Duct Tape Flower

So, I happened upon a tutorial at Roberts Arts & Crafts blog on how to make Duct Tape Flowers and I just had to try it. My youngest and I ran out and picked up three rolls of duct tape (Green for the stems, black w/flames which he chose, and pink and black zebra stripes which I chose) and straws. I showed him (he's 11) how to make the petals and he ended up making 3 flowers! He wants to make more. I made 2, one for my mom and one for my grandma.They are fairly easy to make and they are really neat to have as a decoration.

Here is my first attempt at a duct tape flower. Not too shabby if I do say so myself. This one I gave to my grandma. She seemed to like it.

Here is Grandma with her flower. I think her flower makes her just glow. She looks great for 85, huh?!

And here is Ben with the three flowers he made in the amount of time that I made one. :)

Thanks for stopping by. Definitely go check out Roberts Arts & Crafts blog. They have a lot of neat ideas on there.
