Picture of Duct Tape Lily
This duct tape lily is a super simple variation on the classic duct tape rose. It’s pretty simple, but a little messier than the very symmetrical rose design as it requires gathering each of the petals as you attach them. It’s OK if it looks a little rough as you assemble it because the one of the last steps is to cover up all your folds with a single strip of long white tape that tightens and smooths your petal layers.

Step 1: Gather your supplies.

You will need: colored duct tape (white, yellow, green); wire coat hanger; scissors; and wire cutters.

Step 2: Make the stem of the flower.

Using the coat hanger, cut a long and straight “stem” from one side of the hanger. Each coat hanger should make two “stems.”

Step 3: Make the inner "pistil" of the flower.

Cut a 2” segment of yellow duct tape. Cut into two strips lengthwise. Repeat twice to make a total of 3 pistils. Save the 4th strip, unfolded. Fold the corners of each strip to make a point at each of the ends.

Step 4: Make the first pistil.

Take the first folded strip and wrap around the wire stem to make the innermost pistil.

Step 5: Make and attach two more pistils.

Take the next two yellow strips (with pointed, folded ends) and wrap them around themselves, unattached to the flower (you will attach them later, with that random strip of yellow left behind). With the random 4th strip of yellow tape, attach the two pistils to the pistil anchored to the wire stem. You now have the center of your flower!

Step 6: Make the petals of the lily.

Now it’s time to make the white petals. Cut a 3” strip of white duct tape. Fold the corners lengthwise to make a wide point. Make sure to leave adequate tape exposed at the bottom to attach the petal to the stem. I like to make several petals at a time so that I can affix several in a row.

Love this! I've seen roses made with duct tape, but this is so fun! I'd love to see a vase full of them. Great 'able!
So pretty! :D
