Craft: Duct Tape Beads Tutorial! EASY

Do you remember making paper beads when you were little. Scribbled or painted paper glued and rolled around a pencil? Well, I didn't want to wait for glue to dry because I wanted to use the beads right away. I spotted my trusty Duct Tape and the wheels started turning. I know I'm probably not the first to think this up but hey, I'm proud of my creation anyway! Here's how I did it: 

Duct tape
Small Dowel/pencil/straw, something the size you want the hole to be.

Take a 4-6 inch long piece of duct tape and cut long triangles.
Use good scissors the tape is sticky, obviously, lol.

Fold up the wider end high enough so that when you wrap it around your dowel the sticky side doesn't touch it!

Like this!

Then roll! Try to keep your point in the center-ish. Any wrinkles will be covered anyway!

Finished beads!

The hole to string will go through!
Viola!! Now, go string your beads!
