Here is a simple, easy way to make a pencil grip in under five minutes with the one material everyone has: good ol' duct tape! You can make an assortment of these pencil grips in no time, varying in color and size. The best part about these is that if you like your pencil grips thick, you can make them that way. If not, it's okay, you just won't use as many layers of duct tape, making a thinner pencil grip. The thing about duct tape is that it is really strong and just as good as any other material; it is cheaper, too! With these instructions, you can make a sturdy pencil grip customized just for your very own pencil!

  • Duct Tape (patterned tape works best)
  • Pencil

Step 1: Wrap the Pencil Sticky Side Out

For starters, determine the length you want your pencil grip to be. It is easier to just go with the standard width of the duct tape, but if you like the challenge, go right ahead! Take a strip of duct tape sticky side out and wrap it tightly, but not too tightly that it can't slide up and down, and not too loose that it slides right off the pencil. Remember, the sticky side should be out.

or a simpler way is to just buy a pencil grip and cover that in duct tape after 30 seconds your done
