How to Craft a Duct Tape Decorative Letter

How to Craft a Duct Tape Decorative Letter


[MUSIC PLAYING] When you’re designing
your home, it’s so fun to personalize with home accessories. So today I’m going to
do just that and create a decorative letter using Duck fabric. And it’s really great. You can do it in kids’ rooms,
or you can age it up and have it be in your living room or
something, whatever you like. I’m going to do a K
because my name is Kate. And I’m going to use this
fantastic Duck fabric sheet, and it literally has a fabric feel. So the effect’s going to
look really high quality, and then these hung on a
wall or propped on a shelf is just a really great home accent. So I’m going to start out with
the Duck Tape fabric sheet. And since this letter
is large, I’m going you need two sheets to
cover the entire thing. I’m going to lay it down
like this, and then I’m going to cover the rest of my
letter with my next sheet, tada. So I’m going to turn this over,
so the sticky side is up here. And then I’m going to use my scissors to
just kind of cut in between the areas. Now don’t worry, because as you
can as I’m wrapping this around. It’s not the prettiest
thing, but I’m actually going to then line the outside of
my letter with another pattern. And that will totally disguise
this kind of rough edge. So you just continue covering
and folding as you go, but you can see that the
edges here are still rough. So we are going to cover that up
with another glorious pattern. I really love this yellow with
little, tiny polka dots on it. And this is the Duck fabric roll. And you’re just going to
cover around the edge. And you can see that
it fits pretty well. So I’m going to line it
up on the edge and then fold any excess over
the back of the letter. So now that I’ve finished
the yellow side detail, I’m going to add yet another
layer of wonderfulness. And I am done with my pink. So you can see how
cute that looks, where we have these three different
patterns playing around. So I love it as is, but I have
to add another embellishment. And I’m going to make a tassel. So I’ll set my K aside, and I’m going
to make my tassel using this Duck fabric roll in a polka dot pattern. So I’m going to create
first a double-sided piece, and then I’m going to
cut little strips in this because I want it to
be a nice, thin braid. So I’m going to cut three strips. But I’m not going to go
all the way to the top because I want them
connected at the top. And now I’m going to braid. So just to help me out a little
bit, I’m going to tape down my braid so it doesn’t get all squirrely. All right, when you’ve reached
the bottom of your braid, you can just tape it off. I’m just going to use this little
piece that I was using at the top. Now, I’ve got to make my tassel. So going to use the same polka dot blue. And I’m going to cut
about a 12-inch long piece because I want to create about a
six inch long double-sided piece. So just you wait, this
is going to be a tassel because I’m going to use my scissors
to cut just a bunch of little fringe pieces. But again, don’t cut
it all the way through. You want to leave about
a half inch at the top. And now I’m going to attach
my tassel to my braid. So I’m just going to tape
it along one side of this, and then I’m just going to roll it up. Now that I’ve reached
the end of my tassel, I’m just going to seal it with another
piece of matching blue polka dots. If you want to make it look
even more fabricy and tassely, I’m just kind of wrinkling it a bit. And you can see it’s
nice and flexible now, and it’s a perfect little
decoration for your letter. This way? Yes, so I’ll just tape
this along the top so that it blends in perfectly
with my pink up here. All right, and there you
go, our decorative letter. And I just so happen to
have an A, a T, and an E. And that’s how you make Duck
fabric decorative letters. [THEME MUSIC PLAYING]
