It’s no secret that we’re head over heels for those simple moments of beauty in life. A fresh cut flower here, a pair of light-up sunglasses because why not, a photo booth for no apparent reason — you know the deal. So, we were happy to oblige when the folks at Scotch® Brand asked us to share some of our favorite everyday tape hacks.

It’s all part of an exclusive DIY Starter Kit that we teamed up with Scotch® Brand to create to go along with the release of our book, Homemakers. And guess what? YOU can win your very own Homemakers Starter Kit along with a copy of our book! Simply submit your email address below and you’ll be entered to win. The contest runs from March 3 to March 17, and 10 winners will be chosen at random — you can see all terms and conditions here.

This contest is now closed.

Now, from florals to party signs, here are four everyday tape hacks to make life more beautiful.

1. Flower Arrangement Hack: For this little trick, we used Scotch® Magic Tape to create a grid on top of a square vase. You can use this grid to create a flower arrangement if you can’t find floral foam.

2. Affordable Wall Art: Need to fill a few empty walls? In just minutes, you can turn a few canvases or even a piece of cardboard into custom wall art. We combined Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape and Scotch® Patterned Duct Tape to create the patterns you see above.

3. Shoelace Repair: Got a pair of laces with frayed ends? You can use Scotch® Magic Tape or Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape to repair your laces in a jiffy. You can also use this same technique to create your own laces from neon rope if you like :)

4. Custom Party Signage: Lastly, if you’re throwing a party and need a custom sign, all you need is paper, glitter, Scotch® Double-Sided Tape and scissors to make your own. Print the word or name you want to make a sign out of on card stock, then cover that with Scotch® Double-Sided Tape. Cut out the letters and sprinkle glitter on them. After you’ve pressed the glitter firmly onto each letter, use twine to create a garland.

Done and done. Cheers!
