Start with any picture frame (mine was already covered in some white fabric).  Add in some colorful fabric and duct tape and you are ready to get started.

Tear your fabric into strips and wrap around your frame.  Cover the frame completely then use a dot of hot glue to secure the end of your fabric.

Now it is time to break out that duct tape.  We are going to start by making a duct tape flower.  You will need a small square of duct tape plus one long strip.

Fold your long strip over about 2/3 of the way as shown below.  Also as shown below, it does not have to be perfect.  :)

Gather your long strip onto your square as shown below.  Continue wrapping around and around until you run out of strip.  The longer the strip, the closer to the outside of the square you can start, and the larger your flower will be.

You will end up with a gathered flower something like this.

The back does not look as pretty but we are not worried about that!  Note that if any of your “square” peeks out around the edge of your flower, just fold under to hide it.

I also added a couple of buttons to the center of my flower.  They added just the right amount of bling.

Now we need to make that duct tape “Welcome” banner.  You will need string (I used baker’s twine), duct tape, and foam letters.
