Peanut Butter Swirl Ice Pops – For You and Your Dog!

I would suggest either using bright colors and designs like I did for mine, or going with a one-color theme with varying patterns. No matter what you choose, stick with a plain frame so that it doesn’t clash with the tape.

The bright colors and fun shapes of the 50’s and 60’s make for a room that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
