I’ve been one giddy DIY gal since Duck Tape® began making patterned tape. The crafting possibilties are endless and it’s a fabulous material to use for upcycling items, such as the cardboard rolls I quickly fashioned into a pencil holder (above.) Just a few strips of tape around the rolls and a little bit on the bottom to secure them to each other and viola! – a cute pencil holder for a desk, ktichen counter or with a little extra embelishment, a cute teacher’s gift to fill with pens and pencils for the classroom.
I’m also planning to upcycle binders from last year by giving them a new Duck Tape® makeover, it’s the perfect material to cover up any wear and tear or scribbles. And it not only breathes new life into old supplies but also costs a fraction of the price we’d pay for new. With the variety of patterns avaialble, it’s also easy to find one my children like or to match any decor in our home.
And even some really cool full pattern sheets for decorating and crafts.
I think the mustache print is absolutely hysterical and the penguins are super cute. Either would make a fun pencil case or book cover. I also already have some ideas for possible holiday crafts I can make, too. (Duck tape is fabulous for fashioning custom photo boxes, frames, storage items and all sorts of lovely gifts.)
Finding Duck Tape® at Walmart is quite easy, if it’s not in the office supply area, you’ll find it in the craft section. But be warned, it won’t be easy to choose! I typically wind up bringing home a few rolls as there are endless uses for this handy product. It’s even quite fashionable to use closer to it’s intended use by dressing up packages for gifting or sending through the mail. Will you be adding Duck Tape® to your back-to-school shopping list? What clever craft ideas do you have for this versitile product?
