Twelve Days of Duct Tape Christmas Ornaments 11

Twelve Days of Duct Tape Christmas Ornaments… #11.  This one might be my new favorite.  I love how it turned out.  I used all green almond shaped duct tape pieces as a base and then added two of my filigree duct tape die cuts in red.  It’s a perfect fit and just looks cool spiral scrolly all over… I love it!





I really want to do a whole tree in variations of this ornament.  I also love the idea of adding my filigree duct tape die cut to any old ball ornament for a fun makeover!

Tell me what colors you’d like to see this in.  Stay tuned for one more day of Twelve Days of Duct Tape Christmas Ornaments.  Tomorrow I’m giving away a free pattern.

I love this color combination, but I’m not sold on the pattern.  I think it needs more silver, but I’m not sure where.  Tell me your ideas.

Duct Tape Turkey

Another unique and elegant use for scallop circle duct tape die cuts… Turkey Place Cards!  I’m always trying to find fun ways to add turkey details to my Thanksgiving table.

I cut the gold scallop circle die cuts into quarters and used them as the tail feathers.  Then I cut a circle out of brown duct tape and a pointed oval shape out of silver duct tape for the head.  What I love about duct tape crafts is how easy they are to peel off and stick anywhere, not to mention the shiny effect for a little glamour in every occasion.

This one might be my favorite.  I cut strips of duct tape into rounded half-ovals and taped them to a paper cone.  It kind of looks like owl feathers.  Very autumny and woodlandy… I love it!

Elegant Glow in the Dark – Stick or Treat

Here it is!!  My entry is in!!  I’ve entered these fun glow in the dark duct tape pumpkins in the Duck Brand Stick or Treat Halloween duct tape crafts contest.  Tell me what you think!

Would you make this for your home?  I used my filigree duct tape die cuts in glow in the dark duct tape (yes, they have that now!).  Duck Brand duct tapes also now come in little duct tape mini rolls that are thinner and easier to work with for more detailed projects.  The glow in the dark comes in the mini roll too.  I used this for my glow in the dark chevron pumpkin, which is kind of my new favorite!

I’m still working on getting a good night picture to show them glowing in the dark.  I think I can get them to glow better if they were in more direct sun, but they are on a north facing entry way that sees a lot of shade throughout the day.  I’d love to hear any suggestions on this!

What would you make with Glow in the Dark duct tape??
