What is something original I can make out of duct tape? Answered

Things besides wallets, like the duct tape roses. Anyway, I'm bored and have lots of duct tape and don't know what to do with it. However, I don't have enough duct tape to cover pants in.

A hat!

Here are some good reference designs for men's caps and leather caps.

The leather caps in particular might be a good fit, since they already have that somewhat glossy appearance.

Yes, so do I. We get quite a few Canadian Geese around here, and except for the white feathers, they are about the right color ;-) Sometimes ducks just quack me up. .

The word "original"  usually means its of your own design...not of someone else's.  However, I once saw a man's suit that was duct tape, and it was astonishing.

Wallets, nor Rose flowers  are not original when it comes to duct tape creations. I have heard there is a book published a few years back with many creative uses for duct tape.

 I just finished making a wallet, and its really good. I had to improvise a little because it wouldn't stay closed. All I did was make a latch for it. You Could try to make a game out of duct tape. Like a Chess or Checkers, or If your really have a lot of duct tape, try a big game like monopoly or risk. It would be difficult, but certainly worth the effort. You would have to use a very sharp knife and lots of colors though, and maybe a sharpie.

I'm fairly certain there isn't a product called "duck tape", but I've heard of this 2 dimensional adhesive material called "duct tape" that can be used fr anything...

I do believe you read that incorrectly. It says nothing about this "duck tape" you speak of. :)

duck tape is a brand of duct tape

Actually, there is some disagreement about whether the origin of the term is duck tape (after duck canvas), or duct tape.

As Goodhart noticed - the Duck brand doesn't exactly help with the confusion. :D

A bit off topic. Wonder if anyone have attempted using Duct tapes as poor woman's (or man) substitute to waxing (facial/body hair removal) =)
Before any of you get any ideas, NO, it's not for me.

Well than that's why. I think you should stop shaving for a week or so, then try it out.

If you cut squares, you could make a draughts/checkers game for your snapple-lid black and white counters ... ... or a backgammon if you cut triangles.
