When the very kind folks at FrogTape® asked it I’d like to try out their new FrogTape Textured Surface tape, I have a feeling they didn’t quite mean this particular very textured surface …
Because, really, this tape is designed for textured walls. And I could have tested it out on my kitchen cabinets – right at the tricky juncture where the tile meets the side of the cabinet – but that would’ve been exceptionally dull …
and not at all festive.
So instead I decided to put tape to the ultimate test. On a ridiculously textured, bumpy surface …
a wreath form. That I first spray painted white.
And I’ll admit, as I was working on this project I was forming a back up plan. Not that I doubted FrogTape® … on the contrary. I doubted myself as I taped off my candy cane design …
Following the instructions on the FrogTape® Textured Surface box, I used a damp cloth along the edges to seal the tape.
Once dry, I applied the liquid edge sealer …
After waiting 15 minutes (okay, I waited a little longer than that for it to dry because I was a little too generous with the liquid sealer) I went ahead and spray painted red …
and held my breath as I anxiously awaited waited for the spray paint to dry. And then peeled off the tape for the reveal …
The perfect candy cane wreath.
Looks like I won’t need my back-up plan after all!

It’s easy. Get it all started with paint delivered to your email inbox:
That’s awesome. I have textured walls, which I detest btw, and I always have to paint over the tape with the contrasting color first… this would make it so much easier to get a crisp line!
Cute wreath, too, Linda!
Oh my gosh this is amazing! I have lightly textured walls and no matter how careful I am I usually get paint bleeding through the tape. I would buy this just for that sealer! Love the wreath. I was so happy you stopped by and said hi. I know you are super busy and it was so good to hear from you. Merry Christmas!
adorable! i love candy cane stripe anything! i have candy cane stripe wrapping paper and i have a candy cane stripe picket on my porch- it’s just a happy design!
This is really cute. I always just use a coat of the base paint over the edge to seal it out. I’ve also used a clear glaze and that worked too. This wreath was probably the perfect guinea pig! I like it. A lot.
