Duct Tape Bullwhip Looks Cool, is Just Dangerous Enough to be Fun

Geek Culture


We got a cool nudge from Cindy Hopper, via our main man Chris, pointing to an awesome DIY post on her website demonstrating how to make a great Indiana Jones-style bullwhip at home from brown duct tape.

You will need:

  • 1 roll of brown duck tape (we found this at Wal-Mart) cut into 3- 12 foot lengths
  • 10″ piece of 3/8″ wooden dowel rod
  • a foot or so of twine for the “popper” if desired

Begin by placing two chairs 12 feet apart.  Place three strips of tape between the chairs.

Check out Cindy’s blog for the rest of the instructions.  And watch out, you could cause a welt with that thing!
