I’ve been a Duck Tape fan for a long time, so I’ve always loved their selections, but some of their new products are really taking things to a whole ‘nother level! My favorite of the newest additions to their line is definitely their glitter tape.
That’s right, rolls of glittery goodness. Glitter that doesn’t shed, and that you can add quickly and easily to anything that you can tape. Are you sold on this idea yet? If not, you certainly will be by the time you’ve seen this fabulous jewelry project! Watch the video to see how to make your own glitter tape necklace, or keep scrolling for written directions.

Start by punching out a pair of the memory game tiles. Carefully use a Sharpie to make the outside edges of each tile black; also color a little bit around the edges on the printed side of the tile, so that when you eventually sandwich the two parts together you will not have any glimpses of that surface noticeably showing. Be careful not to get any marker on the back (blank) side of each tile.
Apply a piece of glitter tape to the blank side of each tile. Use scissors or a craft knife to trim away the excess.
Add a thin strip of glitter tape in another color diagonally across one of the tiles. Embellish further with a strip of lace tape. Again, trim the excess from around the edges.
Glue the two tiles together with the taped sides facing out. If desired, you can sandwich thin items like the string of a tassel or small jewelry findings in between the tiles.
Apply a dime-sized amount of Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to the front of the pendant and allow to dry. Flip the pendant over and repeat on the other side. Also brush some around the outside edges. This will seal all of the tape together, as well as give the pendant extra sheen.
Add other embellishments as desired. Then add a bail to the pendant (if you have not already added a way to hang it) and attach it to a chain. Your necklace is complete and ready to wear – and to make a big, sparkly statement!
