Hi friends! I recently got an order in the mail and the boxes had a plastic binding around them. I though that this thin, light and sturdy materiel would make a great bracelet form. Then I remembered my box of pretty duct tape and made bracelets!
It is pretty affordable too, you just need a 11″ long strip of tape to make 2 bracelets. I think this would be a great camp or classroom craft. Feel free to share this idea with friends or teachers! Watch this video to see how to make these.
1. Cut the plastic strapping to 10″ length.
2. Cut duct tape to 11″ lengths and then cut down the center so you have 2 1″x11″ strips. You can make 2 bracelets from this.
3. Flip over the tape and center the strapping on. Trim the excess tape from one end and cut slits in the tape on the other end where the strapping ends.
4. Fold the tape around the back of the strapping. Then form the strip into a circle that will fit over your wrist and secure with the sticky end. Take the piece you trimmed off and stick down the loose end on the inside of the bracelet.
You can use a shorter piece of strapping to make a ring too!
Any brand of duct tape will work for this project, even the stuff from the dollar store. Have a great night and til next time happy crafting!
