DIY Duck Tape Votive Candle Holder

Last week I spent some time at the CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) Show in Anaheim, CA.  This is the largest craft show in the world!  I was lucky enough to meet up with the folks at Duck Brand while I was there, and got to check out their famous Duck Brand Tour Bus  {check out my pictures from the event on Instagram}.  While I was there I picked up a sweet roll of Duck Tape in an adorable heart pattern, just in time for Valentine’s Day!

So in keeping with my usual theme of making simple crafts, I decided to use it to make an easy votive candle holder, using a paper towel roll!

Step 2:

Wrap the Duck Tape around it {carefully} and tear the ends off.

{Tip: Tear the Duck Tape off with your hands instead of scissors to avoid sticky scissors syndrome.  It is a thing, I promise.  Thank me later!}
