DIY Duct tape dog leash

For this fun idea you only need three things. They include, duct tape, a leash hook, and scissors. Be sure to measure your tape and leash hook before you start as they all come in different sizes. Note: these leashes have not been tested on dogs that pull. use with caution 

  1. Cut a length of tape 60 inches long (152.4 cm for those of you over seas or anywhere that isn’t the US)
  2. Lay the tape on a flat surface, sticky side up.
  3. Seeing that you have already measured the leash hook, fold one side of the duct tape to match the length of the leash hook (the part that connects to the leash, not the end that connects to the dog) and make sure there are no bumps.
  4. Repeat step 3 with the other side that you have not folded in to the middle.
  5.  Insert one end of the duct tape into the leash hook and fold it back at least 2 inches (5.08 cm).
  6.  Cut a 3 inch (7.62 cm) piece of duct tape and place it over the fold that you made in step 5
  7.  Flip over the leash so the sticky side of the 3 inch (7.62 cm) piece of tape is up and seal the edges making sure to line up the patterns if you have one on your tape.
  8.  create a loop at the other end of the leash for your hand. and repeat steps six and seven for this loop.
