Okay….so i’m a little obsessed with Teen Wolf. Not just because the guys are absolutely gorgeous on the show…the story is good too, i guess. Hahaha Just kidding. I love everything about this show. It’s brilliant and always makes me feel like i’m going to have a mental breakdown. Mostly because i’m waaaaay too attached to the characters. I can’t help it………. Ask BoiFromIpanema . He knows how it feels.
Duct tape jewelry? Doesn’t sound classy, right? Wrong! I whipped up a batch of duct tape bows are easy to make and with the variety of Scotch Colors and Patterns available, you’ll never run out of ideas. If you’re like me, you’ll end up making a big batch. I used them for pins, rings and my favorite – necklaces. Here’s a classy spin on duct tape!
To make a 3” bow, cut a 15” strip with craft knife. Cut two half-inch strips for the backing and the center of the bow. Then fold long strips together, and fold ends into center. Using one of the two half-inch strips, seal the back. It’ll look like a chunky bracelet.Pinch center to create the bow look, and wrap the last half-inch strip around the bow.
Punch a hole in the back top layer on each side of the bow.
Attach jump ring to each side. Cut two 9” strips of necklace chain, and attach chain to jump rings. Close jump rings tightly with needlenose pliers. At a jump ring on one of end necklace chain, then add the necklace clasp on the other side using needlenose pliers. Hope you had as much fun as I did! 🙂
Summer is here! This is the time to break out the bright summery colors and what better way to greet it by creating an awesome and EASY “Summer Burst” purse out of duct tape? So, sit by the poolside, grab the fan, an ice-cold glass of lemonade and lets get started!
First, cut fabric according to your desired size. If you’re not sure, make it look similar to a table runner. This fabric will be the lining of your purse! Next, cut strips of duct tape and place it on the BACK of the fabric. Cover just the back. Then, fold it together so that you can only see duct tape. Proceed to tape sides together, creating a pouch. Lastly, add straps use a long strip of tape, and decorate the front!
Now you’re ready for summer! It doesn’t have to stop there, make a case for your sunglasses, or even a super cute clutch!
MayaInTheMoment here! Bringing you another quick, and easy teen craft! I’ve seen many types of DIY bangles lately, and I have bangles that I don’t really wear too often(Frankly because they are plain..). So I thought, why not up-cycle them with something simple as yarn or thread? Let’s get started!
First, peel the tape and place it on the bangle. Then simply wrap yarn or thread around the bangle. This is a great project to do while you’re with friends, (or when you’re at a coffee shop with your mom drinking lattes!)
Of course it doesn’t have to stop there, how about sprinkling CraftyChica or Tulip glitter? Or adding charms? Here’s a bangle my mom did. She used a wide wood bangle and added oil cloth fabric. These bangles are definitely going to turn heads! So try it for yourself, and go crazy!
