They say you can fix almost anything with duct tape but now you can actually decorate with it! With all of the new fun prints available for duct tape you can just go wild with your design and craft possibilities.
I bought some duct tape, that looked like a shiny metal or steel, that I thought I would have fun playing around with in a variety of duct tape crafts projects.
Since I love to recycle, it does come in handy for transforming throw away objects into new and decorative uses.
I made this little bud vase out of an empty mini body spray bottle and some of that metallic duct tape:
I just cut a couple of sections of tape and wrapped them around the bottle lengthwise, tucking the ends around the base and into the neck of the bottle. To add a little decorative interest, I simple wrapped a heavy gauge florist wire around the top of the bottle and added a fun bead with some thinner wire.
There are lots of other ways that you can recycle and re-purpose with duct tape. Here are just a few of the fun craft ideas:

Not only does it catch your eye but it also looks nice too. With all of the different colors and designs you would be able to pick out something unique, making your luggage easy to spot!
