How to Make a Duct Tape Rose

Making these flowers is all about the prep work. so measure and cut your first piece, about 2 ? to 3 inches long....then use that as your template to cut the rest of your pieces. Each flower takes anywhere from 18 to 24 pieces of tape, depending on how full you want it to look. Each piece of tape will become a petal for the flower so get ready to fold. I like to use a pen to hold the tape in place, then fold down the upper left hand corner, leaving a thin border at the bottom. Now fold the lower left hand corner up giving you an arrow shape. If you're making a big bouquet then you might want to recruit some friends because you'll do this over, and over, and over again. When the petals are ready you can start wrapping. With the arrow pointing up, wrap the tape around the stem. You can use wire for the stem or a thin dowel. Continue wrapping petals onto your stem, staggering the points, and building up the flower. When you've got a nice bud shape like this, you can start 'opening' up the petals. Just bend the points back slightly, then wrap the tape tight. Stagger, shape, and wrap, until you're happy with your flower. You can color coordinate your flowers for a shower, a birthday party or a holiday, like Halloween!
