I have a ton of empty Duct Tape Rolls lying around...I just can't bring myself to throw them in the recycle bin.
So I made a Duct Tape Roll Cross for my bedroom!
A couple days ago one of my followers Noreen asked me what she could do with her empty rolls.
It was perfect timing cause I had already had a few idea's up my sleeve for this week.
So Noreen, here is just one of those idea's I promised you :)
Here's how I did it:
I grabbed a bunch of empty rolls and started laying them out on my counter.
I knew I wanted to make a cross so I just moved them around until I got the cross that I liked.
I ended up using 10 rolls. 6 going down the vertical part of the cross, and 2 on each side for the horizontal portion of the cross.
Next I broke out my hot glue gun...I heart my glue gun!
I simply put one thick strip of glue down the side of the roll and connected it to another roll.
I squeezed them together for a second and that was it.
I went on to the next one, making sure to keep the shape of my cross and making sure they were even.
Half way done. So now I took it outside and spray painted it with a light blue spray paint I already had in the garage. It matches the blue in my bedroom so it worked out well.
Our bedroom colors are tan, light blue and brown.
Done! Now all I needed was one little nail and I hung it on my wall....Well Crafty Soccer Dad actually did the hammering of the nail into the wall.
I gotta give credit where credit is due :)
So what do you think?
I love it!
I think it's pretty awesome! I'm really happy with how it turned out.
I'll have more projects soon, that you can use your empty DT rolls.
Have a great day
