Duck Fabric Tape® works  perfectly for wrapping wire easily and adds a fabric texture that really sets them off!

Fiskars Duck Scissors cutting Duck Fabric Tape

Begin by cutting thin strips from the tape, divided into three equal strips. Fiskars® Duck® Edition Scissors are a must-have for cutting tape without gunking up the blades!

Using wire cutters (Fiskars® Cuts+More™ Scissors or Fiskars® Shopboss™ Hardware Snips) cut five equal lengths of thick wire. You can make your flowers any size. For these, layer two different sized flowers together for added dimension, with the two wire sets measuring 25 and 20 inches. It’s good to work with a size easily divisible by five since there are five petals.

 Bend each wire into five equal parts as shown. The grid of a craft mat works well for quickly measuring the sections.

Continue with each section until all petals are formed. Create another small flower in the same manner to layer on top for added dimension. Tie the two flowers together using string to stabilize.
