This is a super-quick, home décor craft – Duct Tape Deco Spheres. Do you remember the Tie-Dye Duct Tape Wreaths I made a while back? And I mentioned that you should save any leftover strips that you’ve torn off the duct tape? Here’s why – you can wind those strips of duct tape around a ball of STYROFOAM Brand Foam and presto – you’ve made a Duct Tape Deco Sphere.
Here’s the shot of my experimental wreath, in which I was trying to determine the best width of duct tape to wrap around the wreath. I found that a 1-1/4” to 1-1/2” wide strip worked best, which means you’ll have a pile of ½”-wide strips leftover. That’s one of my leftover strips on the left, next to the wreath. (I used some really old duct tape when I was experimenting, so it looks kind of yucky).
I just couldn’t bring myself to throw out the leftover duct tape scraps, so I grabbed a ball of STYROFOAM brand foam and started wrapping. The tape sticks to the ball, no problem. You keep adding and wrapping more strips till the ball is covered.
Here are all of the balls I made using the scraps from the wreaths I made that day. (I’ve not yet shared my Zebra Duct Tape Wreath, but I will soon.) Of course, you don’t have to make a wreath to make the Duct Tape Deco Spheres.
I have to confess that I don’t yet think I’m done with this idea . . . Just looking again at these deco spheres got the wheels turning . . .
I found that working with duct tape was so easy. Have you made any duct tape crafts? Tell me about it.
