Use Duck Tape and stick with original Halloween decor

Halloween is just around the corner, and, this year, in place of buying all your decorations, why not create some of your own using Halloween themed duck tape that glows in the dark.

This year, Duck Tape is hosting a contest with a grand prize of $1,000. “Entering is easy! Create and share your Duck Tape Halloween decor — everything from glowing haunted houses and spooky centerpieces to frighteningly fun bats and even the pumpkin on your porch — and you could win the $1,000 grand prize.

For more information, or to share your Duck Tape creations, visit or”

For a chance at winning the two rolls of Halloween Duck Tape sitting here on my desk, just email me at with a short story about how you plan to use it.

Please put the word “Halloween” in the subject line, and REMEMBER to include your name and address.

Happy Halloween (a little early)!!!
