When we pick projects to feature on DuctTapeFashion.com, we don't just consider the craft, but we consider the quality of the photo as well. A great easy way to make your crafts "pop" is to photograph them on some colored paper. That's what we do for the rolls of tape, and it's super easy and super cheap to do.

Sherry Rowland's Steampunk Duct Tape 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.

You can check out more of Sherry’s designs on her Facebook page. You can buy duct tape from tapebrothers.com.

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. Kennedy made the pattern on the side by making duct tape rose petals and layering them in rows. Thanks for sharing, Kennedy!

Our friend Virginia Morlino on Facebook wanted to make something unique for her little one, so since it’s back-to-school time, she decided to make a Minnie Mouse backpack. Virginia checked out some backpacks she liked for ideas, and modified a pattern to make a unique design. This backpack is 100% duct tape -- except for the two zippers.

Great job, Virginia. And thanks for sharing! You can see more of Virginia’s work on her page on Facebook. You can buy Minnie Mouse duct tape at Tapebrothers.com.
