Updating drab school supplies with Duck Tape® PLUS $100 Walmart gift card giveaway!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walmart for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
I know many of you already have kids that have headed back to school.
Not us.
We still have more than three weeks of summer left and we are not rushing it!
However, all of the stores are overflowing with school supplies which has my kids thinking that it's time to restock.
I was with my daughter in Walmart the other day, and we saw this great display for Duck Tape®.
Did you know you could buy so many different prints and patterns of Duck Tape®?
My tween daughter is heading to middle school and is very artsy and creative.
She loves bold prints and patterns and immediately fell in love with the chevron Duck Tape® and coordinating green and pink rolls.
We bought a few school supplies and scrounged a few that we had at home that were still in good enough condition to use for another year.
So plain and boring, especially for my artsy middle schooler.
We started glamming up these same old same old composition notebooks.
Three rolls of Duck Tape®...three notebooks with endless possibilities!
It was so easy, you don't need a tutorial, but I will show you one of the steps in the process as we took tape and covered the outer cover.
Next up, we tackled the boring clear clipboard.
We started covering it with tape in the same way we covered the notebooks.
The problem with clipboards is that they have the metal top that makes it difficult to work around.
But it was no match for Duck Tape®!
The tape molded easily around and cut clean.
Because I have two boys, my pencil stash had some skull covered mechanical pencils in it.
They just weren't cutting it for my daughter so we covered those in Duck Tape ® too!  
Nothing is safe!!!
I just removed the top of the pencil and the lead 
and measured out a piece of tape the length of the pencil that I wanted covered.
Amazing new coordinating pencils you would have never guessed were covered in skulls before!
I love using what I have to make something awesome!
My daughter and I had so much fun making all new school supplies with some new {and old} items.
She ended up with a chevron Duck Tape® binder, notebook, clipboard, three composition notebooks, a pencil box, pencils and those bows?  Those are coordinating magnets for her very first locker!
All it took was a little Duck Tape® and less than an hour.
Those school supplies went from a boring before to a fabulous after, just in time for my artsy tween daughter to start middle school!
Instead of reaching out for those overpriced overdecorated school supplies, let your kids get creative this year.  
Save money!
Use what you have or stock up on the cheaper boring stuff and let your kids give their back to school supplies a fun makeover.
Did you know you can buy Duck Tape at Walmart?
You can!
And you can stock up on all your favorite back to school supplies, Duck Tape® and more with a $100 Walmart gift card!  
That's right, it's giveaway time!
Just leave a comment on this post stating what kind of Duck Tape® back to school craft you would make if you won the gift card.
The giveaway will close in one week and the winner will be announced on my Holy Craft Facebook page, so make sure you are a fan!

I think a covered plastic pencil/storage box would make my daughter's day. She didn't like any of the boxes we saw today, but I bet she could find some super-cute tape to cover one in. Thanks for a great giveaway!!

I like the notebooks and I would also let my kids personalize binders with duct tape to store their completed work sheets throughout the year.

I would definitely fix the boring folder problem, also my younger cousin used duck tape on the straps of his backpack to add a pop of print, it looked really nice.

No one in my house is going to school this year, but my husband uses the little notebooks and I'm thinking they'd be cool in a more manly print. :) Perhaps if he had some uniquely covered pencils, people would stop stealing those as well!

Carolyn said...

I would love to decorate some notebooks and maybe a pencil case for my nephew to go back to school with. He would have so much fun with this!

MaryBeth said...

We"ll be making picture frames on binders to affix the photos we have of the cuties from One Direction!

Our oldest is Duck Tape crazed! I have to admit I am just as big of a fan. Her favorite roll to date is the exact chevron you have featured :)
We used some DIY duct tape labels in labeling her supplies this year but you've provided me with some add'l ideas. Enjoy the remainder of your summer with the kids!

Michelle J. said...

Duck tape hair bows would be fun for my daughter!
