Duct Tape Flower - Step By Step Instructions
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

It is very simple to make a duct tape flower. In fact, my five year old has done it. It is a lot of fun to make duct tape crafts with your kids. This is great to give as a gift for Mother’s Day, Easter, Valentine’s Day, Birthdays or just to say “I love you.”

You will need: • At least two different colors duct tape • Sharp scissors. • One straw. • A smooth surfaced table (preferably not wood).

Duct Tape Flower Steps

1. Cut one piece of duct tape in your color of choice for the stem the length of the straw. There are no boundaries in duct tape crafting so choosing unusual colors for a flower stem is just fine. 2. Put the straw along the edge of the duct tape and completely roll the tape around the straw until the tape is all adhered to the straw. 3. Now cut a couple inch piece of a different colored duct tape that you have chosen for the petals of the duct tape flower. 4. Fold one of the corners of the tape into a triangle so that the sticky sides are together and you a small amount of the sticky is exposed at the edge of the tape and at the bottom of the tape. 5. Now fold the opposite corner down to the opposite side as to produce a triangular point at the top. Now you have the top of the duct tape flower petal. 6. Put the top of the straw on the bottom of the petal of the edge and roll the straw so that the petal wraps around the “stem”. 7. Repeat steps 3 through 6 making certain that the very top of the duct tape flower petal alternates the one you did just previously. This can be done as many times as you like. The more times you repeat this step, the fuller the flower will be. 8. Now perform steps 3 through 6 with the stem color. This will cause the appearance of leaves at he bottom of the flower.

Duct tape flowers are a wonderful project for kids and adults of all ages. You can see a more detailed guide with pictures if you have a hard time following this article. Always remember that duct tape flowers and other duct tape crafts allow you and your kids to use your creativity and imagination so experiment with different colors and don’t be afraid to deviate from the original plan. Have fun!
