Duct Tape Spring Vase by DuckTapeBandit Duct Tape Spring Vase by DuckTapeBandit
I just got a new computer and have yet to install photoshop and my wacom stuff so I just cropped this picture in paint lol. I'll probably resubmit when I get photoshop back on my computer.

Anyway this is another vase I made for my work (Duck Brand Duct Tape) and this one is currently sitting in their lobby. I haven't added up the hours on this vase yet but it usually takes me about 25+ hours to make one of these and I have a feeling this one took longer then that. All the flowers and foliage in the vase are made of duct tape and are my own design and will eventually have tutorials for them up on www.ducktapeclub.com. The vase stands approx. 2 1/2 feet tall.

EDIT: Just added up the hours for this vase and it took me 36.5 hours! Holy cats!

Question, the center of your sunflowers are they individual rolled petals put together? Great job!

They're tiny little triangles layered in a circle.

It's pretty... also, might you tell me how much duct tape you used for this project? if it isn't a bother...

I wish I could remember maybe 3-5 rolls of green, 1 yellow, 1 light blue, 1 black, 1 brown, 1 dark blue, and about 3 white.

i love this! i just made a sunflower out of duct tape around a pen, but i screwed up and made the petals round instead of pointed. also i have no wire so mine doesn't look as elegant and natural.
