Duct Tape Gun Holsters to the Rescue!

 My 5 year old son is such a man.
He only wants to be a part of things that are manly and tough...
and has a hard time joking around.
Don't get me wrong...he's super adorable and loves his mommy...
and can get into an uber silly mood.

But generally he is very stoic...serious...and all boy.
In the past we've made him jet packs, bandolier bullet vests, tool belts,
Bounty Hunter jet packs, and utility belts...
this time...he needed gun holsters.
He found these 2 wooden guns that my hubby made years ago for a costume party...
and wanted them to be his Jango Fett guns.
 I love to see his little mind thinking of solutions to his problems.
He was wearing his reflective running belt and tucking the guns in them...
but if he leaned over the guns would come out.
He approached me with his problem and asked if I had any ideas.

My first thought was that I could sew something...
or dad could make some holsters out of leather...
Then like lightning hitting my lightbulb...I remembered why
I love duct tape so much!
Quick, easy, cheap, replaceable, customizable!

Duct tape holsters in 5 minutes:
You'll need a belt and duct tape.

 Double over strips of duct tape to fit the desired width of the belt.
 Wrap them in a loop...tape down.
Add another loop going the other direction...

Cover the back of the tape so there is no stickiness.
 Doubled looped and ready to go!

 Make 2...if you have 2 guns.

 Slide onto belt!
 Take them out for a test drive!
I love nothing more than seeing his pure joy when he feels ultimately manly.

Quick on the draw!
And they are the perfect compliment to his Bounty Hunter Jet pack!
He looks like Jango!  :)

Linking up to THESE parties this week!
