DIY SUNDAY: Cassette Tape Decor

hi everyone, so for this weeks tutorial its all about cassette tapes! I love the look of how retro and funky cassettes are, but they all seem to be pretty boring and colorless. So lets add our own color.
You'll need: Paint, Cassette Tapes, Sharpies, some wall Nails, Tape and a Paint Brush
1: With your tape, tape off an area. Unless you have a really steady hand, and aren't a perfectionist like me!
2: Then paint it with a color of your choice!
3: Continue, with the rest of your cassettes.
4: Next you'll want to paint the backs of your cassettes, that way you can switch the design regularly.
5: With your sharpies, get creative and design what ever the heck you like. i love woodgrain!
Then with your nails, put two directly under and over each cassette. And there you go! sorry for the bad quality photo!
what do you think about red hair? I would get it more on the brown side, but still.
if you make this, let me know in the comments below, I'd love the see pictures!
