Now Duck tape is essentially sticky ribbon so I went to my copy of How to Make 100 Ribbon Embellishments for a bit of inspiration being that just about everything in the book I bet could be made with Duck tape beautifully.

This page that features a tutorial on how to make Mix and Match ribbon fringe gave me the idea to make mix and match Duck tape pennant banners to dress up my Airstream for summer.

They were so easy and fun to make.

Aside from a variety of Duck tape all you need are straws and string. Simply cut strips of Duck tape about 10 inches long.

Place the straw on the center of the tape.

Fold the tape over the straw back onto itself.

Cut a “V” in the end of the pennant.

To add a center stripe either use the thin Duck tape or cut strips thin. Cut a “V” in the end and place on the larger base pennant.

Trim the straws down to the size you would like the spacing of the pennants to be and thread them onto a string. I used some wire to make a “needle”. A friend told me that when they hang all the flags on a boat it is called “full dress” so my Airstream is now in “Full Dress”.

    I need to win some scissors. I am constantly going through them cutting material and they are always getting dull. Also need new ideas for decoration items for my home. Thank you.

    I never thought of duct tape as a craft item, but lately I have seen some great duct tape’s in the store, so this would be the perfect contest to win.

    Such a clever easy way to make a great banner! Fiskars scissors are my favorite and I can never have enough. Would love to add this book to my collection!

    MY kids found and took my last pair of good craft scissors so now they are covered in glue and tape so I am in desperate need before the fall and winter season comes in!

    What a FUN giveaway! Fiskars makes dependable products for all levels of crafting use.

    I have been eye-balling Fiskars scissors for Duck tape. I am so happy that there is such a product. I work with kids & cutting duck tape is rough & has to be done by an adult, most of the time. It would be great to acquire these items. Thanks!
