Wednesday Wonder- I love duct tape

In the early 80’s we were driving to a how in Orange county and we saw a car
that had duct tape all over it. Everything on this car was duct taped together.
As we got closer there was a bumper sticker and it said “I love duct tape”. I
thought it was awesome. It was creatively done and even the bumper was taped
on!

My youngest daughter, who has always been a trendsetter, duct taped her whole
back pack, it looked great.

It was amazing how many kids started doing stuff like that to their school
supplies.

I loved it and her back pack was indestructible and almost waterproof, saved
me money too!

Now there are all colors and prints in duct tape. I so want to buy them all
every time I see them.

There are even How to books totally devoted to duct tape.

This my friend is a non-traditional art medium.

There are also all kinds art being made with duct tape

sportcoat for Red Green. He promptly said it was “the ugliest thing he had ever
seen” and auctioned it off at a public television fund raiser. It brought $1000.
(Heck, it was worth at least $2000!)
