Step 1
Take your straw and cover it in tape (lengthwise works the best). This step is completed best if you roll the straw across the tape, sticky-side up.
Step 2
Cut several strips of duct tape - about 2 inches each.
Step 3
Sticky side up, fold one edge over itself, leaving some stickiness on the side and bottom.
Step 4
Take the parallel edge and fold it over, leaving only stickiness on the bottom of the strip.
Step 5
Roll this across tightly; this is your center.
Step 6
Insert the center piece from Step 5 into the top of your straw.
Step 7
Repeating Steps 2-4 with strips of duct tape, loosely bind the strips around the center (these are your petals). Make sure to adhere the petals to the both straw and the center piece from Step 4. Continue until you've reached the desired size.
Step 8
For the leaves under the rose, repeat Steps 2 - 4 with the same color that you used for the stem. Wrap these pieces around the stem at the base of the flower to cover up the tape edge.
