A Snazzy Duct Tape Earring Holder, and Good News!

Earring Holder 2

Hi everyone! I have something awesome to share today!  A friend of mine (also a faithful follower of DTD) sent me this picture of her homemade earring holder (tutorial here)! As you can see, she made it using zebra print duct tape. Notice the creative way she arranged the pieces, forming a seamless design. She purposely chose to skip the marker on her project, since the zebra print is slightly busy already. Amazing job!

Now, the news: Remember the sad, sad, post I wrote a while ago about my runaway duct tape? Guess who showed up at my door last night (found by my sister)?

Runaway tapeWe’ve all been reunited :). It’s a good day!

Duct Tape Earring Holder

 Hi everyone, today I’m going to show you how to make a… duct tape earring holder! This is a pretty easy project, but it requires you to make a duct tape sheet. If you don’t know how to do that, check out this tutorial. What you’re going to need is:
Duct tape. I used one color but you can use as many as you’d like.
A permanent marker.
A small piece of straw.
Something big and round to trace. Plates work well.

1. First, create a duct tape sheet (see my tutorial). Trace the round object onto it with permanent marker.

2. Cut out the round shape.

3. Next, thread a piece of yarn through the straw and tie it in a loop.

4. Tape the straw to the back of the duct tape sheet.

I decorated the front of the holder with DTD (guess what it stands for?) You can decorate this however you’d like, but I don’t recommend gluing or taping things on because you will have a harder time of attaching the earrings. To hang your earrings, just poke them through the tape! If they have a back, attach the back on the other side of the holder. Comments? Questions? Ideas? Please comment!
