Duct Tape Tie




Introduction: Duct Tape Tie

About: I love to make anything and everything and I will give anything a go.

Do you want a stain free tie? Are you are a trend setter? Do you hate spending money on clothes? Then this is perfect for you. This is a very cool plastic tie made from only duct tape.

Step 1: Stick It Together

Start by lying a piece of duct tape the same size as the tie, sticky side up, next to a skinny tie. I think a regular tie would be to wide to make it like this. Then lie down another piece of duct tape down next to your first piece. Starting from the top carefully stick the two pieces together. Trying to make sure they are as strait as possible.

Step 2: Cut It Out

Next I carefully cut around the tie so that it is the same shape. I found it easiest to cut it out in stages. You can do this by cutting a small strip on one side. then cutting the same strip on the other side. Make sure you cut out the triangles at the top and bottom of the tie.

Step 3: The Loop

Use some exes tape that you have cut. Then make a loop with it. Finally sticking the loop to the back of the wider side of the tie with some more duct tape.

Step 4: Finished

Then just tie it as you would an ordinary tie. I don't think I will be wearing this to any formal interviews any time soon. However I do think it looks quite good. And would make a perfect accessory for a recycled fission show. I hope you enjoyed reading.
