Great for holiday get togethers, Christmas plays, and other festive parties and outings. These holly berry pins are made from duct tape and jingle bells and they will make a great gift for grandparents too!

Lately I've been playing around a lot with duct tape. I avoided it for a long time, and now I can't imagine why I did! So if you've been avoiding duct tape crafts because you think they are too complicated, I urge you to try out a few. This one is simple, so give it a go and have fun!

What you'll need

  • Duct tape (green, white, blue, red, etc)
  • 3 jingle bells (red, blue, green, purple, etc)
  • String or twine
  • Metal pin back
  • Scissors
instead of pins, you can make these into festive magnets! Simple attach a magnet to the back instead of a pin-back. They would also make great barrettes, simply attach a hair clip or hair tie instead.

How to make it

1. Measure and cut a piece of duct tape 8-inches long. Fold the tape lengthwise onto itself, sticky side to sticky side. Fold that piece of tape in half to create a crease. Lay one of the leaf patterns on the tape, lining up the flat side of the pattern with the crease of the tape. Cut around the pattern.
