Introduction: Duct-tape Bracelets
These bracelets are a great, stylish edition to your jewellery box! They are easy to make and can be customised with many different colours, jewels etc.
Step 1: Gather Your Materials
You will require:
◘ A pair of Scissors
◘ Some String
◘ A permanent Marker (Any colour/s you choose)
◘ A Ruler
◘ Duct-tape (Do not use super-strength tape)
◘ Jewels (I bought mine from the dollar store)
Step 2: Measure and Cut the Tape
Grab a piece of string and wrap it around your wrist twice. Cut one strip of tape the same length as the string. Do not stick the tape to your skin.
Step 3: Fold in Half
Fold your tape in half so that the sticky sides are stuck to each other.
Step 4: Remove the Bubbles
Make sure you smooth out any air bubbles with a ruler!
Step 5: Bracelet #1
Repeat steps 1-4. For this bracelet I cut the tape in half length-ways so it was half as wide (but can still fit around my wrist). Next I simply cut a strip of jewels and stuck them on the bracelet!
Step 6: Bracelet #2
Repeat steps 1-4. For this bracelet I folded my tape in half and started cutting the pattern shown above.
Step 7: Bracelet #3
Repeat steps 1-4. Fold the tape in half lengthways (like in bracelet #1) and decorate with a gold sharpie!
Step 8: Secure the Bracelet
To secure the bracelet around your wrist; simply stick a small piece of tape on both ends of the bracelet.
Step 9: Enjoy!
