The Mommy Files: Decorating with Duct Tape

Remember when duct tape was silver? And used only in extremely urgent circumstances in which nothing else was available?

Or unless you were “McGyvering-it?”

Those days are long gone. Duct tape has gotten a major makeover. You can get it in tie-dye, Hello Kitty, solids, stripes, even graffiti! It’s crazy-sauce as Ella would say.

HGTV even has a kid’s room redo that’s focused around duct tape and the brand has its own Pinterest board.

Saved by Love Creations has a whole roundup of duct tape crafts.

Want to try a starter project? Try this duct tape bag; all you need is some scrap fabric, duct tape, a stapler, and some scissors. Personally, I think it’s kind of cute.

And believe it or not, there’s actually really good art that’s made with duct tape.

    My kids love duct tape – they use it to make bows for their hair and clothes for their dolls! I’ve used it to decorate cardboard storage boxes to store my kids’ toys in.

    The best day of my life was when I discovered decorative duct tape. I have it on everything. I have it even on the edges of my wooden kitchen cabinets so when I open them with wet hands when putting away disches The water doesn’t soak into the already water damaged wood. it looks great too.


    Anybody watch the Red Green show? I have to wonder if he has learned bout this new fashion/decorating trend.
