Duck Tape® Rounded Petal Rose
Craft Time: 1 HOUR
JUNE IS THE NATIONAL MONTH OF THE ROSE!
How better to celebrate than to have a go at making these lovely roses from Duck Tape®? You can make a bouquet with single or different colours, with rounded or straight petals.
You will need:
- Duck Tape®
- Wire cutters
- Craft knife
- Thick wire or straw
- Floral wire
- Crafting board
Cut a 12 in. long piece of thick wire or straw and cover in a single piece of Duck Tape®.
Cut a 3 in. long piece of Duck Tape®. With the sticky side facing up fold the top a fourth of an inch down and then fold over the right corner about three fourths the way.
Wrap the piece you made in step 2 around the top of the stem you made in step 1.
For the petals lay a piece of Duck Tape® that is 2.5 in. long sticky side up and place a piece of floral wire that is 1.75 in. long in the centre.
Place another 2.5 in. long piece of tape on top of the piece from step 4 leaving about a fourth of an inch of the sticky side showing at the bottom.
Using scissors round off the top edge to finish the petal. Repeat steps 4-6 to create 20 petals total.
Use the bottom sticky part of the petal to adhere petals around the top of the stem.
Continue to add petals until you are happy with the fullness of the rose.
Add Duck Tape® leaves to your stem if desired.
