Learn to Make an “Easter Egg Duct Tape Flower

#TBCCrafters Hop

I can’t believe it’s already April – crazy!! I guess when you live in a place that seems to never have had a winter this year, it’s weird to already be dealing with Spring.  I saw this craft on the Duck Brand site and figured it would be fun to do for Easter time.  They did it a little bit different.  With the way they instructed, I didn’t like how it turned out for me, so I changed it up a bit.

My husband leads the A/V Ministry at church and he’s already been getting ready for the Resurrection Celebration with them.  I know he usually plans weeks before, but when I realized it was already April and we’re getting ready to celebrate our Lord I figured it would fun to do a flower craft to celebrate the Lord’s life.  Just like the sweetness of when you open the “egg”, our Lord is full of great rewards for those who open their hearts and ask Him in.

I hope you like it!! Have a blessed day, and please be sure to comment on and share this #TBCCrafters craft!!

Easter Egg Duct Tape Flower” Craft

Materials/Tools Needed: 

  • 1/4″ Wooden Dowels
  • Duct Tape (Green & Colors of Your Choice)
  • Easter Eggs
  • Candy
  • & Time!




Start by creating your “stems”.  I bought some long dowels from Walmart and just cut them into 12″ pieces.  Then lay them on the green duct tape…lengthwise turned out to be easier.  Cut the tape at the very end and roll them up to make them covered.  These were very easy to do!


Next, begin making your flower petals.  I had my son help me, so that is the “model” in my pix. 🙂  Cut pieces of the colored duct tape in about 2-3″ pieces.  Then fold one corner over, leaving a bit of space on the edge.


Now, fold the other over to create the petal shape.  I was worried at first about having too much at the bottom of some pieces, but no worry, you have to cover the bottom of the egg anyway, so the more the better.  At first, I had to cut more small pieces to fill in the rest.  After I made these a bit longer than the 2″ I started with, it covered more of the egg by itself.


When you get some petals made up, start attaching them to the long part of the plastic egg.  How far apart, and how many you use is completely up to you.  I went for the “tulip” style, but I’m sure if you did multiple layers and bent them out more, you could get a more “rose-like” ending.


Now, using some thin strips of the green tape you used for the dowels, start to attach them tips to the bottom of the eggs.  It takes a few pieces and just make sure you secure it and make it tight, so that it will stand up.


Next, fill the eggs with some candy or whatever you decide to put in them.  The one on the Duck website left these cups open, but I figured that the candy would be places that I didn’t want it to be, so I just put the top of the plastic eggs to secure the candy in them.


Once you have all of them full – depending on how many you are making – you can put them in a vase or however you want to display them.  Bring some Spring to your home and for those of you who are sick of the snow (LUCKY!!) make it feel like the flowers are blooming!


I sure hope you like it!  Please take a minute to leave me a comment and let me know what you would do different, or what you would add, etc.  Be sure to tweet, pin, share, etc. – thanks!!
