Empty duct tape rolls: everyone has them! They are something you just don't know what to do with, but decide to shove in a box and save for later, because you just know you will find some way to use them, eventually. Well, here is a chance for you to take those empty rolls and put them to use! In this instructable I will show you how to make a gorgeous pencil holder for your desk, using two of those empty rolls. It is a fun instructable to make, and the result can be used every day.

  • 2 empty duct tape rolls
  • 1 roll of decorative duct tape (I used polka dots)
  • 1 roll of a contrasting solid color duct tape (I used green)
  • Pencils and pens to fill the holder when you are done!
Time Needed: 10-15 minutes
Skill Level: Easy

Step 1: Stack and Tape

First, take 2 empty duct tape rolls and stack them. Rip off a strip of decorative duct tape the length of one circumference around an empty roll. Then stick it, making sure the tape is covering the crack where the two rolls meet.
<p>Very cute idea. Next time, instead of making the bottom on the holder, why not make a small piece of duct tape fabric and then stick it on the bottom? Then you can have a super neat, even border where you have attached it. Great idea though! thanks for sharing.</p>
