DIY Washi Tape Pencils


As someone who works at home chic stationary are a must as it makes working in my office all the better. Plus who can turn down having an affordable patterned pencil? I know I certainly couldn’t, and this wasn’t simply because it matched the herringbone skirt I happened to be wearing.

Make your own DIY washi tape pencil and use up some of the decorative tape you have been stockpiling , it couldn’t be easier and the end result is ultra glam.



  • Pencil
  • Washi tape
  • Scissors



Cut a piece of tape that is length of the pencil and place it over one side of the pencil from the end of the eraser to where the pencil has been sharpened.


Firmly press down wrapping the tape around the side of the pencil. Repeat this process on the other side, with two pieces of tape you will cover the entire pencil.


Here are a close up of my new herringbone pencils that you can sharpen just like a normal pencil, there is no need to tear off the tape before you sharpen.

    Wow! This DIY is SO simple but yet SO ingenious! I’m definitely going to have to give this project a try and give my pencils some sass.

    Pencils with sass, love it! Give it a go, I’ve decorated all my pencils in my pencil cup to match and it looks so epic.
