This month Crafty Hangouts is sponsored by Duck Brand tape!! I love Duck Tape and it comes in all kinds of colors and finishes like Glitter Duck Tape, Metallics, and Prints as well as sheets that you can cut in an electronic cutting machine, with a craft knife, or in a manual die cutting system to create really cool holiday decor with Duck Tape. I received a great assortment of holiday colors and am excited to share a few easy holiday projects in my extra long video. I know, time got away from me but there's like 4 different projects in the one video so I hope you enjoy it!

Metallics are so in this holiday season. I think I've seen no less than 89 tutorials on Pinterest for painting metallic stripes or patterns onto glassware and wood to make holiday decor. But spray paint is not always a good option if you live in an apartment, are pregnant, or live in a super windy area, like me. Enter Duck Brand Tape! You can add stripes and strips of Duck Brand Tape to anything to make it have that holiday shimmer and sparkle instantly. Plus, you can remove the tape when you're done with the holiday display. Pretty snazzy, right?

Here's a holiday flower arrangement I got on clearance at Target this week. I covered a damaged area and added some holiday shimmer with metallic Duck Brand Tape in Gold and Silver.

Next, I decided to upcycle a Starbucks' bag into a reusable gift bag, with Duck Tape.  I get so many of these bags and after I reuse them once, they fall apart. It seems like a shame! You can do this project with any “nice” paper shopping bag and never have to buy gift bags again. Seriously. I am never buying gift bags again. You can arrange the tape on the bag in any pattern you like to cover the logos on the bag and add color. Unlike paint or paper, the Duck Tape reinforces the bag making it stronger and longer lasting.

To match the bag, I made some gift tags with Duck Brand tape, an indelible marker, and a stamp with solvent based ink.

And finally, I made a really cool traditional holiday gift bow using Duck Brand Tape! These bows look really cool with the glittered outside and colored inside and you can use them year after year because they won't crumple and fall apart like those el cheapo bows mom and dad used to buy.
