Organize your pens and pencils with this easy DIY Washi Tape Pen And Pencil Holder.
I have a pen fetish. That is probably the corniest thing you have read today, but it’s true. Just ask my husband and kids. I
like, no I LOVE, pens. All kinds of colorful pens…and markers too. Colors. It’s all about the vibrant colors. I have a tendency to hoard them…in my desk drawer or purse or in obscure places around my house. Anyway, I am on a mission to organize my pen fetish. I created this FUN Washi Tape Pen And Pencil Holder to help my get started.
Washi tape is a whole other story, because I am pretty obsessed with that too. If you are unfamiliar, think masking tape with lots of really, really cool patterns and colors. It is so much fun and can be used to jazz up practically anything. The book Washi Tape Crafts: 110 Ways to Decorate Just About Anything by Amy Anderson, was the inspiration behind this simple project.
Here are the craft supplies needed to make this easy Washi Tape Pen And Pencil Holder
Plain ceramic jar (I found mine at Target on clearance for $2)
Assorted Washi Tape Rolls
Mod Podge (matte or satin finish)
Before I began, I wiped the surface of the jar with some rubbing alcohol and let it dry completely. Now, start taping. Start at the top and tear pieces of the different sized washi tape and apply to the jar in different directions.
…keep taping. This is a really easy project. It just takes a little time to rip all that Washi tape. Make sure the jar is completely covered.
When your jar is finished, give it a once-over to make sure all the tape is secure and “taped down”. Apply two coats of Mod Podge. Make sure you let the first coat dry completely before applying the second coat.
So now, a portion of my desk is organized. I don’t foresee my love of pens going away anytime soon, but at least they look nice and organized in this Washi Tape Pen And Pencil Holder.
I received a copy of Washi Tape Crafts: 110 Ways to Decorate Just About Anything by Amy Anderson for review purposes.
