Welcome to the new crafting era of… duct tape! You read that right, duct tape. Once only pulled out for quick fix home improvement projects, duct tape is suddenly a trendy tool that’s popping up in lots of craft projects. The tape comes in a variety of colors and patterns — we’re talking leopard print and tye-dye! — and can be used to make bracelets, rings, redesign wallets and refurbish backpacks.
We’re particularly digging the duct tape friendship bracelets we’ve been seeing. Here’s a super quick friendship bracelet how to idea to get your duct tape creativity juices flowing: Cut two strips of the most fun colored tape you can find into 8 inch strips. Tape the strips together, tacky sides facing in. Wrap the strip around your wrist and secure with a small piece of tape. Tada! Super simple and really cheap.
And did you know, you could win a college scholarship for making a prom dress out of duct tape? DIY pays!
