DIY Zebra Print Project

I purchased a silver-plated candlestick at the Salvation Army for $3.50 and gave it a funky makeover with some zebra print Duck brand tape.

I applied the tape in short strips, working from top to bottom.

The wrinkles add an interesting texture.

A glass vase leftover from a Mother's Day arrangement was begging for the "zebra treatment". Again, I added strips of tape working from top to bottom. So easy.
