Duck Tape® Monster Corkboard by @amandaformaro CraftsbyAmanda.com

Everyone knows that Duck Tape® is extremely popular, and for good reason. It’s easy to work with and a great mess-free way for kids to decorate just about anything. I had this idea to cover a foam sheet in Duck Tape® and use it as a corkboard. However, I didn’t have any sheets, but I did have a couple of Styrofoam wreaths lying around!

That’s when this cute monster popped into my head.

You only need two different supplies: the wreath and Duck Tape®. I used purple for the monster and white and black for the eyes. You could certainly use whatever color strikes your fancy.

Do you hang out with me on Instagram? If so, then you saw me post this picture of the Duck Tape® display at Walmart. Yes, you can buy Duck Tape at Walmart! This display is huge and there are tons of colors and patterns!

Be sure to check the craft supply aisle as well, where you’ll find even more Duck Tape®. It’s great for kids to turn their boring school supplies into something cool. Cover notebooks with it, stripe your pens, make pencil cans and desk caddies, and lots more. So be sure to add Duck Tape® to your back to school Walmart shopping list! If you need more creative inspiration follow Duck Tape® on Facebook and Twitter for tons of ideas.

If you keep up with me on Facebook, then you may have seen me post this sneak peek last week.

To make this corkboard, start by cutting off a piece of Duck Tape® long enough to wrap around the wreath once, keeping the seams either in the back or the center.

Duck Tape® Monster Corkboard by @amandaformaro CraftsbyAmanda.com

It’s easier to cut the tape into sections, don’t try holding the roll and wrapping around. It’s too difficult and you’ll end up with creases and bumps.

To make the teeth, cut a piece of white Duck Tape® and fold it onto itself, sticky side to sticky side.

Now use the scissors to cut out a tooth. Repeat this step until you have enough teeth. I cut out ten, six for the bottom and four for the top.

You’re going to use a glue stick, but only for tacking purposes. It’s to hold your teeth in place for the next step.

Duck Tape® Monster Corkboard by @amandaformaro CraftsbyAmanda.com

Using the glue stick, tack the teeth in place at the bottom section of the wreath. Next, cut sections of purple Duck Tape® over the bottom of the teeth to hold them in place and make them look like they are coming out of the wreath. You may need to trim some of the edges of the tape into a curved shape to look natural. Repeat this process for the top teeth as well.

Cut four pieces of white Duck Tape®, about 4-inches long each. Stick two of the pieces together, stick sides touching. Take a third piece and stick the long edge to the long edge of the two joined pieces. Now stick the fourth piece to the sticky side of the third piece. This will join all four pieces together, making a wider piece. Repeat this entire process one more time so that you have two white tape squares.

Use a jar lid (in my case, a lid from a decoupage container) or some other round object to trace a circle onto the white square. Repeat for a second one.

Cut out the circles, leaving a tab at the bottom (see photo). Stick two black pieces of tape together and cut out two small circles for the pupils. Glue the black circles to the white circles. Create eyelids using purple Duck Tape®.

Use glue stick to tack the eye tabs to the top of the monster. Cover the tabs with purple Duck Tape®. Attach wall hanging strips to the back of the wreath to hang on the wheel.

There, wasn’t that fun??

Now you can hang it in your room and use it, push pins go right in and stay in until you take them out!

    Tree says:

    Fantastic idea! My grandson loves lil monsters! He also loves Spiderman so I think we would have to make a black web and with the round styrofoam and w/ the circular we would have to make spidey himself and I think that there’s a “Spiderman Duck Tape” :) As for myself I just made a duck tape form to use in my sewing room, now I can give her a little pizzaz.

    The Purple Duct Tape Monster corkboard is so cute. I need to make a new bulletin board for myself for my desk area. I was just thinking I need to replace my red Duct Tape on my desk with another pattern.

    Nancy D says:

    I would love to make my grand daughter a cork board. But maybe a princess or puppy theme. I think a puppy would be easier. Maybe a Dalmatian. And who says it has to have black spots? Maybe a cute girl Dalmatia with pink spots :)

    I would make something similar to your monster corkboard for my daughter to put on her door at college. I would cover it with duct tape and either put and her and her roommate’s names on it or their initials. Thank you for this WONDERFULLY CREATIVE idea.

    Rachel Verdi says:

    OOh, cute monster! I’m cracking up, because instead of ‘stripe your pens’, I read ‘stripe your pets’. rofl Pictured my poor longhaired maine coon kitty w stripes of purple DuckTape! ;)

    As for me, if I win, I’d make tons of little kitschy novelty jewelry items (lines of tiny polaroid charms out of black and white tape, maybe?), wallets, and purses. Duck Tape raaaawks!

    Thanks for chance!

    Peggy says:

    That’s really cute and you could make each child’s in a different color. Great Girl Scout craft idea. I used zebra duck tape to make a luggage tag for my suitcase. Also, I had made a sign for my suitcase “Girl Scout bound for Houston” out of fabric and after I tacked it onto the fabric of my suitcase, I put the zebra duck tape around the fabric to secure it. The zebra duck tape also made it easy for me to pick my suitcase out of the bunch of green ones coming down the conveyor belt. The duck tape held up well with the handlers, even on a trip from PA to Texas!

    Jennifer Turner says:

    Would use the duct tape for binders to use at work & if I get brave enough, perhaps a wallet or purse.

    I’ve got a couple of ideas, one for school and one for Christmas.
    My granddaughter loves butterflies. I’ll make 3D butterflies out of duck tape on a notebook just for her.
    Second, I make Christmas socks. I’m going to use duck tape and make a 3d sock for my grandson who likes video games.

    timberdawn says:

    I like your monster idea. And I think wrapping pencils would certainly help keep track of them. I used some of the hot pink earlier this summer to wrap around a water line that lays in the yard so that the high school help wouldn’t mow into the splice that resulted from their first mowing attempt! Thank you for this opportunity.
