I was inspired by my daughter to create duct tape earrings since she made some. (She is the Duct Tape Queen, check out her “Duct Tape Mania” series under Mini Me: http://craftlantis.com/mini-me-ccs-crafts/!!!) So I created my own new version of duct tape earrings, which I have yet to see any where else. To create the swirly long or swirly square long earrings, you simply cut a duct tape circle into a swiril or a duct tape square into a square swirl (if that makes sense).
To create a bow, just use a rectangular duct tape piece and bend or fold it in accordian fashion and wrap the middle with a small sliver of tape. I used cardboard or plastic pieces for some of the earrings with Adinkra Symbols of West Africa, (and glitter and sharpee markers and wire and earring hooks). But be creative! I know some of these earrings may be too loud and too big for some people’s tastes but I love them. You can create an earring design unique to your style.
I special ordered my supplies from Walmart, for under $50. It was a fun project. Contact me if you’d like a pair.
