For the girls: How to make a Zebra Stripe Duct Tape Wreath

With hot pink zebra stripes, feathers and polka dot flowers, this Zippy Zebra Duct Tape Wreath is custom made for tweens & teens. I made this wreath last year, around the time when I made my Tie-Dye Duct Tape Wreath. The wreaths were so fun & easy, I couldn’t stop! If you need a craft project for a scout troop, this is it.  What tween/teenage girl wouldn’t want a duct tape wreath for her bedroom door?

How to make a zippy, zebra stripe duct tape wreath (super easy!).

Zippy Zebra Duct Tape Wreath

To make a Zippy Zebra Duct Tape Wreath, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 12” wreath
  • Duct tape, one roll in your favorite pattern
  • Feather picks, two
  • Silk flowers, three (I used polka dot gerbera daisies)
  • Straight pins
  • Ribbon, 12” (optional)
  • Low-temp glue gun & glue sticks
  • Tools needed: Scissors; wire knippers

To make a Zippy Zebra Duct Tape Wreath:

1. Tear a 36” length of duct tape from the roll. Starting at one end of the strip, tear off a narrow strip, about ½” wide, lengthwise. Carefully put aside the ½”wide strip for a future use.*

2. Pin the wider duct tape strip to the back of the wreath and wrap the strip round & round the wreath, slightly overlapping with each pass. Pin the other end of the strip to the back of the wreath, and trim any extra tape. Repeat, wrapping the wreath with strips of duct tape till it’s covered.

3. If needed, clip stems off silk flowers using wire knippers. Glue on flowers. Trim feather, and glue to each side of the wreath.

4. To hang your wreath, you can fold in half a 12” x 1” length of duct tape and pin and glue the tape loop to the back of the wreath. Or, use a 12” length of ribbon as your hanger.

*Here’s what I did with my leftover skinny strips – I made Duct Tape Deco Spheres.

    Sharon~ what a great tut. My daughters friend from Denmark is our “Zebra” girl. She has a hard time saying zebra so this would be a great gift to make her and send home to Denmark with her. Off to find some duct tape. Thanks so much!
