I’m instantly drawn to the washi tape every single time I walk down that aisle. No matter how hard I try, I can’t resist all those colorful little rolls of tape! Luckily, there are a ton of great ways to use washi tape. Since it’s almost time to head back to school, I want to show you how easy it is to add some color to boring #2 pencils. These DIY washi tape pencils are easy to make and sure to brighten any day at school.
- washi tape
- pencil sharpener
Sharpen the pencil and then cut a piece of washi tape the same length as the pencil. Wrap the washi tape around the pencil. Since washi tape is super forgiving don’t worry if it ends up crooked or bumpy. Just peel the washi tape off and reapply it until it is nice and even.
Depending on the width of your washi tape some of the pencil might still be exposed. Cut another strip of washi tape and cover it up just like you did before.
Sharpen the pencil so the washi tape near the tip of the pencil is nice and even.
Now wasn’t that easy? I couldn’t resist picking up this sequined pencil pouch I found in the Dollar Spot. It’s the perfect place to hold these pretty washi tape pencils.
