I do at least twice/wk. And it’s the only thing, most of the time.
I needed something to make my keys stand out more. Maybe a lanyard? Yeah that sounded good. Do stores even sell those anymore? I wasn’t about to shop for a lanyard I probably wouldn’t like. You guessed it… I made my own.
Materials are super cheap and it took about 5 minutes to craft the lanyard. It’s surprisingly easy, too, considering the stickiness of the Duck Tape.
You should definitely make one! Follow the steps below.
- Duck Tape
Step 1: size the Duck Tape
Stretch out your tape and cut down to the size you want.
I chose a smaller lanyard, but you pick what will work best for you.
Step 2: fold it
Lay the tape on a flat surface, face up. Fold one half into the center.
Then, fold the other half inward. Make sure you overlap the edges a little bit to keep from leaving the sticky side exposed.
Step 3: loop it
Hold the two ends between your fingers so that the Duck Tape forms a loop.
Step 4: fasten it
Adhere the smaller loop to the rest of the lanyard with another piece of Duck Tape.
Attach your keys and you’re done.
