Duct Tape Picture Frame

What you need:

Duct tape

Pieces of cardboard as the frame’s structure

And finally, the picture you’ll frame

What you’ll do:

  • First cut the shape of your frame out of the cardboard.

  • Carefully tape the parts of the frame together.
  • After taping the pieces, slide the picture in carefully.
  • Cut another piece of cardboard in a trapezoid shape to create a stand for the frame, and attach it to the back.

Duct Tape Sunglasses Case

What you need:

Duct tape: Choose a fun, printed duct tape if you want.



Cutting knife

What you’ll do:

  • First measure the felt with the glasses to see how much you’ll need. Remember to cut an inch larger since you’ll need space to store the pair.
  • Cover the measured felt with duct tape; the last piece should hand over the felt at least half an inch.
  • Flip the felt side over and carefully cut corners to create folds.
  • Tape the ½ inch tape over the felt to form the opening of the case.
  • Fold the bottom to the top and smooth out the case.
  • Tape the excess to close the seams shut.
  • Carefully wiggle the sunglasses inside and out a few times to loosen them up, and voila! You have your DIY duct tape sunglasses case!

DIY Desk Organizer

What Are Some DIY Crafting Ideas With Crafting Tapes?

Ans: Craft tapes are very much like washi tapes, but they can be a little more sturdy and thicker than mainstream washi tapes. They’re primarily used for arts and crafts. Here are a few ideas for crafts that you can create using crafting tapes,

  • Jewelry: Make cute bracelets, necklaces and/or rings with craft sticks. You can wrap DIY wires with crafting tapes to make them more sturdy and long-lasting.
  • Decorations: Crafting tape is superior for creating adorable decorations. Use it to wrap vases, flower pots and/or stationary to jazz them up!
  • Make fun projects with your little ones using crafting tape to border their chart papers.

Can You Use Packing Tapes for Crafts?

Ans: You’d think using packing tape for crafts is a big no-no. But here we are! We’ll give you some amazing DIY crafting ideas with packing tape,

  • Fun stickers: Lay out sticker images on parchment paper and then carefully lay packing tape on the top. After drying and letting the stickers set for some time, just remove the parchment paper from the bottom, and voila! Your stickers are ready!
  • Painting: Create cool painted pieces using pieces of wood. Just paint the wood, lay the tape on top, and smooth out the folds. Then, carefully peel off the tape to create a cool effect.
  • Labels: Soak laser printed paper with packing tape on top in some water for some time. Carefully scratch the paper off the tape, and your label is ready!


I believe in making the impossible possible because there’s no fun in giving up. Travel, design, fashion and current trends in the field of industrial construction are topics that I enjoy writing about.
