If you’re anything like me, your light switch covers might look a little…well…worse for the wear. It’s amazing how much dirt and grime accumulates on our light switches and outlet covers just by touching them! True, you could clean them, but it’s only a matter of time before dirty fingerprints make their way back on your backings…again. Instead of waging a cleaning war, why don’t you make them a little more colorful? These ideas are sure to get you inspired!
Pink polka dots would look terrific in any craft room or bathroom! Use washi tape to create this look, or use acrylic craft paint to paint on the dots.
This outlet cover isn’t exactly easy to do…it will require a LOT of hand sketching. But it you have the design capabilities, you can make any dingy light switch look great! Use sharpies for the cleanest lines!
Change the design of all outlet covers in a room with just one thing: washi tape. If you look closely, you can see that each of these covers have bits and pieces of another cover in them. Washi tape is easy to work with (and trim) for craft projects like these.
Brighten up a room and give it a funky pattern with a washi tape designed light switch cover. Make them in a variety of different colors and place them all in various rooms. Or, you can purchase these on Etsy, instead!
If you are handy with a paint brush, and art in general, this cherry blossomed light switch cover makes a sweet statement in any room of the house. Isn’t it like spring year round?
A little glitter goes a long way in terms of room decor! Keep things chic and simple with glittery light covers. This blogger used strips of duct tape and it turned out great!
Bring an underwater feeling to any room of the home with a cover like this. You could attempt to paint this, but I think you may be better off purchasing it online, instead! I mean, it would be hard to recreate texture like this!
Just the thing for a nursery! This octopus is here to remind kiddos to turn off the light!
