You've probably heard of glitter glue but glitter tape is just as useful for craft and other decorative uses. This article shows you how to make it.

Glitter Glue Method

  1. Spread the glitter glue onto the non-sticky side of the tape. When you wiggle it, it should feel kind of like Jell-O.
  2. Allow to dry. Find somewhere to put the tape covered with glitter glue safely to dry. For example, you could hang if off the edge of a table somewhere away from people traffic and curious pets. Or, place it flat but if so, it needs to be sitting on a surface that won't prevent you from lifting up the tape again; a silicone sheet or wax paper are good options for resting the tape on, sticky side down.
  3. Wait about 4 to 5 hours. (If you make it before bed, when you wake up it will be dry!)
  4. Check that the glitter tape is dry. Then carefully peel off the glitter tape. It can now be used on your decorative projects.
    • If the glitter tape isn't sticking that well, put double-sided tape on the back of it. It should stick better now.
    • You can keep on sticking this tape elsewhere because the tape you used to make the glitter tape is reusable!

Loose Glitter Method

  1. Acquire loose glitter. Pour it onto a plate.
  2. Take a piece of double-sided tape and dip it into the plate.
  3. It should be completely covered in glitter. If not, dip it in once more to make sure there are no empty spots.
  4. Now shake off the excess glitter.
  5. Your glitter tape is ready to use! You'll need to use glue at each end of the tape to hold it in place on your decorative project.

Tips

  • The longer the piece of tape the longer your glitter tape will be!
  • This will be fun if you're decorating something.
  • Make sure you put on a lot of glitter glue!

Warnings

  • Watch out you don't get sticky!
  • Always cover your work surface. Glitter goes everywhere, so have a small vacuum appliance ready for the clean-up.

Things You'll Need

  • Tape, clear, good quality
  • Glitter glue
  • Something to hang the tape on (a table is the best), wax paper or silicone sheet for non-sticking
