Duct Tape Hair Bows!

duct tape hair bow

Hello, faithful followers! Today I’ll show you how to make a duct tape hair bow. When made correctly, these bows should have no exposed sticky spots, so they won’t get stuck in your hair. Since they’re so easy to make, I’ll just write out the instructions.

Materials:

Duct Tape

Scissors

Ruler

Bobby Pin

1. Cut 3 pieces of duct tape. One should be 4 inches long, and the other two should be 1/4 inch long.

2. Fold the big piece of tape in half vertically. It should still have the same width but be 2 inches long. Fold it sticky side to sticky side, and if any sticky bits hang off make sure to trim them.

3. Accordion fold the big piece of tape. 

4. Wrap a small piece of tape around the middle of your accordion folded piece. You now have a completed bow!

5. Wrap the second small piece of tape around the bow, overlapping the first piece. This time, however, attach it to the bobby pin as you wrap.

And that’s it! Again, make sure there are no sticky parts that will be exposed to your hair. Likes, follows, comments, and especially shares are greatly appreciated :D. Ciao for now!

Duct Tape iPhone 5 Case

PicMonkey CollageHi everyone! Just a quick post to show you an iPhone 5 case I made tonight! I haven’t quite finished yet- I still need to add a camera hole and buttons. But I just needed to show you all right now! Unfortunately I won’t be able to write a tutorial on this as I just made it up as I went along, but I really wanted to showcase my project!

Duct Tape Beads

Bead

Hi everyone! Today we’re going to make duct tape beads! I decided to try another image tutorial- it’s not perfect but I’m still learning, so “stick” with me. I found an awesome site for info graphics and image editing called Picmonkey, so get ready to see some nice images in future posts! Now, to the project. Please note that this craft requires the use of an Exacto knife, and although kids can wrap and string the beads by themselves, they should not be allowed to handle the sharp knife.
