Duck Tape® Holiday Poinsettia

Ducktivity provided by Duck® Brand

A poinsettia is the perfect centerpiece for holiday entertaining. One made out of Duck Tape® will not only be a great conversation starter, but it will also bring a little bit of stickiness and a lot of fun to the table!

Skill Level: 


Approximate Crafting Time: 


Supplies and Tools:

  • Duck Tape®
  • Floral wire
  • Dowel rod
  • Scissors
  • Craft knife
  • Flower pot
  • Foam
  • Crafting board


  • Step 1

    Create a pattern to use for your Poinsettia leaves. Create three or four different sizes of leaves.

  • Step 2

    Trace a variety of the leaves you created in Step One on a red Duck Tape® Sheet. Fit in as many as you can on the sheet.

  • Step 3

    Cut out the leaves with scissors or a crafting knife and peel off the liner backing.

  • Step 4

    Turn the leaves over so they are sticky side up. Place the floral wire as to imitate the veins of a leaf.

  • Step 5

    Peel off the liner backing of another Red Duck Tape® Sheet and place the entire sheet sticky side up on your work surface.  Fitting as many as you can, place the leaves you made in Steps Two through Four sticky sides down on the sheet. Cut out the leaves.

  • Step 6

    Attach the leaves to the dowel rod by wrapping small pieces of duct tape around the stem. As shown, attach the smaller leaves first at the top of the dowel rod, and attach larger leaves and you work your way down.

  • Step 7

    Continue attaching leaves until the poinsettia reaches your desired fullness. 

  • Step 8

    Repeat Steps Two through Six, except use a green Duck Tape® Sheet instead of red. Trace only the two largest leaves. The green leaves can be attached to the dowel rod underneath the red leaves.

  • Step 9

    Cover the remainder of the dowel rod by wrapping around strips of green Duck Tape® Sheets.

  • Step 10

    Roll small pieces of yellow duct tape into balls and use as the cluster in the center of each poinsettia plant. Use double-sided tape to attach the cluster.

  • Step 11

    Place a block of Styrofoam in a pot and stick the dowel rods through to keep them in place.

    Great idea! I love Poinsettia's, but never buy them because I don't want to worry about pets or small children being around them...and I've never found any silk ones that I liked well enough to purchase.
