Spring is in the air; and that means more fun crafts! Ok, really Spring doesn’t make me craft more. But it does inspire me more. And with spring that means flowers. I love new flowers! And after Easter you are going to have a lot of left over Easter eggs and left over Easter candy too. So that got me thinking; how about a fun Spring Flowers craft that will be fantastic for Easter; and still festive after Easter is over!
Our Duck Tape® Roses tutorial was such a hit; I knew I had to make another venture with Duck Tape®. I love the vibrant patterns and colors they offer. Plus it’s inexpensive; fun, festive, and they last really well when on display! But we don’t want another rehash of the roses. No; we need something fresh for Spring time! Thus I decided on a fun Duck Tape® Daisy Spring flower bouquet! The idea isn’t uniquely mine. I saw this Duck Tape® post from over a year ago on Facebook featuring the new Spring pastel colors. But I had to figure out how to make them on my own. So I’m sharing the instructions so you can easily make them too!
Spring Flowers craft supplies:
- Duck Tape®; in Spring Pastel colors – I was expecting Pastel colors; but instead I was sent a random selection of bright pink; silver, green and black. hmm….oh well; it can still work!
- A small pack of wooden dowels from the craft section
- Left over Plastic Easter Eggs
- Measuring stick/ruler, etc.
- Left over brightly colored Easter Candy
Attach the wooden dowel to the bottom of the plastic Easter egg with the green Duck Tape®. Then continue to line the wooden dowel with the green Duck Tape®.
Take a strip of Duck Tape® in the color of your choice and cut off a piece about 15″ long. Gently fold it over; but not completely in half. You still need a good portion of the sticky side showing. Make it all smooth.
Attach the strip to the top of the Easter Egg. Work in a circle applying the Duck Tape® to the Diameter of the Egg. After about a Thumbs distance I would do a little fold in the Duck Tape® to add in a little ruffle to the pattern.
Continue to attach the Duck Tape® to the Egg in a Spiral pattern; continuing down after you pass where you began until you have as many layers and ruffles as you would like.
A fun alternative is to use a little shorter strip of Duck Tape® and ruffle it around the top of the egg. Then switch colors and give the second layer of ruffle in another color of Duck Tape®.
For even more fun; lets get those small rolls of Duck Tape® in on the action! I took a strip of each one (silver, black and pink) and cut them about 10″ long. Folded them just like the larger Duck Tape® for the petals.
Then I laid them on top of each other. Then took another Strip of Regular Pink Duck Tape®; folded; and then attached the small strip at the top of the regular strip. Thus I have a stripped trip at the top of the “petals”. Then simply attach to the Easter Egg same as usual. Just another fun way to make an alteration.
Finally the last step is to place the Spring flowers in a vase and fill the Easter egg with brightly colored left over Easter Candy! Now your Spring Flower crafts are actually mini candy dishes! It’s a great conversation starter or a fun Spring Center piece!
These would obviously be a lot cuter in Spring colors; with pastels mixed in. But it will still work with just about any colors of Duck Tape® you happen to have on hand. find Duck Tape here. Also be sure to follow them on Facebook, on Pinterest and on Twitter.
