This post brought to you by FrogTape. All opinions are 100% mine.
A few months ago, we found K the perfect little desk, and I have been slowly filling it with fun accessories. But I haven’t been able to find her a pencil holder that I really liked. Temporarily she had them on a small tray, but they were getting out of control. With school starting back up in just a few short weeks, I want to make sure her desk is ready for work. So I decided to make one.
Taking inspiration from the desk lamp I found on clearance at Target (Wha-hoo!), I created a simple pink chevron pencil holder. With the help of FrogTape’s Shape Tape, this easy craft came together in about 15 minutes (plus drying time).
- FrogTape’s Shape Tape
- Glass jar or cup
- Glass paint
- Sponge paint brush
Tip – over cut the Shape Tape™ to help line up the shape in just the right spot at a peak or valley.
FrogTape®’s PaintBlock Technology did a perfect job making sharp, clean lines, but I peeled off the paint. Oiy!
Once I realized what was happening, I was able to peel more carefully and preserve the paint. And with a new piece of FrogTape®, I was able to patch my hole. Next time, I will take the tape off after about 5 minutes because at that point the paint is dry enough not to run, but wet enough not to stick.
