OK, so when I said yesterday on my Craft and Hobby Association Mega Show 2014 post that I would post a tutorial on how to make my Braided Duck Tape Bracelet I made at the show “soon”, by “soon” I meant today. Ha!

Being invited and attending the Duck Brand breakfast last Sunday at the show was an honor. I was able to see all the new products and partnerships that the Duck Brand offered. They announced a partnership with Fiskars and a new set of scissors especially made for Duck Tape (I’m SUPER excited about trying those out). They had some fun and clever new patterns like the one’s shown in the background of this Instagram photo I posted.

To make the braided Duck Tape bracelet, all you need are three things, Duck Tape, a ruler, and scissors. First, pick three colors or patterns you would like.

Cut three pieces of your choice at about 12 inches long.

Fold each piece lengthwise in thirds.

I also received this fun bracelet as a gift from Duck Brand! Don’t ask me how to make it though! Ha!
