Light Switch Covers
We love making handmade gifts around here and these light switch covers are a fun gift. Have your child check out their friend’s room on the sly to know if they need a light switch cover for one, two or more switch openings. Also, have them notice the colors of their friend’s room so you can get the perfect colors of washi tape to match. Light switch covers get a good deal of wear so a coat Mod Podge for durability is a good idea. My friend Amy, will tell you what is Mod Podge! She is an expert!
