Decorating Picture Frames Using Creative Duct Tape

My children enjoyed the ease of personalizing these picture frames using creative duct tape. These colourful picture frames would be wonderful to give as gifts or use it to decorate a room. This is an easy activity to do and will be enjoyed by children and adults.

For this craft we used...
Decorative duct tape
Wooden frame kit from a craft store or an old frame
scissors or precision knife
craft mat
First clean the surface of the wooden picture frame. 
Then measure and cut the duct tape to cover the sides of the wooden frame. It is better to cover the length side of the picture frame first and place it before cutting the piece for the wide side.
When cutting the duct tape and placing it, we have to do this slowly to prevent the duct tape from sticking together and making sure we place it straight.
I measured and placed the duct tape with the sticky side up and used a precision knife to cut the duct tape.

We can use similar techniques to decorate other items around the home such as framing mirrors, decorating notebooks and more.
