Cutting & Assembly

Cut a piece of duct tape the size you want. You can make it as long or short as you like. Most of mine are 10″.



Fold one side over about half way. You can also make this wider or thinner. Just make sure when you fold the other side over that it covers the edge of the first side.  Trim the ends if needed.



Slip your key ring over the two ends. There are two ways to finish it. The first is to cut another piece of Duct Tape large enough to wrap around. Then fold the edges of it over making it as wide as you like.



You will take this piece and wrap it around the folded up ends of the key fob. Trim it so it just meets in the back. Doing it this way requires it being glued in place.



With hot glue glue the ends down making sure to cover the folded over ends completely.



Another way to finish it  is to cut a piece of tape the width you want it without folding it over. This allows you to just tape it down in place with no glue and gives it a flatter look.



 I tend to prefer the folder over version but its just a matter of choice and the look you want.



Finished Key Fob Rings. Add on any adornments you might like. I glued on a gem from an old bracelet on one of them.
