Copper accents have been trending for a few years, and are just as popular this fall as they have been in recent years. I got the idea to play around with some copper foil tape I found online, it’s actually shielding adhesive but I thought it would be fun to craft with it so I ordered a roll from Amazon (also a roll of slightly thicker gold metallic adhesive tape) and got creative with both of them.
I started with an art project. I liked the shimmer created from these tapes so I made one piece of abstract art using the two tapes, simply layering stripes of them in a random pattern. I really like the use of the copper tape on the framed art on the right to enhance the art inside the white frame.
I created a geometric wall treatment too. Using a level I used a pencil to trace the horizontal lines lightly on the wall. I then applied the vertical pieces of copper tape in a random design. I think something similar would look fabulous on a larger scale as an accent wall, or as a detail on the back of a bookcase.
Instead of investing in new copper flatware, how about wrapping a few bands of tape around your existing silverware?
The tapes adhere easily to plain photo boxes or planters, use bands to embellish them too!
