All these duct tape rose rings have been popping up all over pinterest…but they’re all just places to buy one – at a CRAZY price (in my opinion). And I couldn’t find a tutorial anywhere. So I finally just bought a roll of shiny silver duct tape and started experimenting. And then I realized that the colored duct tape is actually the brand “Duck Tape” so I googled it with that in the name – and voila! A tutorial straight from Duck Tape! Though this one is meant for a bouquet of roses, not a ring. And it was a little foggy on the details, so I made my own and took pictures! Let me know if there’s something unclear and I’ll do my best to clear it up!
1. Duct Tape
2. Sharp Scissors
3. Non-Stick surface
Cut 16 pieces of tape, each about 1″ square.
Fold one corner over, leaving a small border around two sides.
Fold other corner over, creating point at one end, leaving sticky exposed at the other.
Create 16 points. (If you’re points are a bit inconsistent, like mine, you’ll want to use the smallest points first, so that as you build your rose the petals get larger.)
Roll smallest point into a burrito.
Roll next point around center bud, paying attention to placement of point.
Keep adding points, rotating the flower as you go. Always pay attention to where the point will fall – you want them to look like petals when you’re finished.
All 16 points together. (This is the underside view)
- If you used a rhinestone ring, you’re done now! If you need to create a ring from duct tape, continue below…
Cut another piece of duct tape, long enough to go loosely around your chosen finger at least 1-1/2 times. Longer is better, you can always trim!
Cut tape in half, lengthwise. Cut other half in pieces, you’ll need one or two narrow strips.
Fold large piece in half length-wise.
Wrap longer piece around chosen finger, with the ends pointing up. Now place a piece of tape, sticky side up, parallel with your finger. (if you think you need two pieces to secure, place them in an “x.”)
Wrap ends around your finger loosely, (loose is important – these are kinda hard to slide on and off!), test it out to make sure you can get it on and off.
Position rose on top of ring.
Secure rose to ring by pressing narrow tape onto rose.
