Step: 1: This Duct tape Flower is perfect for a gift! Make bunches and bunches using stuff you have at home!
Step: 2: You will need scissors, a skewer, a straw and duct tape!
Step: 3: Take the duct tape and measure the length of the straw and cut it off using the scissors!
Step: 4: Now to wrap the straw. Put the straw on the edge of the duct tape you have cut and roll it up so the whole straw is completely covered!
