Introduction: Duct Tape Bracelet

If you like to be creative with duct tape, and you like jewelry. This is for you. Have Fun!

Step 1: Materials

1. Duct tape (any color)

2. A cutting mat (or anything to cut on)

3. A ruler

4. A blade (please be careful)

Step 2: Measuring Tape

Cut 12 inches of duct tape using the blade. Be careful not to cut yourself.

Step 3: Cutting Strips

Cut your 12 inch piece of tape. Use your ruler to make the line straight. It does not need to be perfect. You should end up with 2 strips. Repeat steps 2 & 3. You should end up with 4 strips of tape but you only need 3.

Step 4: Folding Strips

Fold about 1/3 of the strip (does not need to be exact.)

Next you fold the other side. Do NOT put it at the top. Fold it slightly above the other fold.

Do this to 3 other strips

Step 5: Starting Your Bracelet

Secure you 3 strips to a table make sure the strips don't fall out when you tug on them.

Next you start to braid your strips. Do it as tight as possible. Its going to be hard in the beginning, but it gets easier after a while.

Step 6: Ending Your Bracelet

To close your bracelet, cut about 3 1/2 inches of tape.

the cut an inch vertically. Then in half.

You should end up with 4 pieces.

Use the smaller pieces to close the bracelet.

Step 7: Closing It Off

Cut off the other end with the excess.

With the other end get one of the bigger pieces of tape that you cut and put it on that end. Wrap it around.

Then get the other big piece. and place it on that end. Do NOT wrap it around. Cut the excess off the sides.

Now wrap your new bracelet around your wrist and tape it together now you're done.

Step 8: Finished Product

Now you have your bracelet. Have fun looking "Swaggy"

Very cool! I like the idea of woven duct tape strips.

I wonder what else a person could make with this method. Any ideas? :)
