Scented Duck Tape

Yes! Duck Tape now comes scented! Enter to win 6 rolls of Duck Tape Scents by leaving a comment in today’s post by September 27, 2014. Open to U.S. residents only please.

I can personally testify to how much fun this Scented Duck Tape is to work with. It’s like those scented markers-I loved those! Well, with Halloween just around the corner I though I try making a candy corn pennant banner like the one on the cover of Felt-o-Ween: 40 Scary-Cute Projects to Celebrate Halloween (enter to win a copy at this post by the 20th) only with Duck Tape Scents.

Scented Duck tape candy corn banner

It was easy and sniff-tastic!

how to make scented duck tape candy corn

I placed 3 strips of Duck Tape on a piece of the paper that printer labels come on. I plan on using the other triangles of the candy corns as stickers and this makes it easy to peal off the tape.

Hallowween scented duck tape candy corn

I pealed back the paper about a 1/4 of an inch and cut it off. Then I stuck the pennant candy corn onto a piece of ribbon. I played with the spacing a bit and settled on about 2 inches apart. Stay tuned to see how I use the other set of candy corn pennants. Good luck to all who enter to win this fun set of Scented Duck Tape!
