You may or may not know that I recently worked on two craft books (for kids aged 6-12) via Studio Fun (formerly Reader’s Digest Children’s Publications) and one of the books is all about duct tape projects! They will both be released in the fall, but I wanted to share something using duct tape that’s super easy and really fun. You can make beads in just a few minutes, and I will show you how. Mardi Gras will be here before you know it. This year it’s on March 4th. So make these adorable necklaces and bracelets to celebrate!
Note: A self healing cutting mat is a must when working with duct tape!
Not sure when Mardi Gras is? The date changes each year and is dependent on the date of Easter. You can visit the Mardi Gras New Orleans website to find out the date for Mardi Gras each year.
I originally made this project for Spoonful. Spoonful has since closed and the instructions were taken down. I am putting the instructions here until such time that Spoonful projects are redirected to a new home. At that time I will remove the instructions and link directly to the project on their site.
