Today’s post is sponsored by Scotch® Color & Pattern Duct Tape.

Alright folks, I’m not wasting any time here! Christmas DIYs (slowly!) begin NOW! First up, a little gift packaging love! We all know gifts look pretty schnazy when topped with bows, but how about topping them with itty bitty bows? Itty bitty bows, made of Scotch® Color & Pattern Duct Tape, and strung along a garland, to be exact! Making bows out of duct tape takes just a few minutes and it’s so simple, even the kids can do it (In fact, my niece helped me make this one!). Wrap your finished garland around a gift or a mini tree for a touch of colorful holiday flair.

Make as many bows as you’d like, then lay them in a row in your desired color pattern. Using tiny pieces of duct tape, secure each to a piece of twine, spacing them evenly. Press the piece of duct tape along one of the creases in the bow to firmly attach each.
