Be honest, here, people. Do you still have your basket’s from last year? You know, the ones you got from the dollar store because you caved in and got something “cheap” instead of something of “value”?
Well, I good news. There is still time to make your own, using my favorite product in the whole wide world: Duct-tape! And the best part is, Duck brand tape is made in the good ol‘ US of A.
While I can’t promise the baskets will last until next year, I can still promise they are worth having around. My family uses them for all sorts of things: School lunches, toys, hats, Halloween buckets…whatever.
Don’t forget to save your empty rolls, either. They can be reused to make a super-cool water bottle holder!

In 2011, she began to share her self-taught techniques to fellow duct-tape enthusiasts on her website www.artduck-o.com, where she encourages her followers to “think beyond the duct-tape wallet”. She enjoys teaching classes to children and adults on how to be successful with tape. Her favorite projects are Halloween costumes, intricate cut-out work, and the completely unexpected.
