diy glue dots and more

Here are two great ideas I found for sticking things to your wall without damaging your paint.

1. DIY Glue Dots
I love glue dots, however they are crazy expensive. Turns out you can make your own! Aleene’s Tack-it Over and Over glue and wax paper. Just squeeze out the glue in desired size on a piece of wax paper and press another over the top of it. Let it set for at least two hours, preferably over night. Video showing how to make glue dots can be found by clicking here.

Alternatives to wax paper are saving old rolls from your current pack of glue dots, the strips you pull off of priority mail boxes, self-seal envelopes, back side of contact paper and I’m sure the list does not end there, just all I can think of so far!

2. Blue Painter’s Tape and Double-sided Tape or Hot Glue.
No more avoiding hanging posters because you are afraid of damaging your wall  First apply blue painter’s tape on your wall and then put double-sided tape over the top of that, and hang your poster! When you are done with the poster or want a change you don’t have to worry about the tape removing paint from your wall or leaving holes with tacks! Even better, use your home-made glue dots on the painter’s tape!
