Duct Tape Jewelry
Duct tape jewelry is cheap, durable, and a fun accessory! When I was busy making the duct tape pirate sword and eye patch and the duct tape superhero cape and cuffs, I thought I should do something else that’s fun too. So, here it is!

How to Make Duct Tape Jewelry
Toilet Paper Rolls
Clear or Masking Tape
Here’s how I made the duct tape ring.
I decided how wide I wanted the band to be and then cut that off the top of one of the toilet paper rolls. I also cut along the long side of the toilet paper roll. Then, I took the small strip and placed it around my finger to size it. Once sized, I secured it with clear tape.
Then, I covered the ring with duct tape. What girl would refuse a gold ring?
Finally, I used a hot glue gun to adhere a craft bead, adding a bit of bling.
Now, let’s make some duct tape bracelets!
For the thick bracelets, I started by measuring the width of the duct tape (which was 2 inches wide) and then from the ends of the toilet paper roll, I measured just shy of that. I made my marks at those points (which were 1 3/4 inches from the ends).
I cut along my measured points and tossed the tiny portion from the middle. Then I cut the larger rings, so they would be able to wrap around my wrists.
Since I measured at the beginning, I could wrap a smooth exterior on the bracelet. I unraveled part of the duct tape and then layed the bracelet right over it. I adhered the tape to the roll from end to end. Then I rolled the tiny sides around the edges.
Then, I duct taped the insides of the bracelets, but I guess you could skip that step if you wanted to.
I also made some thinner bracelets. I cut one toilet paper roll into four pieces.
Then, I wrapped them with duct tape. Here you can see an option for October and an option for February. I’m sure you could find something for every month of the year.
