DIY Diamond Wall



After seeing this post on one of my favorite blogs, I decided I MUST try it myself.

I’d been looking to add more gold accents somewhere in our master bedroom & Duck tape!?…seemed like the perfect DIY solution.



I first measured out a dummy diamond to make sure I liked the size. I measured at 20 inches down & 10 inches across instead of the 30 x 15 like in this post.

I then proceeded to mark the entire wall with my level every 10 inches across & every 20 down . This was the most time consuming part. I think it took me about three hours total!



I purchased four rolls of gold duck tape at Hobby Lobby for a total of $20 & got to work.

I quickly realized that the 20 x 10 diamonds would be too small. I decided to just connect every other dot as I went along so they would be a bit larger.



For some reason, I have one wonky diamond that you can sort of see behind the night stand on the left. After a total of five hours working up & down a step ladder by myself, I wasn’t about to try to fix it & risk messing up the whole thing! Let’s just pretend it’s perfect, K?

I’m loving the results! The one thing that would make it better? An upholstered headboard. Hmmmmm…


So? What do you guys think? Anyone else using duck tape to decorate?

    • Thanks Melissa!!!

  3. Wow! What a great and different way to make an accent wall!

  4. Found you on YHL…I love the gold! You’ll have to let me know what happens if you ever try to take it off the walls. I’m envisioning a messy clean up, but if that’s not the case, I’m sold and would love to do this in one of my rooms!

  5. I’m glad I found your post! I saw the original one with white as well, but I’m on the fence between doing gold duct tape for a bit larger impact OR Vintage Revival’s sharpie diamond wall in the nursery. I saw another post that said the foil tape shows crinkles and bubbles. That’d be a deal breaker for me. Yours looks totally smooth. Did it bubble at all? Thanks!
