The holidays are the perfect time for crafts and this year I wanted to create a fun and easy project by making Holiday Gift Wrap with Duck Tape®! It’s a simple project that’s perfect for holiday decor and of course gifting.
Every time I walk by a craft aisle at any store I have to stop and look. I love browsing and getting inspired. I also love looking at all the different colors Duck Tape® offers. The have so many options nowadays and the possibilities are endless. Since it’s Christmas time I figured I would finally use some fun colors and make gift wrap!
Here’s how to make Holiday Gift Wrap with Duck Tape®! To get started you’ll need the following:
- Duck® brand duct tape in various colors: green, red, white, and gold. I love using Duck Tape® for craft projects since their quality is great.
- Boxes, I used old craft boxes I had on hand.
Here’s step by step on how to cover the boxes:
Step 1: Start in 1 direction and start adding strips to cover the box. You’ll want to overlap the strips.
Step 2: Next, wrap the corners. You’ll want to cut a strip that extends about 1″ on each side of the box. Then cut a slit on each side and wrap.
Step 3: Start wrapping the box in the other direction, again overlapping the strips. Complete the same steps for the lid.
Step 4: Next, add 2 pieces of white Duck Tape® down the center on both the lid and box.
Step 5: Then add 2 pieces in the other direction, again on the lid and box.
Step 6: Finally, add gold Duck Tape® on top of the white in both directions.
Here’s step by step on how to make the bows:
Step 1: Double up the gold Duck Tape® by sticking it to itself. This can be tricky, but it doesn’t have to be perfect. Make 3 pieces ranging from around 15″, 12″, and 10″ long.
Step 2: Fold the pieces and trim the edges to make them more clean.
Step 3: Start making the large loop.
Step 4: Pinch the center.
Step 5: Add a small piece of tape to secure it.
Step 6: Make the small loop.
Step 7: Next, add the ribbon strips over the large loop, followed by the small loop.
Step 8: Finally, finish it off with a piece of tape and trim the ends.
The last step is to attach the bow to the box with extra tape and it’s complete! I also wrapped a second box using green Duck Tape®, here’s the after!
What do you think? Doesn’t it look like the perfect Holiday gift wrap! This craft was a simple project anyone can do and it was so much fun.
