Remember that fabulous navy and white chevron tray I made?
I knew you would.
It was just so simple and fabulous that I couldn’t keep myself from putting some chevron love into my Halloween decor.
Yep, I made a chevron witch hat with my beloved FrogTape Chevron Shape Tape.
Just like my chevron tray, this was so simple! I started with this cardboard witch’s hat I picked up at a local craft store for a few bucks.
Before putting on any shape tape, I spray painted the entire hat glossy black, then pulled out my chevron shape tape and got to work.
To get the round, contoured cut on the tape where the cone meets the hat brim, I cut lightly with an X-Acto blade. And just like with my chevron tray, I used a small piece of the tape to measure the distance between where I applied the tape. After all the tape was where I wanted it, I made sure to press it down hard and remove any air bubbles, so there was a secure seal. Shape Tape is just like regular FrogTape, it has the PaintBlock® Technology that forms a barrier to keep the paint from bleeding!
This is what I came up with:
I took it out to the garage and gave it coat of orange spray paint. Right after I gave it a coat of spray paint, I threw some orange glitter (throw some glitter, make it rain!) on it, to accentuate that fabulous chevron effect.
I let it sit for 5 minutes or so and then pulled off the tape.
The base looked fabulous, however, I didn’t like how I had positioned the shape tape on the cone, so I taped off the base and sprayed the entire cone orange and added glitter to it.
And then, I had this fabulous end result:
Oh, ye, of little faith. He was pretty impressed. I don’t know if he has figured out about the shape tape yet and just how easy that makes projects. Maybe I won’t tell him just yet….It’s good to be queen.
And because I love me some chevron so much, I just had to do a chevron pumpkin:

Oh, and did I mention it comes not only in the chevron pattern, but in a wave and scallop pattern as well?
Watch out, world.
