Duct Tape Art For Halloween

Updated on October 10, 2014

Make Halloween 2012 the year you made your Costume with Duct Tape!

Halloween is a fun time of year for families to spend time together creating some creative and artistic Halloween Costumes. I unfortunately am not very creative but thoroughly enjoy looking at all of the costumes. It amazes me every year the things people come up with.

I came across this new book, The Original Duct Tape Halloween Book made by the Tape Brothers and it is just packed full of very creative ideas for Halloween Costumes. You can make anything including. Be creative and have fun! I bet this picture can give you some ideas.

Keep the Kids Occupied this Summer - Give Em Some Duct Tape

"I'm bored." Every parent hears these words every Summer. Why not give them a project to work on. Give them a few rolls of colored Duct tape and some cardboard and poster board and see what they come up with. It will keep them entertained and when Halloween comes around you will already have your costumes made up. I bet they could even make some Halloween Decorations like a bat, or a grave tombstone or a mummy.

Just have fun....How about making a bird costume like this.

Using colored duct tape to create decorations and costumes is also really cost effective.

      We always joked about all the uses for duct tape, but I never dreamed of making a Halloween costume out of it.

      Duck Tape costumes rock! Did you know that the Duck Tape brand has an actual $5000 scholarship for teens who make the best Duck Tape prom outfits as a couple. The winners each get $5000 for themselves and their school. Here's the link - add it to your lens as a featured link:

      Usually, I turn off the lights and pretend I'm not home, but I don't know. Maybe I'll have some fun with duct tape this year.

      I've seen duct tape art before, but never considered it for Halloween. Nice lens.

      You know, we've made lots of things from Duct Tape, but I've never thought about it as far as Halloween goes. We've made the wallets, cell phone holder etc. This is really cool.

      My son (18) loves duct tape. He had a messenger bag made from the sticky stuff and now both he and his brother have wallets. Great lens subject!

      This is so super cool. I can't believe you can make a whole costume out of duct tape! Neat. Some people are so creative.
