DIY with Trimaco (Tri DIY with us!)

Let’s face it, Thanksgiving is one of the more challenging holidays to decorate for. It is sandwiched between two of the most festive holidays (Halloween and Christmas) and most people are focused on the delicious spread of food. Add some spark in your Thanksgiving décor with this simple, yet fun Thanksgiving Banner:

Materials needed:

DIY Thanksgiving Banners first steps

Directions:

  1. First gather your materials and lay down a Trimaco Stay Put Canvas Plus Drop Cloth to contain mess and provide an easy clean up.
  2. Roll out roughly 1-2 yard of Trimaco’s X-Paper and measure out individual banner pieces (make sure you have enough for whatever saying you desire, and a few extras if you want to add a few image pieces). We made our rectangular pieces, like the stencil shape- but feel free to get creative!
  3. Cut the measured pieces and set aside.
  4. Punch two holes in the top of each banner piece in order to thread the twine and hang your banner later.
  5. Next, tape down the letter and image stencils using Trimaco’s KleenEdge Low Tack Tape to each individual banner piece.
  6. Lightly paint over the stencils with a color of your choosing. For lighter colors, two coats may be needed.
  7. Remove the stencils and let dry.
  8. Once dry, thread the twine through the banner pieces in the correct order.
  9. Hang you Thanksgiving banner over a fireplace, in the kitchen or in the dining room and enjoy!

One of the biggest struggles when it comes to protecting bathrooms during a renovation or remodel is protecting the bathtub. At an average of $2,000, bathtubs are an expensive feature and must be protected while other work occurs in the bathroom. Whether you’re painting, plumbing, tile installing or remodeling the bathroom, it will save you time, money and your reputation in the long run to protect the bathtub right off the bat.-The Stay Put Surface Protector features a slip resistant tacky backing which will adhere easily without tape! This surface protector is repositionable and forms easily to the curves and angles of a bathtub. Once it’s pulled up, you’ll be happy to find zero residue left behind. It’s also padded to provide protection against impact from your jobsite materials. Water, paint and other liquids don’t stand a chance leaking through this waterproof surface protector.-Thanks to Nicholas Construction for using StayPut Surface Protection for their bathtubs! ...
