Picture of Duct Tape Cordage

Cordage has been used for centuries all around the world. It is a simple way of making a strong rope that can be used in a wide variety of ways. The method I will show here is usually used to make natural cordage out of bark or grass, but this duct tape rope is a little different. It comes together much quicker and very strong and flexible.

You really only need a roll of duct tape for this project. If you don't like tearing the tape yourself, you could use some scissors, as well.

Start by tearing a strip of tape. I don't really like to make these any more than 1 foot long. Longer than that, and they get hard to work with.

Tear this strip in half so you have 2 thin pieces.

We had to make a rope like this and managed to pull a horse trailer out of the mud with it, they can be pretty strong! :)
