Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:1/2 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Using a 4 inch long piece of desired color of Duck Tape, cut out a right triangle that is 2 inch wide and 4 inch long. (The colors of Blaze Orange, Sunburst Yellow, Funky Flamingo, Purple Duchess, Electric Blue are listed under supplies – but use whatever color or pattern you want!)
  • 2
    Roll the triangle onto the top of your thick wire or dowel rod to create the middle of the flower.
  • 3
    Cover the rest of the dowel in Green Clover, or whatever color or print Duck Tape you want for the stem of the flower.
  • 4
    Cut 2 pieces of Duck Tape for your large petal. Overlap them slightly and lay them sticky side up.
  • 5
    Place floral wire in the middle of the Duck Tape piece. Trim the floral wire if it is not the same length as your Duck Tape sheet.
  • 6
    Cut 2 more pieces of Duck Tape and place them on top so that the wire is sandwiched in between the Duck Tape.
  • 7
    Draw a large tear drop on the Duck Tape while trying to keep the floral wire in the middle of the tear drop.
  • 8
    Cut your tear drop out using your scissors. This will be the large petal.
  • 9
    Wrap the petal around the middle, making a cup shape. Secure with a small piece of Duck Tape at the base of the flower. Bend your petal to form any shape you want, too.
  • 10
    Repeat all of these steps until you have as many colors and lillies that are desired.
