On the Thursday night before Christmas we hosted a fun cookie decorating party for some friends and their families.  Even though we were in the middle of filming two episodes of “Knock It Off” I still wanted to do all of the fun holiday festivities that we normally do…I just didn’t have a lot of time to do things like umm…decorate! LOL.  I just needed to remind myself that hosting a Christmas or holiday party doesn’t have to take a ton of time,  and it doesn’t have to cost a lot!    I decided that I would make it my goal to decorate for the party with Duck Brand® holiday design duck tape. With just one roll of their fun little penguin holiday design tape, I took care of place cards, candy containers, cookie take-out bags, and a fun little pennant banner.  Not too shabby for just  some tape ‘eh?

Here’s how it all went down…

I have plain white bowls, that I accented with tape and then I tossed all the various cookie decorating toppings into them.  Easy Peasy Right?

I liked the colors in the penguin pattern tape, but Duck Brand® has a great selection to choose from if you’re still putting together some holiday DIY projects; there are holiday bows, a snowman print, a candy cane stripe, seasonal sweets and pretty holiday colors to pick from as well.

For the place cards, I used an ornament ball, leftover card stock, and then accented the side of each with Duck® Tape.  Here’s a trick… if you need to get your ornaments to stand straight on a flat surface, all you need to do is put a glob of hot glue on the bottom and then press it down onto some scrap paper.  The glue will harden flat and then you can pull it off and then you’ve got a flat-bottomed ornament.

Since we were having the kids decorate cookies, I needed to think about take-out bags.  I mean we definitely sugared them up, but we didn’t need them eating all of the cookies on the spot! I had a bunch of plain white bags leftover, but wanted to fancy them up a bit.

I cut the tape in varying lengths and then tiered them like a Christmas tree.  It’s nothing fancy, but perfect for quick party decor!

Finally, I wanted to make a little backdrop so I tried my hand at a Duck Tape® pennant banner.

Here’s what I needed:

Baker’s Twine

Duck® Tape


Cut a 4″ length of tape and place the sting in the middle of the tape.

Lastly, just use scissors to cut it into a triangle shape.  I can’t believe I haven’t tried this project before. It was SO stink in’ easy!

I set out to prove to myself that I could keep it simple, not spend a ton of cash, and decorate for this party just by using one roll of Duck Brand® holiday design tape! And I think it worked!  I was super excited about our party and so relieved that I had everything pretty much good to go!
