Cool tape projects

Tape is truly and absolutely one of the best art materials ever. You can use it as a means to an end, as in tape resist projects, or as the end material itself (tape collage). It spans so easily between art and craft projects and you can’t forget how functional it is. For instance, you can do just about anything with duct tape.

I was curious to poke around and see what sorts of cool tape art projects I could find, and oh boy. I found at least a million. Seriously. I think I could write 10 posts on this stuff.

Let’s all just explore a bunch of ways to use tape now. I have attempted to be organized, so they are categorized by type of tape. Brilliant, no?

Of course, I would never suggest you give your child tape to put all over their face. 🙂 But maybe you should. And then maybe you should take some photos of it… Wes Naman Photography

      Your duct tape bracelet is so wonderful! Maybe some day it will be warm enough around here for us to make one….

    Thankfully no! The Washi tape is so expensive relative to Duct Tape that I don’t let my kids buy much of it!
