DIY and crafts are two of my favorite things… and the main reason I started this blog. When I was asked to work with Duck Tape once again, I was excited! This craft was inspired by the the Star Wars- themed Duck tape that I found at my local craft store. These DIY Duck (Duct) Tape Speakers were so easy and I love that this craft looks like it could be a flight prop on the set of the Star Wars movies!
This duck tape craft was made using the following:
-Duck Tape (duh. ;))
-Empty paper towel roll
-Two red plastic party cups
-Scissors, permanent marker, and a box knife
I used three different coordinating types of Duck Tape for the speakers with the Star Wars tape being the star of the craft! The blue and red tape were both used as a highlight tape and the red tape was used to reinforce the plastic party cups where they were cut and to conceal any permanent marker lines.
The red tape color concealed quite nicely against the party cups. They were pretty much the same color! I think covering the edges of the paper towel roll with the blue tape gave it a nice, needed pop of color– don’t you think?
I love this craft because it is such a great item to help direct the sound of the audio playing on your handheld device. It’s shocking how 3 household items can be turned into a piece of technology! This craft is super simple and would be a great project to have the kids help with.. You could teach them about sound waves and how this simple craft helps to direct the sound to help it amplify better. I think it is awesome!
