    Duck brand Duct Tape representative Kristy Kalnitzky demonstrates how make a duct tape holiday chain.

    Kristy Kalnitzky: Hi, I am Kristi with Duck Brand Duct Tape. Today I am going to show you how to make a holiday chain.

    For this project, you will need Duck Brand Duct Tape in a variety of colors. Today I am using chrome, green, and candy cane, non-stick scissors. First, I am going to take about nine inches of duct tape starting with green, and then I am folding over the bottom to match the top so it's sticky side to sticky side. Fold it in half like that. Then I am going to take my scissors to trim off the ends to make it look a little nicer.

    Next, I am taking a piece of duct tape and ripping about a third of the width off and then matching the two ends up like that. Taking your duct tape to tape the two ends together and wrap it around a couple of times. I've created another strip of duct tape with the two sides folded in half together at this time using candy cane.

    And I am taking the first loop, putting the candy cane print through that, overlapping the ends, and again taking a strip of duct tape to wrap around the ends and secure the two together. And you just continue that process until you have your completed chain.

    You can add other designs or cutouts using duct tape, like for instance, circles or snowflakes or creating a thin stripe to decorate your chain before you're done.

    And that's how you make a holiday chain.
