If you love One Direction or your daughter loves One Direction this would be a great project to do with her or a great gift to give her. In this step by step tutorial I will be showing you how to make these beautiful One Direction Flowers.
Step 1: Materials
To begin with you need to gather your materials. You will need the following materials.
- One Direction Duct Tape (The brand I'm using is Duck Tape)
- A Ruler
- A pair of scissors
- A few straws
Step 2: Starting the Flower
First, you will want to begin with cutting the tape 5 1/2 inches long. You will then begin wrapping the tape around the straw.
Step 3: Preparing the Tape
Start by cutting 6 inches of tape and then lay them on the table you are working on. Repeat this step until you've got your desired amount of tape strips.You will then grab a strip of tape and cut it in half. After you are done cutting all your strips of tape in half you can begin making petals
Step 4: Making the Petals
To begin making petals you need to pick up one of this pieces of tape you just cut. You will then fold one sticky side to the other sticky side. After you do that you will still have a little bit of a sticky side so you will have to do that to the other side. When you are done your petals should look like a house. Do this to all your pieces.
Step 5: Making the Flower
Now you will pick up your straw. You will then take a petal and start wrapping it around the straw. Do this until the petal wraps all around the straw. Now get your second petal and wrap it around the space that the first layer didn't cover up. You will keep doing this each time you add a new petal and each time you do a new petal put it a little bit higher. If you put the petals to high it will make it look skinny and it will look deeper. If you don't move the flower higher at all the flower will look very flat and wide.
Step 6: Finishing the Flower
You will keep doing step five until you have no more petals. Look at your flower and decide do you like it the way it is or do you want to add more. If you want to add more cut more strips just like you did in step three. After you have gotten it to look the way that you want it cut 1 inch of tape and wrap around the end of the flower petals.
Step 7: Finished
You are finally finished with your flower. Now you have a beautiful flower you can use to decorate with.
