Materials

  • A small container of Spackle
  • a putty knife
  • paint
  • small paint brush
  • plastic knife
  • towel
  • water
  • a sanding brick

Steps

1. Mix your spackle till it's smooth

2. Put a little on the corner of the putty knife

3. Fill in the holes, using a little pressure, if it gets on the wall around the hole you can wipe it off with a damp towel but make sure not to touch the hole

4. Depending on the size of the hole you may have to redo steps 2 and 3 a few times, read the container of spackle to find out how long to let it dry

5. Once the spackle is completely dry, sand it lightly to blend the spackle in, but don't over sand it

6. With the plastic knife, mix up the paint till its smooth and has good color

7. You can use your plastic knife instead of carrying the paint can around, but put little amounts of paint on the small paint brush and lightly dab the repair, and depending on the color it may take a few coats to look like the paint around it
