Picture of Duct Tape & Bead

Take a beautiful patterned Duct tape. I got this one at Dollar store for 1.25 CAD

Measure 6 inch long of duct tape and cut it.

Now make a fold at the middle. So, you have now 3 inch long duct tape.

Leave half an inch at one end and start cutting fringes from other end.

Once you finished cutting fringes, now roll it up tightly from one end to another end.

Take your copper wire and rolled duct tape. Start wrapping the duct tape tightly with copper wire ( I wrapped it thrice, you can do 3 or 5 times. but do it tightly). Bring copper wire to top center of the duct tape to add bead.

Add bead to copper wire and cut extra wire with jewelry cutter.

Make a loop using round nose pliers to secure the bead.

Now repeat the procedure to make another one.

Step 3: Duct Tape Earring
