I don’t know a better way to celebrate this wonderful patriotic week than to create a crown, sash, and torch for a “Miss Dolly Liberty.”
- Duck Tape brand tape in their flag pattern
- Bendable straws (25)
- Pipe Cleaners (red and blue)
- Pompoms (white)
- Hot glue gun
- Tape Measure
I measured and cut a 14 inch strip of Duck Tape. I am over-the-top in love with all of the wonderful color and pattern choices available in the Duck Tape line. Next, I cut down the straws. I cut each section (top & bottom from the bend) in half. Then, I lined up the straws along the top edge of the Duck Tape. The bend of the straw needs to be in the middle of the top edge of tape.
I then cut a 12 inch piece of Duck Tape. Once cut, I cut it again long ways to make it narrower. I placed this strip on top of the lower half of straws. Then I folded the bottom edge of Duck Tape up and over the bottom edge of straws. With another piece of Duck Tape I closed the two ends together.
Bend the straws outward. Decorate with pipe cleaners and pompoms. I used hot glue to secure the pipe cleaners and pompoms into place. The finished crown is adorable!
To make the sash I cut a piece of Duck Tape to 17 inches. I folded it half lengthwise. I used a Velcro dot on the ends to keep together. I used a label maker for the lettering.
To make the torch I used a yellow bead, cap from tooth paste tube, red golf tee, and Duck Tape. I hot glued the bead, cap, and tee together. I cut a piece of Duck tape off and folded it onto itself. I cut small triangles from the tape and glued to the edges of the cape. I took and a small piece of tape and covered the triangle edges to seal it all in place.
