Last week we did painting with toy trucks. This simple duct tape craft, making duct tape picture frames, was the perfect finishing touch to the brightly colored artwork.
Materials needed to make your own duct tape picture frames:
- Pieces of cardboard
- Duct tape in a variety of colors
- Permanent markers
We found several cereal boxes in the recyclables container that were perfect for this craft.
Using a ruler, I carefully drew square and rectangular picture frame shapes on the cardboard and cut them out. We covered these with duct tape.
If you have duct tape with some cute patterns, you may want to stop there. Since we only had solid colored duct tape on hand, we decided to decorate the frames a bit using stickers and permanent markers.
Stickers are a fun way to work on fine motor skills while crafting!
This craft doesn’t take very long, but they were both very proud of their work.
The frames turned into pieces of art themselves. Plus, they were extra proud to have their artwork displayed on the walls now that they had their own frames.
