In my spare time, I love to draw and to create fun things. My three favorite creative activities at home are duct tape art, origami, and fashion design. When I take a break from my homework, I am usually doing one of these projects.
Duct tape art is so versatile. I have made folders for school, wallets and purses for my friends, and now I am making duct tape roses. Here is a duct tape rose that I made recently.
I put a rose on top of a pen and then covered the pen with green duct tape, and gave it as a gift. I put another rose on top of a straw and covered it with green duct tape, to make a stem. A smaller red rose was the perfect addition to a black hairband.
Here is a picture of one of the roses in the front yard of the gingerbread house I decorated last week.
Duct tape is amazing and can be used for so many things. I bring some with me whenever I'm going for a long car drive, or when I'm meeting up with friends who also love crafts. We made a very tall tower of duct tape rolls at the library a few weeks ago.
