Wood Peppermint Stick Tutorial

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of FrogTape provided by ShurTech Brands, LLC for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am so delighted and surprised with how great this project worked out!! With the help of FrogTape Textured Surface, our Candy Cane Peppermint Stripes are PERFECT!!

For this project you will need:

Wood stakes (any size you like)

FrogTape® Textured Surface

White paint (We used exterior)

Red paint (We used apple red spray paint)

pencil and ruler

Paint your wood stakes white.

Once they are painted and dry, you will need to used your ruler and pencil to measure and mark where you would like the stripes to go.  Once your stakes are complelty dried, it’s time to get out the FrogTape®.  This is the How To Use FrogTape® part of the tutorial.

Cut strips of the tape and carefully apply on the measured marks you left on the stakes.

After your strips are placed on the stakes, you will need to rub a damp cloth over the strips of tape firmly. The tape is pretreated with PaintBlock® and this will activiate it to help ensure a good seal.

To apply the PaintBlock® Edge Sealer first, shake the bottle, then remove the top and foil. Make sure you keep all the tops. Attach the brush applicater tightly to the bottle. Apply the sealer with the brush generously over the edges you want to seal.

Once you are done applying the PaintBlock®, wash and clean the brush right away, then cover the sealer.

Allow the edge sealer to dry for 15 mintues before painting.

Once paint is dry to the touch you can remove the strips.

Can you see how FLAWLESS that line is!?? I was so surprised by how perfectly sharp the lines are. AMAZING right?

Here you can see the texture in the wood stakes before I removed the strips.

And the perfect, sharp edges made by the tape right over the texture!

PERFECT!!!!

Here is how our awesome new Peppermint Candy Sticks look in our yard!

What do y’all think? Didn’t it come out great!? I think they would made great sticks for holiday lollipops, too!

Fun Holiday Packages and Decor with EZ Start®

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Duck Brand provided by ShurTech Brands, LLC for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I know that there are a ton of you out there that are sending packaged gifts to loved ones this holiday season. Wouldn’t it be nice to dress up those special parcels and give them a little holiday touch?

EZ Start Printed Packaging Tape has two nice holiday designs. The pretty printed tape would make any package look wonderful.

I decided to have some fun with my tape. My sister and I had so many crafty ideas. Her 7 year old daughter came up with the winning idea.

A Holiday Cookie Jar!!

Isn’t it so cute? I think it came out great and it was so easy to create! The trickiest part was the top.

I cut the tape around the corners and was able to fold it on to each other. Then I trimmed the excess tape.

After I made the cookie jar I decided to make a cute little matching banner.

It’s super cute and really easy to make!

I cut a strip about 3 inches long. Placed yarn in the middle of the strip on to the sticky side. CAREFULLY fold the strip in half sticky side to sticky side, over the yarn creating a double sided banner. I then made a small paper template to cut the banners. And VIOLA, a new cute holiday banner.

And then of course you can decorate your presents, packages and shipping packages with the tape.

Here are all the wonderful Holiday projects I created with the EZ Start® Printed Packaging Tape.
