Duck Tape Trick or Treat Bag

Pin It
A few weeks ago, I was the lucky winner of a gift basket full of Duck Tape! Does life get any better?! I love me some Duck Tape. A lot of it in the gift basket was Halloween themed so I knew I needed to come up with something quick before it was too late to craft with Halloween Duck Tape. That’s when it hit me like a ton of Duck Tape. A trick or treat bag!
I really like how it turned out! It is extremely sturdy and waterproof too.
Here’s what you’ll need…

*2 rolls of printed Duck Tape. These aren’t as long as the solid Duck Tape, so you will use the entire roll for both of them.
*Solid colored Duck Tape This isn’t pictured. I didn’t know I would need it til I ran out of the printed kind. If your bag is smaller than mine, or if you use a solid color for your bag, you won’t need this additional tape.
*Duck Tape stickers (optional)
*Bag about the size you want your bag to be.
First, measure out a piece of tape for the bottom of your bag by putting tape right against your bag and cutting it to the same size.
Lay out the piece that you just cut. Cut another piece of tape the same size. Lay them side by side, overlapping them a little so they stick together. 
Repeat the last 2 steps with the other printed tape. This will be the lining of your bag.
Wrap a piece of tape around the bag. Cut a piece of tape long enough to go around the bag. 
Cut several more pieces of tape the same size and overlap them a little to make them stick to each other. Do this until it is as tall as you want your bag to be.
Cut the same amount of pieces in the same size in your other printed tape. Lay the outer layer with the printed side down and stick the print that will be the lining on top with the sticky sides together.
Make handles by taking two pieces of long tape and sticking them together. Bend to look like a handle and tape onto the print that will be inside of the bag. Do this two times so that you have one handle on each side of your bag.
Fold your bag over and tape the edges together. This will make it look like a bag without a bottom.
Insert your bottom piece inside of the bag. You will have to bend it a little. Tape it in on the inside and the outside to be sure it holds well.
Now you have a bag! You can stop there, or you can embellish it a little! 
I added glow in the dark Duck Tape stickers to mine to add a little more fun to it. I love that the inside and the outside of the bag are different! 
Now go get your tape on!
