Supplies Needed

  • Duct Tape Flower Pen Tutorial

Choose your weapon duct tape pattern first!
duct tape flower pen tutorialYou'll be using one piece of duct tape about 2″ shorter longer than your pen is, and 2 pieces of duct tape 1″ wide, to cover the entire pen.
duct tape flower pen tutorialFirst, place the 1″ wide piecesat each end. Then, take the bigger piece and wrap it around the pen.

Now it's time to make the petals! Petals are just 2″ pieces of duct tape, folded: Fold the right corner up towards the top of the piece, leaving a little bit of the sticky side exposed. Then take the corner you made, and fold it down to form almost a pyramid shape.

duck tape flower pen tutorialKeep the petals even. If you raise the petals up each time you go around, the rose is going to look like a tunnel.
You can make the rose as big as you want, just make sure you stick the tape down firmly each time or it will fall apart.
duck tape flower pen tutorialKeep the petals close together. Where one point ends, another needs to begin. You can start to spread them out more as the rose gets bigger, but if you spread them too far apart it looks sloppy.

  1. That is very cool! I obviously know nothing about duct tape because I didn’t know it came in so many different patterns!

  2. These are adorable! But I must admit that I didn’t know that you could get duct tape with patterns. Cool!

  3. I love this idea! I bet the same method could be used to make some super adorable – and unique! – hair flowers.

  4. Thanks for sharing the duck tape flowers I need to try there they are pretty cool looking!
