Be the Tony Stark of your next Nerf War by creating these totally awesome Ammo Wristbands. When it's Nerf or nothing, you gotta be prepared and extra darts are always an advantage. I created these fun party favors with...you guessed it, a roll of duct tape, one of my favorite party staples. They were included in the ammo pack and were a big hit with the party guests! I promise once you get one down you'll be a ammo wristband pro.
1. You'll need a roll of duct tape in the color of choice and foam darts.
2. Tear off a strip of tape to fit around your guests wrist plus a couple inches.
Mine were about 8 inches long.
3. Tear off another strip the same size.
4. Tape the two strips together to create a double sides strip of duct tape.
5. Trim edges so there's no sticky showing.
6. Now tear another strip of duct tape about 2-3 inches longer than your double sided strip.
Lay sticky side up.
7. And cut 5 one inch pieces and place sticky side up.
8. Starting in the middle of the long strip of tape, place a 1 inch strip. Place the next strip to the right leaving about a 1/2 inch between and another to the left until you have placed all 1 inch strips with a 1/2 inch gap in between Here's the part of the tutorial where I may I have totally confused you, just nod your head knowingly and copy the photo!
9. Here's where it all comes together. Starting on the edge of the double sided strip, place the the edge of the long strip (with the five 1 inch strips) down.
10. When you come to the first 1 inch strip, lay down an dart (awww I hope you see where I'm going with this now) These will create the pockets for your darts.
11. Roll over your dart and tape the next sticky part down.
12. Continue this until you have five dart pockets
13. You should end up with something like this. Trim the edges and fill with darts.
14. To adhere the edges to your Nerfers wrist, you can place Velcro dots to each side to create a easy on easy off clasp. Or use another piece of duct tape to secure the edges together. I pinned a button with our Darts Will Fly Party Circle in it for a little extra swag.
Guaranteed your party guests will love these ammo wristbands!
Let me know how yours come out!
