DIY Duct Tape Bow

Duct Tape has come out with various colors and designs the past few years. Popularity in handmade accessories has become a fashion trend for all ages. Sine you're all so wonderful, here's a easily broken down step by step tutorial for making duct tape bow.

You'll need the following materials.
- Duct Tape (duh)
- Clean Flat Surface
- Scissors
- Ruler/Tape measure
- Scotch Tape (optional)

Step 1: Pull off about an 18 inch strip of duct tape. Lay it sticky side down on your clean surface.

Step 2: Flip half of tape up, with a section at one end longer by just a tad.

Step 3: Form crease, making sure all lines are aligned straight.

Step 4: Use scotch tape to hold end (I used hoop decor tape I don't care for). Align the two sticky sides carefully. 

Strp 5: Wrap around so sticky part left over makes a circle.

Step 6: Hold circle in half, at the middle.

Step 7: Now pinch it in half again, making it layered.

Step 8: Repeat, creating an "M" or "W".

Step 9: Now take your tape for the center, and tape around middle. 
Mess with the crease, and make your bow more plump since its layered.

Use a headband, different style clips, a hairband, etc...

Have an experience to share? Share yours, I'd especially love to see anybody's masterpiece!
