All That Glitters Is Gold (Easy Duck Tape Garland)

It’s party time up in here.

Celebrating my man’s birthday.

Now, my dear husband, is definitely not a lover of glitter, glam nor glitz.  No, sir.  So, it’s up to me to bring a little sparkle to his life.

Perhaps a birthday garland made of shiny gold duck tape will do the trick.

Did you know that you can find Duck Tape in shiny gold?

For those times when you need to whip up a stylish prom dress or impress someone with your Duck Tape wallet.

To make the garland, all I did was cut pieces of tape and fold them over a long piece of ribbon.

And then I just hung it up across the mantel.

Let the partying begin…

So, what about you?  Do you have a love of the glitz?  Or a special ability to transform Duck Tape into unique items of loveliness?
