For January’s #CCBG craft challenge, we had the topic “tape.” Here’s what we came up with! Be sure to check out the links below, too.

Duck Tape brand tape is versatile for all types of craft projects, including a braided bracelet! It comes in multiple colors and patterns that are adorable and super-easy to work with. I’ve decided to make a braided bracelet for this month’s #CCBG Craft Challenge, and I think you’re going to love it!
There are only three items you will need: Duck Tape, scissors, and a ruler. Simple.
Duck Tape Braided Bracelet Process:
Step 1: Measure three stripes of 12″ each of any color tape you like and then attach those three pieces together on one. Fold the pieces of tape over to make thinner strips.
Step 2: Braid the three pieces of tape as you would braid a child’s hair. I found it helpful to have someone hold the end as I braided so that I could make it neat and tight.
Step 3: Take a piece of any color of Duck Tape and use it to attach the ends of the bracelet together to form a circle that fits your wrist. If it doesn’t fit correctly, no worries! You can always cut it and tape it again.
Step 4: Choose any color of Duck Tape for a bow. Cut about 2″ of tape and tape 2″ more to the back of it so that both of the sticky sides are stuck together; the non-sticky back Duck Tape forms a flat shape of a small rectangle. This small piece will be used to accordion-fold the a small bow that will be placed on the bracelet as an accent.
Step 5: Finish the bow by cutting a very, very thin piece of Duck Tape about an 1 1/2″ long to wrap around the middle of the accordion-fold to form the cinch for the bow.
That’s how you make a Duck Tape braided bracelet.
Just think of how many gifts you can make with the Duck Tape in those three rolls! Each one can be a beautiful and unique piece of jewelry for you or for gifts (think Valentine’s Day!).
