Duct Tape Bow Tie

In this Instructable, you will learn how to create a bow tie out of Duct Tape. The materials are relatively cheap and the bow tie is easy to assemble.

Step 1: Get Duct Tape!

Duct tape comes in many different colors and designs, so don't feel pressured to use just one kind!

Step 2: Making the Fabric

Make a Duck Tape fabric that is about 2 strips wide and 5 in. wide.

(A Duct Tape fabric is made by putting the sticky sides of two strips together.)

Step 3: Making the Bow

Fold your fabric into an accordion shape. Pinch and secure the middle with a strip of tape.

Step 4: Making the Tie

Make a thin double strip tape.

Step 5: Attaching the Bow and Tie

Attach your strip to the back of your bow from step 3.

Step 6: Making and Attatching the Fastener

Add a piece of hook and loop fastener (Usually found at your local hardware store) to the end of your strip.

Step 7: Wear It!

Envy your friends with your new and modernized Duct Tape bow tie.
