Introduction: Duck Tape Snow Goggles

Picture of Duck Tape Snow Goggles

The goggles are designed to let in a smaller amount of light to help (NOT completely) prevent sun glare and snow blindness. They also help keep snow out of your eyes. This will probably take only a few minutes depending on how well you keep the duck tape straight while this is being made.

You will need:
Duck Tape
Any piece of string (One that doesn't need to be used for anything else.)
Permanent Marker
Scissors/Knife
paperclip (Only if you don't have string that can be given up)

Step 1: Measurement

Using the string, wrap it once around your head at about forehead level. Either mark it or cut it Three times loosely around your wrist will also work. This will be the Measurement for the Duck Tape.

Step 2: Assembly

Using the string to measure, peel two pieces of duck tape to the size of the string. Then CAREFULLY line them up and stick the together so no adhesive is showing. Its hard to pull apart and get it to stick right once its screwed up.

Step 3: Making the Lock on the Back

Wrap the Duck Tape around into a circle and have one end overlap the other by about 1/2 inch. Make Two marks and cut there. This is were you will either stick a paperclip or use the string to make sure they don't separate accidently.

Step 4: Adding the Eye Holes

Now put it on over your eyes and the rest of it at whatever level your going to wear it at and latch it. Using the Marker mark on the Duck Tape just the length, and location of your eyes (DONT PRESS HARD). Then once this is done take it off and cut the holes were your eyes were.

Step 5: A Final Few Words

The design originally belonged to the Inuits (But I'm pretty sure they used Walrus Tusks, not duck tape) who lived north on the tundra and similiar areas.Please keep in mind these do NOT protect you from flying objects other then snow flakes.
