Cover your stem with a strip of green Duck Tape. Do this by laying out a strip of green tape on a flat surface, sticky-side up, and rolling your stem (whatever material you are using) onto it lengthwise.
To make the center of the rose, tear off a piece of 3-inch long Duck Tape. Fold down the top about 1/4” and then fold the top left corner. Wrap this around the top of your stem.
To make the inner petals, cut two 2-inch by 2-inch red Duck Tape squares. Place one square on top of the other, leaving 1/4” of the sticky part showing on the bottom. Cut off the excess at the top, but leave the bottom alone. Using scissors, round off the top edge. You will want to make about four of these.
To make the outer petals, cut two 2-inch by 2-inch Duck Tape squares. Cut one piece of floral wire 2” long and place it in the middle of the square. Place one square on top of the other, leaving 1/4” of the sticky part showing on the bottom. Cut off the excess at the top but leave the bottom alone. Using scissors round off the top edge. Make about 15 of these.
Wrap the outer petals around the top of the stem. Don't wrap them as tightly as the inner petals. Bend the tips of the petals down a little to the desired shape.
Cut four 1-inch by 1-inch squares of Duck Tape (the same color as the stem). Wrap these around the base of the rose.
Cut one 5-inch long strip of Duck Tape. Place a piece of floral wire at the bottom-middle of the strip. Fold the top of the strip down over the wire, leaving about 1/4” of the sticky part at the bottom showing. Using scissors, cut out a leaf shape. Make 2 of these.
