Chevron is one of my favorite patterns to paint on my door hangers and DIY projects. I love chevron but chevron is not a big fan of me. I tried to paint them free hand. Let’s just say the results were not pretty. There is something about the angles that I can’t get right. I was never good at geometry in high school. Next, I tried to take my favorite Scotch Painters Tape and make my own chevron pattern. No matter what I did, the pattern never lined up. So I racked my brain, searched online, and finally, I came across Chevron Painters Tape by Frog Tape. Girl, can we say game changer.
I use this chevron painters tape on a lot of my signs that have a chevron pattern now. I love the dimension that it adds to my Math Door Hanger. Check out the time-lapse video made of me making my Math Door Hanger.
Here are the pros and cons I have found since using the chevron tape:
- It’s a definite time saver. It’s super easy to place the tape on my sign and paint the pattern. That means there's no more guessing about whether the pattern lines up.
- Whenever I use this tape I always end up with super sharp lines on my project.
- There is no sticky residue.
- One roll goes a long way.because the tape is reusable on multiple projects.
- It’s a little on the pricey side. This is my opinion. You have to gauge if the headache in making your own chevron is worth the price. One way to account for that cost is to reuse the tape on multiple projects.
