Simple DIY Duct Tape Earrings
I've been on a decoupage kick lately but with all the layers of paper and glaze and more glaze and waiting for glaze to dry and waiting.... I wanted something quick! Then it came to me....duct tape!
I have a bunch of these 1 1/2" wood discs that I need to use up. (you can find them in craft stores but I got mine online) I first took a sharpie to the rims then sealed the entire disc with clear Krylon acrylic spray so they wouldn't warp and let dry.
|Use sharpies or nail polish to paint the rims!|
I tore off a small piece of duct tape or Duck Tape they call it and... BAM! I pressed the duct tape on the disc then took a small sharp pair of scissors and trimmed. Even though it gets sticky, it was fairly easy to get a nice neat edge. I rubbed the edges on a dry towel to seal and to get the sticky stuff off and cleaned the residue off with rubbing alcohol. I drilled holes in my discs but you can use a thumb tack to make a hole, the wood is soft enough. Add some beads and ear wires for some really cool earrings!
