DIY EASY UPCYCLING | Upcycled Measuring Tape Sewing Room Wall Decor

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 neat oval plastic mat (I 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.
