Have you seen all the great patterns that you can buy Duck tape in now? Did you know you can make a doll dress and hat out of duct tape, too? Check this out!!
Is that not the cutest dress ever??? My good friend Jen, who is ridiculously talented, made this adorable Hello Kitty dress and hat for her daughter’s doll out of Duck tape.
Even better, Jen is letting us in on the How-To! Here’s how you can make a dress for your doll out of duct tape!
Materials you need:
- The Duck® Brand Hello Kitty patterned duct tape
- Wax paper
- Ruler or measure tape
- VELCRO® brand adhesive fasteners
To make a duct tape doll dress:
Tear off a sheet of wax paper approximately 13″ wide by 8 1/2″ tall. Cover on both sides with duct tape.
Cut as shown following these measurements:
- Body of dress is 3 3/4″ wide.
- Straps are 3″ long at the neck line and 4 1/2″ long at the armpit.
- At the armpit, dip down a tiny bit when you cut (optional).
Tear off another sheet of wax paper approximately 20″ wide and 2″ tall. Cover both sides with duct tape. This will be the skirt ruffle.
Attach the skirt ruffle to the main dress using a long strip of duct tape. You need to pleat the ruffle as you attach it to the dress by folding the ruffle over itself as shown.
Repeat to make additional skirt ruffles.
Add VELCRO to the back of the dress body and a small piece to each strap.
You can add as many ruffles as you’d like! I made one ruffle permanently attached to the dress and then made a second ruffle with it’s own VELCRO so it could be removed for a different look. You can mix and match different duct tape colors and patterns too. Have fun!
