Washi Tape Light Switch

Wanna add some color in your house? Why not style your light switches! We have several of these boring white light switches in our apartment and making a washi tape light switch will add some excitement to our light interior!

To do this you need your favorite washi tape and a flat-blade screwdriver. Now, the light switches in Norway might be a bit different than the ones you have where you live. First use your thumb and pointing finger to pull off the centre piece (button) of the switch.

Use the flat-blade screwdriver and bend the frame open on both sides. Add the tape either to the frame, the button or both. Be thorough when you apply the tape if you want the pattern to be the same all over the switch.

This is fun! On the one beneath I’ve taped only the button.
