The adorable camera straps I see online make me drool. My camera is my baby (well, almost) and I want it to look pretty! But they can be expensive.

Well, guess what else comes in the most adorable prints, makes me salivate, and only costs a few dollars?

 

You guessed it – duct tape! 

 

I love how strong duct tape is, and how unskilled I can be to use it. This is far from an advanced tutorial and is the kind of thing you can do on a whim – and then switch out on a whim! As a matter of fact, I just got in a new shipment of prints. Do you think I should switch it again?

To switch it, you WILL need to cover over what you’ve done. Trying to take off the duct tape would be a pretty difficult task and I DON’T recommend it.

 

I used the camera strap that came with my camera. You can get a new one on the cheap too. (I’d recommend one from the brand of your camera, so that you know it’s strong).

How to upgrade your camera strap in five minutes:

 

1. Cover one side of the main part of your strap with your duct tape (stop at the fake leather ends). Trim.
