Fill in Second Wall Section

For the second wall section, the tape will be place in an upwards diagonal. Start the stripes in between the ends of the stripes in the first section. Starting slightly over the first pencil line, stick a tape stripe on the wall. Rip the tape off at the second vertical pencil line — these tape edges will be cleaned up later.

Continue with remaining wall sections, alternating upwards and downwards diagonal tape stripes.

Clean Up Edges and Enjoy

Clean up the edges of the tape along the pencil lines by cutting the tape vertically along the pencil line. Erase visible pencil lines.

Then, sit back and enjoy your new wall art!
