This instructable will teach you how to make Duct Tape roses, They are pretty good for valentines day and other events like fund raisers.

The original idea came from the duct tape club www.ducktapeclub.com. But their Instructions are very vague and there is only four non informative pictures, after making these roses for a year or so i have my own style that I am sharing

Step 1: Get your stuff together

What you will need for this project is:

Some time: Not a lot but at least 10 minutes
Some tape: I use Duck Tape brand Duct Tape
Some floral wire: found almost in any floral department
<p>Love it it's so realistic!!!!!</p>
<p>Perfect addition for gifts, wrapping, or stand alone greatness!</p>
<p>wow, i am Chinese duct tape manufacturer, I can offer you this kind of duct tape, my skype is jacobsuwei and whatsapp is +86 132 0390 9303</p>
<p>Using it for an art course sculpture.</p>
<p>AWESOME IDEA!! </p>
<p>My rose, Not the best in the world but I love it!!<br><br>Thanks for the instructable</p>
<p>my rose</p>
<p>hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha losers yours are ccrrapp compared to mines</p>
Thanks for the instructable! My Girlfriend loved them! 5 stars!
<p>omg those are really pretty i love the color contrast!</p>
This is my twist on the roses. The pink one is a rose that i made for my boyfriends mother for mothers day. The rest of the are pens. The really colorful one is my most favorite!
<p>woah! so pretty!i like the 2nd and 4th ones :) did you use a straw for the pink one?</p>
Those are gorgeous! Love the first one!
I think I will try this with pipe cleaner, or some springy wraparound thing, so then I can take the flower off and change pens when the ink runs out.
First one: We have the exact same checkered tape :P Yours are awesome!
Wow, those are great!<br>I especially love the multi-colored first one, it looks brilliant.<br>Nice work!
<p>i didnt have wire, and it was coming out bud like at first, but i figured it out :3 now i have a camo rose :D the girls are gonna love this!</p>
My sis is gonna love this!!!
Awesome! I'm so totally gonna buy rolls of colored ductape. haha
This will be perfect for my girlfriend for Valentines Day! Awesome!
I made mine for my boyfriend on Valentines day. We agreed to make each other something handmade since money was short. It wasnt perfect, but it came from the heart. Couldn't have done it without this instructable!!!<br><br>
It's so pretty!
Wow, those are beautiful roses! I have to try to make some like that!
Finally!-Someone actually giving helpful instruction to open up the petals-THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
I decided to make a dozen roses for the girl I am attempting to woo for Valentine's Day. I used your Instructable for the heads of the flowers, but changed the stems up - I used thicker wire and did a straight wrap instead of spiral. But they turned out FANTASTIC and I couldn't have done it without this Instructable!!!
Perhaps one thing you can do to make the end of the wire safer is bending it around and crimping the end (pliers needed for thicker wire).<br>
or you could just put duct tape around a straw and sticking the middle of the flower in the straw. thats what i do. :P
check mine out :)<br><br>http://www.etsy.com/shop/BeyondTape?ref=top_trail
mine look way different
I know a difrent,but easyer.look for SIMPLE DUCT TAPE ROSE.not in capitials
you have to roll it guys<br>
what is the board thing underneath
Its a fabric cutting board.
I did everything like you said too but it doesn't look as good as that.<br /> Any possibility of a video?<br />
Never Fear! &nbsp;I have read this and i will be working on a video!&nbsp;
Awesome!<br /> Because my roses look good but they don't look nearly as good as those.<br />
IU think it also helps if you kind of bend the petals down at the end
These roses are great. I bought some colored duct tape and managed to make a whole stack, and they look really nice inside a vase.<br><br>I also found this great website while searching up other instructions:<br><br>http://tapedcoats.zxq.net/<br><br>They have a bunch of interesting ideas, people should check them out.
My friend told us a website: mylovembtshoes.com I find the products are very generous,and suitable for fall
Here's mine :)
I really like your approach to the stem. It gives it a unique touch and makes it interesting.
this is awesome!thanks man.
I just started and i do not know what to do after step 5 can i have some help????
Nice flower making! really good :)
here it is.
Nice job looks good
This looks really cool with tie-dye duct tape...
LOVE the 'ible!
i made a duct tape rose on the end of a ink tube, the cut theouter shell of the pen to fit, then taped it. <br>
you can also use a pencil for your stem and then wrap it in duct tape (preferably green)
