How to Make Duck Tape® Roses

This post brought to you by Duck® Brand. All opinions are 100% mine.

Duck Tape® has to be one of the most versatile craft tools out there.  I've seen people make clothes, shoes, boxes and all sorts of crafty stuff with this tough tape.  I'm going to show you how to make Duck Tape® roses in this post.  This is a simple project that should take no more than an hour to complete.  All you need is a roll of Duck Tape® in the color of your choice, one roll of green Duck Tape® and some scissors.  To create these roses fold Duck Tape® in half, leaving a little of the sticky tape exposed.  Cut petals out about 30 petals in the shape of rounded triangles.  This doesn't have to be perfect, I did not use a template but just freehanded it.  You should make some smaller than others. Start with one of the smaller petals and fold it around in a circle (see image below).  Because you left the tape exposed it should stick onto itself.  Continue adding petals all around in a circular pattern until rose is the desired fullness.  Use green Duck Tape® for the bottom stem.  Repeat steps to make multiple roses.
 
These roses will make great boutineers or corsages for Duck Tape®'s Stuck at Prom® Challenge. Duck Tape® is offering schollarships for wearing Duck Tape® to prom!
