    Love this Julie. Those spacer beads are fantastic. I’ve seen all that cool decorative duct tape in Walmart. My Mom and I were trying to figure out what we could do with it. I didn’t think of this at all!!

    who knew?!? Julie, i’m amazed at everyone’s repurposed pieces…but I espeically love the duck tape creation. Way cool (at our house, I always say “give my hubby a roll of duck tape and a hammer and he can fix anything”…guess i’ll have to lay claim to my own duck tape. Great idea!!
