Plastic Flowers for Mother’s Day?

Still looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift?

Why not flowers for the mother, grandmother, aunt and/or loving guardian in your life? While I love giving my mom flowers, they are expensive and eventually die. Flowers made from duct tape last forever!

I am a visual learner so when I wanted to make duct tape roses I needed to see it happening. This video is one of the easiest to follow.

You will need straws (I prefer pencils) for the stems and two or more rolls of colorful duct tape for the pedals.  I think it is easier to rip a piece of duct tape off a roll rather than use scissors. Be very careful if using an xacto knife and be very patient!

HINT: Stop at your library and ask the teen specialist if they have some duct tape laying around! Look what we made at CLP Hazelwood below!

Before you know it you will be making rainbow flowerswallets, bowties, and maybe even an award winning prom dress. Keep an eye out for craft programs at your local library and unleash your creativity! Mom will be so proud!
