Project Instructions

Completely cover two dowels with brown Duck Tape®. Set one aside.

Insert one dowel rod into the opening of a plastic bottle. While holding the dowel straight in the center of the bottle, begin to wrap bright colors of Duck Tape® down the bottle.

Before you close the opening of the bottle with Duck Tape®, add pony beads or beans, and then continue wrapping down the handle, as shown.

Finish by tying some bright-colored ribbon to the base of the handle for decoration.
