DIY EASY UPCYCLING | Upcycled Measuring Tape Sewing Room Wall Decor

Wednesday, August 19, 2015

This upcycling craft is for all my fellow seamstresses out there, to spruce up your sewing space.


I hope you save your old measuring tapes because you're going to need a couple.

You'll also need:

  • A frame
  • A piece of card stock that fits your frame
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun or super glue


All you're doing is arranging the measuring tapes on the card stock in any way you want. I happened to have this frame I found at the thrift store, with a cool oval plastic mat (spray painted it red). Other shapes would be really cute too, like a heart.



I used the oval mat as a stencil on the paper, cut the measuring tapes (3 of them) to fit and glued them horizontally in a repeating pattern. Once it was done, then just placed it in the frame.




If you don't want to make wall decor, consider one of these measuring tape upcycles:
