DIY Duct Tape Rose Pen Tutorial
These DIY duct tape rose pens are great for gifts, prizes, or even businesses (so your pens don’t get stolen!). You need just a few supplies, and a little patience. Don’t forget to PIN THIS TUTORIAL while you’re here!
You will need:
Duct Tape (Use a 40% off coupon at Michael’s to save big!)
Pens (Don’t get cheap ones that will run out of ink quickly)
Cut duct tape long enough to cover entire pen (except for the tip to write with!). Wrap the duct tape around your pen, and set aside.
Cut duct tape into 2 inch pieces. Fold the right corner up, leaving a little bit of the sticky side so you can stick it to the pen. Then, take the corner you made, and fold it down. It forms a triangle-ish.
Make about 50 of these. Yeah, fifty… or so. :)
Each time you stick a petal to the pen, wrap it around. Then, move just a little bit to the side, and stick another one on there. Keep wrapping, side by side, barely overlapping, until you make a rose.
Where one point ends, the next begins. As the rose gets bigger, you’ll spread the petals out just a little. Keep wrapping until the rose reaches your desired size!
