Are you in on the Duck Tape® craze yet?
We have Duck Tape® wallets, Duck Tape® flower pens, Duck Tape® purses. You name it, and my kids have probably fashioned it out of Duck Tape®!
So, when it became time to put up a bright spring wreath, I turned straight to Duck Tape® to express our creativity, and straight to my 12 year old Duck Tape expert for assistance.
Duck Tape® sent me an assortment of colors and styles to try. We thought the white, pink, and green would give our wreath just the touch of spring our front door needed.
We started out by making an assortment of small flowers. There are lots of instructions for making Duck Tape® flowers on Pinterest.
Next, we covered a plain styrofoam wreath with the white Duck Tape®.
Then we used a low melt hot glue gun to put the flowers where we wanted them. I really like the arrangement we settled on!
Finally, we added a pretty, coordinating bow, and placed our Duck Tape® Spring Wreath on our front door to greet and cheer visitors.
We had a lot of fun making this wreath!
The little flowers were simple enough for my 12 year old to make while she waited her turn at piano practice, and I love the idea of getting children involved in beautifying the home. It really makes everyone in the family feel like the home belongs to them if they have a part in making it beautiful.
How about you? Do you encourage your children to be involved in planting flowers or making decorations for the home?
