DIY Upcycle: Cable Mural

Cable Mural

Getting Started

Design and personalize a cable mural using the Arrow T25 Low Voltage Wire Staple Gun. Arrow is proud to say that the T25 is made in the USA.

Here’s a unique way to utilize any spare cable wire. Design a simple wall mural and secure the cable to a wood panel. Create a design that fits your personality and style. It could be your favorite city skyline or the silhouette of a furry friend; the possibilities are endless! Appropriate personal protective equipment such as safety goggles, gloves and hearing protection should be worn at all times.
