Duct Tape Rose Washer Necklace

I made this necklace specifically for the CSI Project Hardware Store theme challenge.

Visit thecsiproject.com


We had to use at least one item in our project from the hardware store. My items are the different sized washers, duct tape and paper paint samples.

First I made a duct tape sheet (tutorial here):

Then I die cut the same way as I would for my fabric roses:

Here is a short rose tutorial:

 

I also die cut circles from the free paint sample cards from home depot for the 2 small and one large washer:

Mod Podged the circles onto the washers, hot glued washers onto felt, cut around the washers, attached 2 bails, a chain and here we go:

  5. You clever woman. These are very creative and you really have to look close to discover the individual components are hardware and duct tape.

  34. This is a terrific idea. I had no idea you could do that with duct tape! I mean, I've seen duct tape wallets, but that's as far as my imagination has ever taken me. this is really neat. And pretty. Make me one?

    Kidding. sort of. but not really.

    Thank you for participating in the Craft Therapy Session with Life in the Pitts!
