To being with you start with a strip of Duck Tape approximately 3 inches long. You can measure this or just eye ball it. I eye ball it. It’s OK if it is not exact.

Fold down the one corner, leaving some of the sticky side on the side and bottom showing. Then fold the other corner down flush with the other corner.

Next roll the petal around the straw or other straight object.

Fold another petal and then line up the tips of the petals opposite each other. Then roll the next petal around the stem.

Repeat this process of folding petals out of Duck Tape, and rolling them around the stem. Just making sure to alternate where the tip of the petal lands to give a variation to the rose bud shape. Continue until the rose is as big as you would like.

Depending on how tight you role each petal and how high up will change the shape of the rose bud. Very tight rolling and placing the tip of the petal up higher causes the rose petal to concave on itself.

Rolling more loosely and having the tip lower opens the petal up and makes it wider.

For fun variation; try alternating the petals with other colors. Use one color, then the next petal be the next color. Or try changing the color every three petals. It will create fun patterns and designs.

  1. I have been wanting to try this with my girl scout troop. Great explanation and pics!

  2. These are very clever. It is neat what they do with the colors of the duck tape that is for sure. Thanks for the great idea which would be good for anytime of the year. Pretty paper would work too but may not be as sturdy.

  51. Those are so pretty! And I love that they don’t die after a few days lol! I bet my girls would love to make some of their own. I have to show them this!

  52. When did Duct tape suddenly become pretty? We always had some in our apartment when I was growing up and it was used to hold things together (did a darn good job too!!)–I saw some of the designer rolls in the store the other day and took a double take—-These roses would be great to tape to a box of candy or put in a vase–of course I won’t be attempting this since I would probably stick my hands together somehow!

  53. These are so cute. My next door neighbor actually made me one of these recently and it was beautiful.

  54. I would use these as a pretty centerpiece for Valentine’s Day!

  55. My daughter makes all of those things too. I dont know what it is with duct tape, but it is a new craze!

  56. Amber, you are genius. I am bookmarking this so that my husband can make these for me. Best part is you can make them in any color to match your decor. What an inexpenisve way to make something beautiful. :)

  57. Wow, so creative and pretty! You are so talented, Amber!

  58. I’ve never made anything with duck tape. That is a brilliant craft, easy to do and so colorful!

  59. I haave used Duck Tape… why did I think it was duct tape? Anyway, I have used it for a lot of things, but never made roses with it. Those turned out great and I bet they will last forever.

  60. I can’t believe that was possible. That is sooooo neat. I love, love, love it! Pinned!

  61. Oh my gosh Amber! These are gorgeous!! I’ve always wondered how these are made. I want to make some pastel colored ones.
