crafting with tape is just one of the many uses of tape

Use Tape to Decorate Your Home

One of the many uses of tape include creating DIY home decor. Have you been thinking about decorating your wall to add a bit of character or reflect your personality? Most people will think of using wall paints or family photos to achieve this. But did you know you can use decorative tape to add a bit of color to your home?

Yes, if you search online, you’ll find a variety of tapes you can use for this purpose. These tapes come in different colors and patterns, making adding wall art to your home easy. Further, most decorative tapes won’t harm your walls, so you don’t have to worry about repainting your wall if you decide to remove them.

Protect Sensitive Surfaces from Damage

Another of the many uses of tape is to protect surfaces, such as appliances, from getting dust or contacting anything that can lower its quality.

For instance, let’s say you want to do a paint job on a device or paint it. If you’d like to protect certain areas such as the handles and hinges from getting painted, you can either use paper or tape. Tape is the most effective option because it won’t come off too easily as you are painting once it sticks to the surface.

You can also use tape to create patterns, especially when painting a wall. Simply use the tape to create a design and then paint right over it. Once the paint completely dries, remove the tape and there is your pattern!

Use Tape for Creating Puzzles and Mazes

It’s winter. Your children can’t go out to play in the cold weather. To make matters even worse, you don’t have a huge space for your children to play in your home. So, you decide to be creative and build a small playground for them.

This is another of the many uses of tape. I saw this the other day on Pinterest, and it was quite fascinating how parents create huge mazes and puzzles that keep their children busy for hours using masking tape. Plus, the tape is removable, so cleanup is a cinch!

Protect Your Feet From Blister

This one is for athletes. Blisters emerge on our feet because of heat, friction, and moisture. If you wear a shoe that tightly fits on your feet, you are likely going to get blisters. One way to prevent these painful blisters is by using, you guessed it, duct tape.

When it comes to preventing blisters, duct tape works wonders. In fact, some experts prefer tape to bandages. Simply place the tape on any area that feels like it has a hot spot or is burning. Be sure to dry the area first. And never place it on open wounds, as it can slow down the healing process.

Bring Your Garden to Life

If you love gardening, you know you need to keep it organized so that you know which plant is which. An easy way to do so? Use the tape to mark areas where you’re growing specific plants or herbs.

Want to add some more color to a container garden? You can also use the tape to create and decorate inspiring plant holders.

Squeeze Out Toothpaste from the Bottom of the Tube

Let’s be honest. We’ve all been there at least once when you have a small amount of toothpaste left in the house. Most of us won’t let the little amount left go to waste. But squeezing it out can be a huge task.

That’s where one of the many uses of tape comes in. Roll some tape around the tube sturdily, and you’ll see how easy things will squeeze/turn out.

Final Thoughts on the Many Uses of Tape

That’s it for today. We hope you’ve seen how versatile tape – regardless of what type it is – can be. So, don’t limit your tape to fixing exposed cables and broken plastics. Explore the many uses of tape and get creative and crafty!
