Ducktape Bows

Has anyone else noticed that ducktape is a big thing right now?
There are a lot of things that you can do with ducktape, that I 
haven't even dreamed of doing, or am even going to try to create (ducktape prom dress).

But one thing that did catch my eye was a ducktape bow.
I actually was at a local coffee shop, and when getting a 
double shot on ice with caramel I noticed these adorable bows in a variety of 
different patterns, and colors for sale.
A young girl here in town is making them for only $2.
How cute, and awesome!
So, I bought 3 of them knowing I needed to contribute to this girls passion, 
before I went home and started making my own.
I would feel so guilty if I didn't buy one from her.

Well, here is the step by step on how to make them:

1. Cut 2 strips depending on how long you want the bow to be.
And cut a small thin strip to secure the bow in the center.

I know they aren't evenly cut. I trimmed them later!

2. Put the 2 larger strips together. Sticky side together.

3. Fold the large strip like a fan.
(Hopefully the picture explains a little better.)

Make sure you crease it well.

4. Take the then strip of ducktape and put a bobby pin through the center.

5. Wrap the thin strip around the center of the bow to secure it. 
Make sure the bobby pin is on the bottom.

I will add a photo of Cameron wearing one later.
I couldn't get her to hold still!

Thanks for stopping by "Through Betsy's Looking Glass"!
Happy Ducktaping!


  1. The girls LOVE their bows, I wish I would have recorded Abby's squeal of delight :)

    1. I'm so glad they like them. I can't wait to see them wear their bows.
