The other day I was reading The Pioneer Woman, and I came across the cutest post/tutorial that was prompted by her daughter - Duct tape flower pencils! Have you seen all of the colors of duct tape they make now? It's insane. Even animal prints have made the cut - which makes me a little happy on the inside :)
I thought of putting together a few duct tape pens the other day (while I was bored) and I was pretty pleased with how they turned out. Seriously, if you have kids or students (or really anyone who appreciates decorative office supplies), these are a really fun project that hardly take any time at all. I suggest you follow Pioneer Woman's tutorial, because I didn't take step by step pictures. And she's really good at the step by step thing.
|I assembled all of my supplies - each roll was on sale for $3.99, and the green sheets of tape were free with the purchase of a roll. Yes, that's tye dye duct tape. (and garlic hummus lurking in the background. be jealous)|
|The finished product! (Wasn't that quick!) It was actually really easy to do, too. Just a lot of ripping and folding and sticking and repeating. Super simple!|
|A full body shot (I've been working on my camera skills, so if the pics seem a little weird, that would be why!)|
