How to Make a Duct Tape Pokeball

Introduction: How to Make a Duct Tape Pokeball

This is how to make a duct tape pokeball. It might not be the best, but it's very accurate. I'm making it right along side you because this is just my prototype so bear with me! Thanks for choosing mine instead of someone else's. My brothers like Pokemon. I do this inspired me to make a duct tape pokeball. Enjoy!

Step 1: Gathering Materials

You'll need red, white, and black duct tape along with scissors.

Step 2: Making the Core of Your Pokeball

Take a long strip of duct tape, and I mean long, of black and make it unto a ball. Make sure no adhesive stuff is sticking out.

Step 3: Adding the Red of Your Pokeball

Take another long strip of duct tape of red and wrap the top. Simple no?

Step 4: Adding the White Bottom

Take another piece of white duct tape and wrap the half that still has the black in it. Continue like you've never continued before!

Step 5: The Black Band

Now take a piece of black duct tape and cut it in half lengthwise. Save the other half. Cut one half lengthwise AGAIN and wrap it around the middle. Save the other half. Wrap both the halves around for better view for want of better words. Continue.

Step 6: The Button

Take a decent sized piece of black duct tape and cut a large circle out of it. Place it on the middle of the black band. Now, take another piece of white duct tape and cut a little bit smaller circle and place that in the center.

Step 7: Conclusion

Well that's how. Mine is more squared at the top honestly. You could use this for decoration. If you want to carry it just attach a small bit of duct tape to the back. Then stick it to a belt or the top of your pants even. Have fun with your new pokeball!

    Pokemon is like my thing almost. I have an entire box of Pokemon cards and I've had them since I was 9. I paint pokeballs and make them out of duct tape. My brothers like my creativeness and they enjoy playing with my stuff that I make out of duct tape. I'm only 11 so it's kinda impressive. I thank you for the very kind comments and I wish that We were actual friends. You people are the best!

    A lot of nice comments boosts my confidence. I thank you
