Duck Tape crafts to make lasting roses
The supplies you will need include
- Duck Brand® Duck Tape in various colors of your choice
- Straw, pencils, pens, skewers, or any other straight stick type item you want to use to create the stem.
To being with you start with a strip of Duck Tape approximately 3 inches long. You can measure this or just eye ball it. I eye ball it. It’s OK if it is not exact.
Fold down the one corner, leaving some of the sticky side on the side and bottom showing. Then fold the other corner down flush with the other corner.
Next roll the petal around the straw or other straight object.
Fold another petal and then line up the tips of the petals opposite each other. Then roll the next petal around the stem.
Repeat this process of folding petals out of Duck Tape, and rolling them around the stem. Just making sure to alternate where the tip of the petal lands to give a variation to the rose bud shape. Continue until the rose is as big as you would like.
Depending on how tight you role each petal and how high up will change the shape of the rose bud. Very tight rolling and placing the tip of the petal up higher causes the rose petal to concave on itself.
Rolling more loosely and having the tip lower opens the petal up and makes it wider.
For fun variation; try alternating the petals with other colors. Use one color, then the next petal be the next color. Or try changing the color every three petals. It will create fun patterns and designs.
Speaking of patterns, for even more fun try out making the rose with the new fun Duck Tape patterns! Duck tape has super fun Duck Brand® Valentine’s Day designs! Grab a few of those and make up the Duck Tape crafts. The husband personally really loves the pattern roses.
At the very end, you can then line the stem with more Duck tape or leave it as it is. To turn the Duck Tape roses into the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, you can arrange them in a vase or make a bow and attach the Duck Tape rose to a box of chocolates. Or even onto a Homemade Valentine’s Day card.
