Duck Tape® is a much-used product around our house! We use is for all sorts of reasons, but one fun and favorite reason is for crafting. I have seen many people do really cute projects with colorful Duck Tape® and so I was really excited when Duck Tape® challenged me to create an item, out of Duck Tape® for Prom as part of their Stuck at Prom® campaign!
A craft. For Prom. Out of Duck Tape®.
I was totally up for the challenge!
After a lot of thinking, I decided that I wanted to make a Boutonniere and Corsage for prom out of Duck Tape®! How fun would that be!?
Duck Tape® comes in so many amazing colors and patterns; over 140! It was really hard to choose which ones to use!
To make a Rose Boutonniere out of Duck Tape®, you will need:
- Duck Tape®
- (1) Plastic Drinking Straw
- First you will cut the straw. Go ahead and cover your straw in a piece of Duck Tape®.
- Next you will cut several square-ish shaped pieces of Duck Tape®. These will be your rose petals.
- Fold one corner of Duck Tape® over then fold the other corner over making a point.
- Next start wrapping your pointed pieces of Duck Tape® around your straw.
- Add as many rose petals as you like until the rose is as large as you want it to be.
- Then cut a large piece of Duck Tape® for your leaf. Fold this in half, sticky sides together. Cut a leaf shape out of this.
- Wrap your leaf around your rose and secure! And voila, you have a Duck Tape® Rose Boutonniere!
Rolled Flower Corsages are almost as easy to make as rose boutonnieres!
To make a Corsage out of Duck Tape®, you will need:
- Duck Tape®
- Corsage elastic band or ribbon
- You will start by cutting several large pieces of Duck Tape® and folding them in half, sticky sides together. Cut leaf shapes out of the folded Duck Tape®.
- Fold your leaves in half lengthwise to give the Duck Tape® leaf a little dimension.
- Attach your leaves to a corsage backing or a ribbon long enough to tie around your wrist.
- Next, using large pieces of Duck Tape®, twist the tape while rolling it into a spiral shaped flower. Begin in the middle and continue until your rolled flower is as large as you want it to be. If you do this on top of the back of another sticky piece of Duck Tape® your rolled flower will stay secure!
- Create as many flowers as you like for your corsage and attach the flowers to your leaves.
The boutonniere and corsage only took about 10 minutes each to make. This was a really simple craft and pretty fun too!
Do you know any teenagers who would ditch the traditional flowers in lieu of Duck Tape® flowers for prom?
