How to make duck tape flowers { $200 Michaels Giveaway} CLOSED

Surprise Me!

Making duck tape flowers couldn’t be more easy and now we are going to have the prettiest flip flops in Kansas!

Duck Tape Flower Tutorial

All you need is colored Duck Tape and scissors. Not just any scissors though! Can I tell you I have fallen in love with these non-stick scissors from Westcott. They are amazing and make this project a breeze!

Begin by cutting 3 pieces of tape about 14 inches long each. Also cut one circle, as big as you can using the entire width of the tape.

Fold the three pieces of tape almost in half — be sure to leave a sticky edge of about an 1/8th of an inch on each strip. Next, cut the folded strips of tape along the folded side every 1/4″ or so. The last strip can be cut every 1/8″.

Place circle sticky side up. Start by sticking folded duct tape strip sticky edge down around the outside edge of the circle.

Continue sticking strip until the end of strip.

Begin with next strip, each round moving toward the center of circle.

Continue sticking strips.

Roll the end of the last strip and stick into the center of the flower.


Gather some flip flops (we are going t make our old pair new again) , floral wire, duck tape and scissors.

Cut two pieces of wire about 4 inches long and two small rectangles of duck tape.

Tape the wire to the back of the flower.

Cut strips of duck tape in half lengthwise. Wrap the tape around the flip flop catching the wire to attach the flower to the flip flop.

Repeat for other flip flop.

Michaels has a great selection of Duck brand duct tape. You can find a huge array of different patterns, colors, and prints!
