Making a Duct Tape Rose

July 26, 2006

Do you have a special occasion coming up? Does your sweetheart have hay fever? The perfect solution for you: Make him or her some duct tape roses. Not only are they very pretty, but they will be nice looking in your favorite vase for a lifetime! Duct Tape Rose - purple tape rose


Items Needed:

  1. Cut several squares of duct tape, about 2 inches X 2 inches.
  2. With the sticky side up, fold one top corner down on itself. Leave a sticky edge on the side and bottom.

  4. Take the opposite top corner and fold it down, leaving only a sticky edge on the bottom. (Do steps 2 & 3 with all your squares.)
  5. Take one of the pieces of folded duct tape and roll it, sticky side in. This tightly rolled "pedal" will be your center.

  7. Take the remaining "pedals" and loosely stick them to the center. (If you run out of "pedals" that you have folded already, but do not feel your rose is big enough, just make additional "pedals" to stick on.) Stop when you are satisfied with the look of your "rose".
  8. Take a piece of the dark green duct tape that is the same length as your drinking straw and roll it onto the straw. This is your "stem".
  9. Take a rectangular piece of the dark green duct tape and attach your "stem" to your "rose".

Even though this craft is difficult, my 5 year old had a great time making a rose (with minimal help). The rose didn't turn out perfect, but she felt it was beautiful and felt a great sense of accomplishment. Duct Tape Rose


This would be a wonderful activity to do with young adults.


Time to complete one rose was about 45 minutes.
