Duct Tape Ring

Duct Tape Ring

Hello!

Hello!

Hello!

Today I made a Duct Tape Ring for the first time :)

You know me and Duct Tape! 

Here are some pics of the finished product...


This is Stage 1 of the ring...It was cute..but I wanted it a little fuller...
P.S. My hands look so wrinkly..ewwww

It was right before this Stage that my youngest son decided to take my brand new can of hairspray and spray it all over his toys in his bedroom..Yeah..good times! 

On to Stage 2...


I like this fuller look better..don't you?

This is ALL Duct Tape..even the band :)


So stink'n cute! 

Ok I have to be honest..I made a ring right before this one..and it was UGLY..
It was way too big and I tossed it in the garbage half way thru the process.
My oldest son thinks I'm nuts when I throw things away..but hey..for me it's out of sight out of mind.
And it was seriously awful!

Speaking of Duct Tape..
I had a Girls Night a few days ago and I used Duct Tape in my decorations..


I wrapped Pink Polka Dot Duct Tape around the water bottles!


Closer look...

Ok..

Time for a shout out about Child #2..today was his first day of Pre-School..


It's a little fuzzy cause the kid never stops moving...but at least I got a pic!
He had a great first day back at school and can't wait to go back.

Thanks guys :)

Have a great day!

  5. LOL!!! Thank you :) You know I tend to call myself the Duct Tape Diva around the house :) Below is a link to a video on Youtube...this is the general idea on how to make the ring..how ever I made my squares about 1" x 1"...The first time I did it the petals were just too big..my other advice would be when making the "stem", make sure it's not too tall or else the ring will really be tall and unflattering..you'll see what I mean when you watch the vid.

    My oldest son as a soccer game tonight and it's going to be 90+ degrees out and then tomorrow he has another one but it's supposed to be 98 degrees..YUCK! Wish me luck :)

    If you need any help you know where to find me! Have an awesome weekend :)
    Hugs,
    Nic

  7. Thanks, I bought some dt today, but I went with the cheap grey to make sure I can figure it out first. Good luck with the heat. It's still hot hear in northern Cali but we will have snow soon enough so I am trying not to complain. It's cool in the morning and evenings though.
