They say you can fix almost anything with duct tape. However, 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.
Creative Ways To Use Duct Tape
I bought some duct tape, that looked like a shiny metal or steel. Because of the industrial look, I can easily transform things to look like metal. I thought I would have fun playing around with it 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.
Decorate A Container For An Industrial Vase
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 simply 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.

The handles on this Hermes inspired handbag are covered with duct tape. This whole project, by Craftster – Brainybee ,is made up of recycled materials. She set out to make a copy of the most expensive handbag at $200,000.00 for just a couple of dollars. I think she did an amazing job!
Add Stripes To Luggage
Duct tape craft idea by Real Simple.I love this idea by Real Simple for identifying luggage! Trying to find your luggage among the 50 other bags that look exactly like yours in the airport gets to be a little frustrating. I have put brightly colored ribbons on the handles of mine but I love this idea for sticking a strip or two of colorful duct tape right on the luggage. 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!
