Washi tape is one of my absolute favorite craft supplies. It is inexpensive and makes decorating plain everyday items, such as pencils, super easy.

I have a drawer full of washi tape on hand at all times, but if you don’t have any washi tape at home you can pick it up at your local craft store or order some online. Personally, I like to order large sets washi tape on Amazon where I can usually grab lots of different patterns are a good price.

I hope you enjoy this easy back-to-school craft and that you have a great school year!
