Who knew there was so much you could do with Duck Tape? After a recent conversation with Ruth, who works with Duck Tape Colours; stocking a fabulous array of ducktape for all your crafting needs, I just HAD to get her to guest post on here. Here are some inventive, colourful and creative ways of using Duck Tape in your household and interior crafting, look out for some more tutorials on Frugally Peachy coming up! Thanks Ruth for your post – it’s inspiring!
Duck Tape has been known for years as something your Dad might keep in the garage for DIY jobs, but did you know the product now comes in all sorts of colours and patterns for crafters? It’s perfect for interior design on a budget. All you need is a bit of creativity!
I’m Ruth and I work with Duck Tape and I wanted to introduce you to a couple of the fab things you can now do with it. But first of all, the products. No more plain grey for this feathered friend – Duck is now leopard print, bright green, yellow, pink, zebra print. It’s water resistant and can be cut or torn by hand so is also great for use with the kids.
Just some of the things that the Duck Team have been creating are…
Step 1: Cut 2 x long pieces of Duck Tape and lay them both sticky side up on your work surface.
Step 3 : Make two double sides strips that are shorter in length the same way as you did in Steps 1-2.
Step 4: Form the picture frame with the 4 strips by placing the shorter pieces in between the longer pieces.
Step 6: Cut a strip of Duck Tape slightly longer than your short strip and place it directly over the shorter side of the frame, covering the place holder. Fold the extra tape onto the back.
Step 8 : Flip the picture frame over. Centre your photo face down over the frame’s window. Secure the photo in place using Duck Tape. Turn the photo frame round! You could use stickers or extra pieces of Duck Tape to decorate or add magnetic strips to the back to hang your photo on a fridge. Attach string to the back to hang your photo frame, or make a standing frame by taping a piece of cardboard onto the back.
