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

*EDIT*
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
Here's mine! I used "floral wire" as a base - it's flexible and comes in fancy colors, so I skipped wrapping the stem.
Nice
<p>Really nice</p>
<p>Amazing. I loved making this!</p>
I used a pencil instead of wire and it worked great!!
<p>found it quite easy</p>
<p>Love it it's so realistic!!!!!</p>
<p>AWESOME IDEA!! </p>
<p>my rose</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!
Wow, those are beautiful roses! I have to try to make some like that!
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
mine look way different
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
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 :)
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)
Makes it hard to sharpen-use a pen. mechanical pencils cant be pumped if you tape over the top, so pens work well. If you can find a green pencil thats awesome, but remember you'll be taping over the eraser no matter what.
I'm building a duck tape prom tuxedo and this will definitely prove invaluable to me and my finishing touches. Kudos.
Sweet how long has it taken you so far? Or have you finished it yet?

thats really cool man--- u should post an instructable on it
yeah i know- or at least post a picture! sounds awesome!
Be very very careful with this instructable, guys. Giving your girl something like this will set a high standard for future Valentines day gifts. Yes, these are great and made of duct tape, but she's going to expect you to top it at some point in the future! This instructable will make your girl VERY VERY happy. She'll think you're the coolest guy ever. She will also expect kickass things like this in the future. *USE THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK*
hahahahhahahahaaaa at your own risk indead. REMEMBER IF YOU GIVE ON TO YOUR GIRLFRIEND OR SOMEONE YOU LIKE BE PREPARED TO STEP IT UP NEXT TIME!
You should also make Leafs on the stem. How would that look?
i love ripping tape... XD
