I love craft projects that I find online, especially when they are easy ones using materials I already have around the house. I HATE it when the craft projects don’t turn out. I’ve seen a lot of Washi Tape Pencils Tutorials online, but when I tried making them, the tape ended up peeling as soon as I tried to use it. So I decided to put on my thinking cap and create a No Peel Washi Tape Pencils Tutorial.
What you need:
- Washi Tape
- Mod Podge
- A Foam Brush
- Starting at the erase end of the pencil, fit your washi tape as close to the metal part of the pencil as possible. Wrap the tape once around the pencil. I overlap the tape approximately 1/8 of an inch. Cut the tape.
- Work your way around the pencil one piece of tape at a time. Try to keep the “seam” where the tape overlaps at the same place on the pencil.
- Work your way all the way to the bottom of the pencil.
- Take your mod podge and using a foam brush apply a thin layer of mod podge around over all of the areas of the pencil covered in tape. Pay special attention to your “seam” making sure you really get the mod podge in there.
- Allow to dry.
- Use and enjoy!
These no peel washi tape pencils make a fun back to school supply. It will be easier for your kiddos to keep track of which pencils are there’s because they will have a unique look to them. Kids can also pick out the washi tape for their pencil and help with the craft.
Washi tape pencils are also a fun, artsy way to dress up your office supplies. They are a great conversation starter.
