Duct Tape Crafts – Die Cut Use #8 Thanksgiving Wreath

If you’re like me, finding the perfectly elegant and non-cheesy door wreath for every holiday is a challenge.  I’ve always thought my house looks more homey and cozy with a door wreath, but it’s hard to find the best one for every season of the year.  Well, now I have a solution and surprise, surprise… it involves duct tape crafts!  I’ve taken my scallop circle die cuts and made them into a more permanent door wreath that I can add to and dress up for each and every holiday and season of the year!


With fall accents in brown and gold, these Thanksgiving duct tape crafts holiday wreaths are the perfect welcoming addition to your door for holiday guests.



I’d love to hear from you!  Tell me how you plan to decorate for Thanksgiving and how duct tape can play a role in all the elegant details.  I’d also love to hear what color of scallop circle duct tape wreath would work for a year-round door detail.

Duct Tape Crafts – Kids Art Frame


Duct Tape Picture Frame

Make this quick and easy duct tape picture frame to display your kids art work.  I took an inexpensive plastic display frame and added my favorite black and white damask duct tape around the edges.  I even made mitered corners to make it look like a real picture frame.  I love this instant makeover and a fun way to change out different display pieces.  I can put in a picture or show off the latest Jackson Pollock from my two year olds!

Here’s to many more days of coloring outside of the lines!

Duct Tape Crafts Tree Center Piece


Decorating for the holidays is a great way to add personal touches to your home!  I will be sharing easy and fun duct tape crafts to decorate for the holidays.  Starting with this fall themed duct tape tree in shiny yellow.  The great thing about duct tape is that it’s sturdy, durable, easy to work with, and comes in lots of colors and patterns.  I just made a simple cone shape out of regular printer paper.  I then cut pieces of duct tape and placed them around the paper cone.  I then tied a pretty fall ribbon around the tree to finish it off.

Think about the possibilities for this with different colors and patterns of duct tape.  This would also make a great gift for Christmas or a hostess gift.  If you’re not bringing the turkey or green bean casserole, bring this fun and easy duct tape crafts tree to the Thanksgiving table this year.  I’d love to make one for you.  Check my shop for custom orders!

How to Make a Duct Tape Wallet


I love to craft!!!  And I know other people love to craft!  I decided to share one of my patterns for the men’s style bifold duct tape wallets so that other crafters could learn how to make a duct tape wallet too.  The best part of crafting is adding your own personalized touches to each project.  That’s what I love most!  This is a clean cut design that helps minimize sticky edges.  In this downloadable PDF, I share my tried and true tips and tricks I have acquired over the years in making this design.  I use scissors only because I have little ones in my house and I don’t like the idea of using razor blades or exact o knives.

Check back in for additional patterns I will be adding soon for my women’s wallets and business card holders.  As always, I love custom orders and would love to dissect any duct tape project and break it down into a pattern for all to enjoy.
