Duct Tape Projects Have Evolved
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Duct tape has long been used for everyday mending and repairing of common household items and other items. These repairs range from taping boxes closed and sealing packages to fixing automobile and boat seats and everything in between. Nearly every home has a partially used roll of this wonderful gray tape in the junk drawer to have handy for the next several duct tape projects that come along. However, the uses for this tape have evolved and expanded to include many things never before considered. Thus, colorful duct tape crafts projects were born.

Kids Crafts

There are several of the craft projects that are simple enough that small children can do them with a little supervision. These can include things as easy as necklaces, book marks, hair ribbons, rings and bracelets. These wonderful crafts are great for kids because not only are they simple, but they are items that can be used and kids get a real kick out of seeing something they have made being used or even using the creations themselves.

More Complex Duct Tape Projects

Children that can use scissors and/or a craft knife can do slightly more complex duct tape crafts projects. This can include duct tape wallets, purses, tote bags, book covers, roses, pen covers, and various other items that are only limited by your and your child’s imagination. Although these crafts require a little more coordination, children as young as eight years old have done these projects very successfully.

People have even gotten as incredibly creative and ambitious as to create items of clothing from duct tape. Not only small items like hats, but also skirts and dresses. These particular projects are not for beginners, but there are those that have successfully accomplished it.

Duct Tape Projects for Every Occasion

There is a duct tape craft project for every occasion. It does not matter whether you need a gift for Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving or Christmas, there is some kind of project that you can make out of duct tape that will impress the person that receiving the gift.

As you can see, duct tape has come a long way in recent years. No longer is it used only for gray patchwork and necessary minor repairs around the house. Today duct tape comes in numerous colors and various patterns. It is used to create beautiful duct tape projects that range from simple and basic to complex and outlandish.
