Duct Tape Rose Wedding Bouquet Craft Tutorial

If you tell people that you plan to make your own bridal bouquets out of duct tape, they will probably look at you like you are crazy.  But if you make one first and then tell people what you used to make it, they won't believe their eyes!

You will also be delighted at how deceptively easy these flowers are to create.  Even people who think they have no crafty abilities at all will be able to make duct tape flowers, and kids will love the project as well.  And with duct tape available in a huge range of colors, you can easily make your bouquets to match your wedding theme colors.

the tutorial includes a link to a separate set of instructions for making the flowers.  The examples shown are used for making a ric rac rosette necklace, another great flower-themed craft.
