3rolls of empty duct tape
cardboard or something
a water bottle
The trick is to make the handle long enough to drape over your shoulder. Pull the entire length of the color you want in the MIDDLE of the handle, carefully, and put on your surface sticky side up. Starting in the middle-ish, fold tape in half, working the tape as smoothly as possible towards either side until it is completely folded.
Take an 18″ strip (or so) of the color you want showing on the outside and trim the ripped edges with your knife. Turn sticky side up. Then, starting on one end, lay the folded handle down the center of tape and fold up edges.
Pull a strip of clear tape, about 10″. Carefully string your first roll onto the tape, with the cardboard against the non-sticky side. Carefully add the other two in turn, lining them up and then pressing the sticky side down so they are stuck together. Trim fairly close to the rolls so you don’t have a bunch of tape flapping around.
Take a 10″ piece of clear tape and stick your handle to it–striped side UP (the solid color is now stuck to the tape.) Next to your first clear strip, but not overlapping, carefully tape the handle to the cardboard, keeping the 3 rolls lined up. Repeat for the other side.
Cover all remaining cardboard with clear tape so it won’t fall apart with the inevitable condensation from your bottle. Trim all clear tape against the rolls so there is no overhang.
Take two strips (4″) of tape and trace around an empty roll. Cut out the circle, right on the line. Then take three strips (4″) and trace around a partially used roll of duct tape. (the white roll on the left hand side was the one I used.) Cut out the second circle.
Flip larger circle sticky side up. Carefully center smaller on larger circle and stick-sticky sides together.
Cut “fringe” from the smaller circle out, about 1/4″ apart. Remember that the closer they are together the smoother it will lay.
Carefully place waterbottle on small circle, then press fringe up onto bottle to attach.
