Duct Tape Rose

Duct Tape Rose

Duct tape can do anything, right? Right! Learn to make this rose using duct tape and a straw.

What you need

1 straw
Any color duct tape
Green duct tape


If you are using bendy straws, cut the bendy part off.

Take the green duct tape and stick the straw on the duct tape vertically.

Wrap the green duct tape around the straw to make a stem.

Now take your colored duct tape and cut or rip a 2 inch piece off.

Take the right corner and fold it over to the middle, then do the same with the left. Make sure you leave some sticky part at the bottom. now you should have something that looks like a house with a colored roof – this is a petal.

Pinch the center of the sticky part and the stick onto the straw. Repeat until desired size of the rose is achieved

It will take about 15 – 20 petals. There are many colors of duct tape such as… red, pink, blue, purple, yellow, turquoise, black, white and tie dye. You can make a rose of your favorite color.

  4. i love this craft! i think that it looks really good and its fun and easy to do! once u get the hang of it you blow right through it. this is a great craft to teach kids.

  5. I usually use a straightened paper clip instead of a straw, and 24 petals is a good amount.

  6. really hard to do without pictures

  7. you can also use a pencil and wrap the petals around the eraser… thats what i do but this works as well
