To keep my fall centerpiece anchored, I created a chevron centerpiece base using FrogTape® Shape Tape and scrap wood.
- FrogTape® Chevron Shape Tape
- scrap wood (mine is left over from a shelving project and measures approx. 12 x 35 x 1 in.)
- white paint (I used left over Glidden toasted white)
- Martha Stewart stain
- foam roller
- small paint brush
DIY Chevron Centerpiece Base Tutorial:
1. Place Shape Tape onto board. I started at an area near the middle (to be able to paint over a pen line on my scrap wood) and worked my way out. I used an extra piece of Shape Tape to measure the distance between sticky pieces of chevron tape.
2. Peel off half of the backing, place Shape Tape. Press down. Remove the other half of the paper backing and smooth into place.
3. Go over each border of the Shape Tape with thumbnail.
4. Dip foam roller into paint, coat the entire roller by rolling on a paper towel then paint over the bare chevron spaces in the direction of the wood grain. I wanted a worn/distressed look so I only did one coat.
5. While paint was still wet, I carefully removed the Shape Tape then let the paint dry.
6. Next I brushed on Martha Stewart stain and wiped it off.
7. Let dry. I didn’t, but you may also want to seal your project with a clear coat.
Now my fall centerpiece is all grouped together and doesn’t feel so lost.
I love how this turned out. Great for any decorating, any vignette, may be repurposed as a shelf, tray (great for sitting on an upholstered ottoman), or DIY sign in the future. 😉
