How to Make Duck Tape Stars

This post brought to you by Duck Brand provided by ShurTech Brands, LLC. All opinions are 100% mine.

Decorating the Christmas tree is one of my holiday highlights.  Every ornament has a story and I try to artfully place each one in just the right spot on the Christmas tree.

This year I switched up some of the ornaments we display. It made  the big holes in between the some of the branches of our Christmas tree more noticeable. Instead of running to the store to buy bigger ornaments, I ran to the garage and grabbed the Holiday Duck Brand® Tape

Let's Duck the Halls!

No, silly, I'm not going to tape the holes in my tree together.  I'm going to use the Duck Brand® Holiday designs (Seasonal Sweets, Snowmen, Holiday Bows, and Penguin) to make stars to fill the gaps in my Christmas tree.

Duck Brand® loves it when people get creative with Duck Tape.  Duck Brand®  is always happy to see people pinning their Duck Tape projects on Pinterest. Make sure you include #DuckTheHalls in your pin to make sure everyone  will see your project!

Tip: Secure the first piece of Duck Brand® Tape to itself to ensure the star points hold their shape 

5. Continue covering the star points in Duck Brand® Tape.
