Black and White Striped Halloween Wreath

It shouldn’t come as any surprise by now that I love stripes. I LOVE them! I have created a number of striped projects over the years, but the one that I keep coming back to are striped wreaths. I love them! I love having a different striped wreath for each season and holiday. It just feels right! This black and white striped Halloween wreath was meant to happen. Nothing screams Halloween to me more than classic black and white.

How to Create Perfect Stripes on Textured Walls

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of FrogTape Brand Painter’s Tape for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have textured walls all over my house. With my love of stripes and geometric prints, creating those looks with paint can be next to impossible if I want them to be the perfect, fresh lines that look best. Thank goodness for FrogTape® Textured Surface! I painted stripes on my wall and they are seriously perfection.

Before, the wall was a dark brown and was just pretty boring and I knew it needed something more. I decided to add a gorgeous white/gray color to it to create stripes. As you can see, my walls are very textured.

I taped off the stripes I wanted with the FrogTape® and added the liquid to the edge of it.

Let the liquid dry for 15 minutes before painting. So the great thing about this system that FrogTape® has is that it has PaintBlock® Technology that is an absorbent polymer that reacts with paint and instantly gels to form a barrier that seals the edges of the tape. This textured surface liquid is used to push and seal the tape to the wall so that the paint can’t get between the wall and the tape at all.

Next, paint the stripes the desired colors.

Peel off the tape once the paint has dried and you now have a gorgeous striped wall!

I was curious to see how well this system worked so I decided to paint part of a stripe without the FrogTape® on it. Check out how badly the paint bled! Don’t worry, I went back and fixed it.

It is pretty amazing to see how well the FrogTape® works verses their competitor on textured walls.

Now I have a beautiful stripes on a very textured wall!
