Crafting with duct tape is the new trend. Have you ever used duct tape to craft?
Well neither have I! The wonderful people at Duct brand sent me this awesome pack for creating a craft project for prom. Duct tape comes in over 140 awesome colors and prints. Wow!
After thinking about what to create for a while. I came up with the idea to use duct tape to turn ordinary accessories into a matching accessories set.
This post is going to be picture heavy. So get ready for it.
Duct tape crafts
All you need is duct tape and scissors to make it duct tape crafts.
The headband, bangle and wallet were simply wrapped with stripes of duct tape.

For making bow earrings and ring, I cut strips of duct tape and folded it. So the sticky part is stuck together. And print is visible on both sides.
I then folded it back and forth like you do for making pinwheels. So I had folds to wrap neat bows. With a little piece of duct tape, I wrapped the center to make the bows. I then glued them onto my ring and earrings with E6000 (strong glue).

I am not a necklace person. So, I didn’t make one. If you like you can glue bows to make a custom necklace too.
So what do you think? Can some duct tape work at the prom? What will you make?

Great accessories, Hani! The pattern really caught my eye.
I haven’t seen that duct tape before. Love it! I love the wallet!
You would not believe how much fun my older children get from making stuff out of duct tape. My 9 year old just made a sword out of popsicle sticks and duct tape all by himself.
I have used duct tape in different crafts, but never in clothing or accessories. These accessories are crazy good, Hani! I didn’t know Duck brand made so many choices.
Okay, seriously? All those things you made with duct tape are SO clever and cute! And how easy with the duct tape. Cute patterns too! Now I’m looking around my house wondering what I can duct tape. 🙂
This is a great idea. I will try this, but a question. Does it come off after a while? Or become sticky / yellow?
It’s great. It has strong sticking properties and tends to bind very easily on any surface. No is hasn’t yellowed on the accessories and a few more things I made with it, I’ll be sharing them this week. 🙂
These r looking so sweet Dear Hani 🙂 …………….. i m 13 years old and i love to make and i will do it as soon as it s posible 😉
I flacking LOVE DIY videos and ideas! They make everyday projects so much more fun and creative
Would you please let me know where you bought your rolls of duct tapes that u posted at the very beginning of your blog?
I love the designs and would prefer to get the tapes from a reliable source.
The duct tapes were sent to me by the duck brand for making prom accessories. However, I have seen these designs in “target”. You should check these out there! Hope this helps!
Really love the rainbow theme
