Duct Tape Rose Pen

Duct Tape Rose Pen

I have mentioned my love for Duct Tape several times in my other posts, so I thought I would share with you how to make a Duct Tape Rose Pen :)

Here's What I did:

I broke out my Red Duct Tape, and a Pen
Keep in mind you can use ANY color of tape you prefer, and there are lot's of design prints out there now

I cut small piece of duct tape (1 inch) and covered the end of the Pen

Then I cut a 2 inch piece of Duct Tape
All your Rose Petals will be made of a 2 in piece of tape

You start by folding over one corner, but make sure to leave enough sticky on the right side

Fold over the other corner, and you should have this shape as shown above
You have just made your first Duct Tape Rose Petal..Congrats!

Now you take that petal and wrap it around the pen, as shown above

Here is the side view of my first petal on the pen
Now keep making petals and placing them around to form your rose
Here is my finished Duct Tape Rose...I don't like to make mine too big, because the Duct Tape gets heavy, and it's hard to hold the pen up.  

I used some Light Green Duct Tape and made some leaves the same way I made the petals, and my Duct Tape Rose Pen is now Complete!

Happy Crafting!


  1. Nicole. I need these for when I teach someday. Wouldnt that be a great bouquet to give these to teachers? You can give them in a group! Better than a bouquet of flowers! They'd make a great class set so students cant walk off with pens.

  2. Yes you do! I will totally make a bouquet for you to keep on your desk :) I agree, they would be a great gift for a teacher..hmmm..I may just have to add that to my "Teacher Appreciation Week" ideas!


I adore comments from my readers, thank you so much for taking the time to comment and making my day by doing so.
