Stainless steel rivets bind the purse together in all the right spots to make this a completely functional accessory -- not to mention the indestructible factor. MalleableGifts uses extra wide rolls of duct tape to make the seamless panels.

20131008 pillow

Our friend on Facebook Rachel Heimberger shared this great looking Duct Tape Pillow. To make the pillow, Rachel layered tape to make two duct tape sheets that were 11 inches square. For the pattern side, she used Duck Brand Red White Blue waves duct tape, and for the inside, she just used leftover scraps. Then she put the pieces together, pattern side facing and then stapled the sides and bottom, covering the seam with more duct tape. The shed turned the whole thing inside-out, stuffed it, and sealed the top with duct tape.

One of the criteria we look for when picking crafts to display on DuctTapeFashion.com is the quality of the photo. There's been lots of times where we've encountered a photo of a great craft, but the background is ugly, or the lighting is bad, and we couldn't feature it there. We think these photos of Duct Tape Flowers from our friend @ducktapebotique13 on Instagram is a great example of how to use what's around your house to make a nice background to complement your craft and create a nice photo.

Sherry Rowland's Steampunk Duct Tape Fedora

20130828 fedora

Our friend on Facebook Sherry Rowland shared this amazing Steampunk Duct Tape Fedora that she made as a gift for a friend. She used regular strength gray duck brand duct tape to build the hat. She didn’t have a pattern so she based it off other fedoras she had seen. To create the rivets and lines, Sherry used a hot-glue gun. Then she painted the entire thing in 3 layers of paint. First she spray painted it black, and then applied two different shades of brown with her fingers to create varying texture and to give it the leather look. The various steampunk accessories were pinned on or hot-glued. It took Sherry 5 days of off and on work to complete the project.

Our friend Kennedy Fruik on Facebook shared a photo of a Duct Tape Clutch she made. She said around prom season, she sold a few of these clutches to make some extra money. She matched the colors of the tape with the color of the dress, and most people had no idea the clutch was made of duct tape until she mentioned it.
