Run out of hanging space on your refrigerator? Looking for an easy, affordable, and low impact framing solution for your kids’ masterpieces? Try framing artwork in blue painter’s tape. It leaves your walls intact, but placed all the way around any piece of artwork, makes any creation look great. Even better, it doesn’t require a single tool to use and the vibrant color gives artwork extra pizazz. Size doesn’t matter either, since you can simply size the tape to fit.

I somehow never manage to go digging for tools like nails and hammers with kids around, and hate banging on the walls when they sleep because I value the quiet. The blue tape method makes very little noise.

This kind of tape sticks to just about any surface, from plaster to wallpaper to wood paneling, yet it leaves no residue on the walls or the art when removed. It also comes off cleanly, meaning all your paint stays on the wall and none stays on the tape.

For the best result, line up the edges of the tape evenly, or fold the extra down over to make a straight edge. But even without the extra effort, it sets off the artwork nicely.

I also like the ability to stick artwork up in almost any place, where a shelf or string display don’t make sense. I personally prefer the roughly one inch widths but it doesn’t make a huge difference what size tape you use. Whatever you have on hand should work just fine. You can also opt for green tape if you prefer a different color.
