In our house, some of the most popular crafts are those that are made from seemingly random practical things we already had around the house. Duct tape is a great example of that kind of “crafting supply” and we’ve been totally obsessed with the idea of using it in all kinds of crafts lately! That’s why we’ve had our eyes peeled for new ideas and tutorials we haven’t tried yet.
1. Duct tape rose
In the spirit of spring, why not make a lovely rose craft out of duct tape that can be displayed just about anywhere or given to someone you love as a simple, crafty little gift? The effect is still a good one if you only have one colour of duct tape, but we’ll admit we do love the way 101 Duct Tape Crafts made theirs in red and green, just like the real thing.
2. Butterfly duct tape hair bow
Speaking of springlike things made of duct tape, here’s another idea that’s nothing short of adorable! We’ve actually made little duct tape butterfly hair clips for our kids before and they were so pleased with them that we got requests for even more in all different colour combinations. Get the full details for making some of your own on Doodlecraft.
3. Magic duct tape wallet
If you’ve never actually made anything unconventional out of duct tape, you might not yet be familiar with just how durable it really is, making it perfect for customized things that you’ll actually use in daily life. That’s why we adore the concept of duct tape wallets so much! This version from Rockin’ The Boys’ Club is the perfect example of what we mean.
4. Kate Spade inspired duct tape iPhone case
Have you ever seen a designer accessory in a trendy pattern that you really liked but you knew you just couldn’t afford the brand name? Well, that doesn’t mean you can’t make yourself something else inspired by that, so you can still enjoy something similar! That’s exactly what As The Bunny Hops did here when they mimicked the look of a Kate Spade phone case in their pocket slider style pouch that’s perfectly sized for an iPhone or iPad.
