Duck Tape Crafts: DIY Deer Head Canvas

Deer head canvas using fabric Duck TapeSo here’s the deal – if you give me any kind of challenge with Duck Tape, I’m going to take it. I absolutely love the stuff. And recently, a new collection of their craft tapes was released – fabric, glitter, prism and washi tapes, all fantastic for any sort of handmade items. I got the opportunity to try the Duck Tape Fabric tape and I was all over it. I especially loved this roll of stripes:

IMG_3371Many of you know that I’m a stripe gal. I had a lot of ideas of what to make with the tape, but there was one of the Duck Tape crafts in my head that I really wanted to do with these stripes – a DIY deer canvas. I love deer heads and I’m putting together a huge collection of deer head crafts/canvases for my new studio. So this was perfect. It’s very easy to make; here’s how you do it.

Gather These Supplies

  • Duck Tape Fabric – multi stripe
  • Square canvas – any size
  • Mod Podge Gloss
  • Acrylic paint in the color of your choice
  • Clip art or silhouette to put on the canvas – I used a deer silhouette from Less Than Perfect Life of Bliss
  • One sheet of white paper – I just used printer paper
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrush

IMG_3368I really love these square gallery wrapped canvases. They have a little extra length on the sides, so they pop off of the wall a bit more. I get them whenever they are on sale (I also love square canvases).

IMG_3373Paint the canvas the color of your choice and let dry.

IMG_3374Tape the Duck Tape® Fabric across a length of white paper. Print out the deer silhouette and tape down to the front.

The nice thing is that it’s Duck Tape, so you really don’t need another adhesive if you don’t want to use one. These tapes can be used for all sorts of things – crafts, gifts, home decor . . . even taping up holes in shoes and clothing (I’ve done that before!).
