You will need:
- Duck Tape®
- Florist wire
- Wire cutter
You will need:
Cut a piece of Duck Tape® that is long enough to cover the pen length-wise.
Place the pen on the outside edge of the Duck Tape® and roll the pen across to cover.
To make the flower centre:
Cut a 6 inch piece of Duck Tape® to create the centre of the flower and then cut the tape in half lengthwise.
Cut the two strips of Duck Tape® into squares.
Sticky side up, fold one edge over itself, leaving some stickiness on the side and bottom.
Take the opposite edge and fold it over, leaving only stickiness on the bottom strip.
Take that piece of Duck Tape® and roll it around the top edge of the pen creating the flower.
Repeat Steps 5-7 to create the centre of your flower. NOTE: You will need to make around 22-30 squares to create the centre of the flower.
Cut 2 pieces of Duck Tape® approximately 10 inches long and place them sticky side down on your flat surface.
Cut both pieces of tape in half and then cut the pieces of tape vertically so you have a total of 8 skinny tape strips.
Using wire cutters, cut a 3 inch piece of floral wire and place the wire towards the end of one of your tape strips.
Fold the top of the tape over, leaving the bottom half of the petal with the sticky side of the tape exposed.
Cut the folded side of the tape strip into a flower petal shape.
Take the petal and place the side with the adhesive showing on the stem and wrap the edges around it.
Repeat Steps 11-14 until you have a total of 8 petals.
Cut a 2 inch piece of Duck Tape® and cut 4 squares out of it. Place each of the squares on opposite sides of each other at the base of the flower to create petals for a smooth clean finish.
