These duct tape bracelets are a great craft for kids who like creating with cardboard rolls and wearing homemade jewellery. They’re fun and easy to make and wear, and all you need is a toilet paper roll and some duct tape.
Did you see the painted toilet roll cuff bracelets that we made last year? Well, they were the inspiration behind today’s bracelet craft.
These bracelets are even easier to make than the painted ones, and they’re mess-free too.
Duct tape comes in so many fun and funky colours and patterns, that I couldn’t resist picking up a few rolls recently. The kids have been eager to use it, but I didn’t really know what we’d make with it. I was really happy when I came up with this idea, and so were the kids.

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

- cardboard tube (from a roll of toilet paper, paper towel or gift wrap)
- Duck Brand Duct Tape (I just LOVE this stuff!)
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.
And there you have it! Duct Tape Cuff Bracelets! Or in this case, ankle bracelets!
Aren’t they fun?
