To make your duct tape and toilet roll bracelets, you’ll need:

supplies for duct tape bracelets

  • cardboard tube  (from a roll of toilet paper, paper towel or gift wrap)
  • Duck Brand Duct Tape (I just LOVE this stuff!)
  • scissors

Making your bracelets:

Simply wrap the Duct Tape around your cardboard tube two or three times to make it nice and sturdy.  If you’re making more than one bracelet, you can do what I did here.  I wrapped the tape for 3 bracelets on one cardboard kitchen roll.

Then I snipped through the roll to separate the bracelets.  I trimmed up any loose bits of tape along the edges of the bracelets.


The final step was to slice long-ways through up the tube so it could be opened up and worn on the wrist.
