’s easy to smooth out – just use the back of your fingernail.

DIY - Copper Tape Craft Vase AbovePhoto taken from above. I ‘swirled’ the tape to the top in a random way. Just add water and fill with your favourite blooms and/or leaves.

DIY - Copper Tape Craft NotepadA few days ago I bought this little notepad and again randomly attached the copper tape.

Point to Note:

  • I wrapped around my (fake stone) bathroom soap dispenser with this tape, but before long, it had corrosion marks and green spots, so it had to be removed. Best to avoid taping items that will get wet (just wash the inside of the vase!) or that will be stored in high humidity areas.
  • Copper is conductive – be careful what you are decorating with this copper tape.
