Duct Tape and Lace

While not actually related to duct tape, I did like the name of this store in Troup, Texas- Duct Tape and Lace.

Owned by Robbyn Stockton and her mother Shannan Penrod, the store is a sort of antique shop/flea market with the idea that with a little “duct tape and lace”, old things can be made new again.

Check out some of their items on their facebook page: Duct Tape and Lace .

Kids and Duct Tape

Do you have to be a cute kid to make a living selling duct tape crafts?

Ten year old Francesca Pinto sells duct tape wallets and is sponsored by Westcott Brands, who provide her with her supplies.

It looks like the website is down right now, so I can’t see all of her products but she does have a YouTube Channel and a Facebook page.

Not a lot of info there, but it’s still pretty cool when a 10-year old has her own business!

I See a New Project Coming On

I was reading this article from the Erie-Times News. The topic is decorating your dorm room using duct tape.  Some of the items they mention are frames, lanyards, tablet sleeves, and pencil cups.

But my personal favorite was the desk chair featured in this picture:

I totally want to try this so this may be my next project! I will post pictures here if I do this.

P.S. I had to answer a question in order to be able to read the entire article, but didn’t have to enter any information.




Duct Tape Projects on Display

I found this info from another crafty blogger, so I’m honestly not sure if this is the Orange County (OC) in California, or an Orange County located somewhere else!

But I thought it was interesting nonetheless, so I decided to share! Apparently The 2013 Orange County fair featured duct tape projects made by youth in their “Make it With Duct Tape” Division.

Some cool submissions include, or course, prom dresses, purses and handbags, and even a sweet pair of high tops!
