Materials List

  • Duck Tape®
  • Scissors
  • Craft Knife
  • Hook and Loop Fastener
  • Crafting Board


  1. Make a double sided Duck Tape® strip that is 8 in. long.

  2. Make 15 squares of each color Duck Tape® that are 1.5 in. long and 1.5 in. wide. You should have a total of 45 squares.

  3. Take each square, sticky side up, and fold the top right corner over so there is one eighth of an inch of sticky part showing around both edges.

  4. Fold the left top corner down so that there is only a little of your sticky side showing on the bottom.

  5. Repeat steps 3-4 so you have 45 scallops.

  6. Place one of your scallops on the top center of your strip from step 1.

  7. Layer two more scallops on the left and right side of your strip. Create your own pattern with your Duck Tape®. Fold over the excess edges on the back of your bracelet.

  8. Flip the bracelet over and place a small strip of Duck Tape® on the back to clean up your top edge.

  9. Repeat steps 6-7 until you’ve covered the entire bracelet.
