This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walmart for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
I’ve mentioned if previously. I’m cheap. i recently went on a rant about how all the cute school supplies are way expensive and the really cheap ones are plain janes.
Last year i jazzed up some of our school supplies with vinyl.
THIS YEAR i thought we would go the Duck Tape® route!
I LOVE Duck Tape®. It’s super fun to use…it’s easy…and it now comes in sooo many colors and designs
I always buy Duck Tape at Walmart. They are the best price and has the most selection…I mean look at this rack
(and they had some more in the craft department too!)
This chalkboard/dry erase frame!
I just covered the frame with Duck Tape®…making sure to smoosh in all the indentions.
I covered a piece of cardstock with teal Duck Tape® and then added some chalkboard vinyl to another piece.
You can swap out writing on the glass for the dry erase part
or putting the chalkboard piece on top of the glass.
such a great and cute way to practice those letters! (or write fake letters from justin b.)
Next up: pencils.
So easy. I wasn’t even planning on doing them but…all the school supplies were sitting there and it took less then two inches of tape.
just a little personalization! (i also covered a few notebooks too!
Clipboard: i thought this would be a great teacher gift–
i mean who wants plain and boring?
You can get so creative and do an initial or an apple or zig zag! options are endless!
and last but not least (seeing how it’s my favorite!)
a memo board!
we always have extra little notes and reminders floating around our house–what a cute and great way to get organized! and guess what? it’s really wasn’t that hard at all!
I had some wood that was the right size (if you don’t have wood you could put two foam core boards together!) and cover
Then i made a bunch of strips by folding the sides up
Laid it out how i wanted it
and then added some Duck Tape® around the edges to hold in place (you want these pretty tight!)
I took some push pins and covered them and hammered them into the board
it’s so cute! i absolutely adore this peacock!
alright ! i hope you are inspired to go make your life (or at least your school supplies) pretty with Duck Tape®
make sure to follow @TheDuckBrand for tons of creative inspiration!
OMG! That bulletin board is awesome! Love the peacock print.
I had not seen peacock feather design yet, how awesome!
Oh my goodness I love the clipboard! What great ideas. I also like the pencils. If I were still teaching then it would be a great way to identify which students stole a pencil from my desk!
I love the memo board! Might have to make myself one of those 🙂
Oh I too love the memo board!!! This would be awesome for my hubby’s office (only in a more manly design LOL!) But I love that peacock design, wouldn’t mind covering a few picture frames with it!!! I’ll be checking my walmart STATT!!! 😀
I just love these ideas, especially the memo board and the clipboard. My kids are too old for this for school, but they’d work great in my craft room!
wow! YOu made a ton of fun stufff!!! I think your walmart has more duck tape than my walmart… :o) I also got to do this post and had a blast!!

The “jazz hands” note literally made me laugh out loud.

I’m in awe. As you know, duck tape and I do not get along.
