I admit it, I think I’m weird. Unlike some of my friends, I for sure don’t wither away if I don’t bake a cupcake (yours would probably taste better than mine too) or have a craft area. I told you I am weird. Tie in a project though with something I can’t live without like homeschool organizing and then I become obsessed.
Too, why is it that you want something when you can’t have it? I can’t really have a homeschool area now that we are trying to sell our house. I think I am just use to organizing my space normally at this time of the year. But since I don’t know what type of house (or hotel room I will be vacationing staying in) I will be living in next year or if I can even get some of the same school supplies in South America, I decided to round up some ideas for diy homeschool organizing with duct tape.
DIY Homeschool Organizing With Duct Tape
I do admit to being an Amazon girl though because I know they can deliver anywhere. A cereal box, or any box and a roll of duct tape ordered from Amazon and I can be in serious homeschool organizing business.
Look at some of these creative ideas for homeschool storage and see if you get the duct tape bug too.
DUCT TAPE STORAGE CRATE
A crate, some paint splatter duct tape and some paint and in minutes you get a useful storage container.
Check it out at Michaels.
DUCT TAPE STORAGE BOXES & CONTAINERS
Aren’t these just too cute? Craft storage, office storage or all those school supplies could easily fit in here. This could be made with some hot looking blue turquoise tape mixed with neon colored funky flamingo duct tape
Talk about inexpensive storage and to create something that you needed for an exact space, I found this on Joanns website. Click on the .pdf to download it and see it.
This project included foam board, poster board along with a few supplies and some of your time to create a nifty little organizer and this is perfect for those hard to find storage places.
A lazy susan with some buckets, bins, and some duct tape and you have a turn table of storage. This would go great on a center school table.
Check it out at Wife at Wize House.
For this next craft, any old ugly box you have on hand could be decorated to match your school room. That is important you know! Look at this safari pattern duct tape that could add pizzazz to a box.
Check out this decorated box at DIY Home Sweet Home.
DUCT TAPE STORAGE BOXES FOR DRAWERS
A few cereal boxes cut down and measured to fit your drawer and then covered with duct tape make awesome storage containers. Though she used paper in this next picture, I could easily see this in some pretty retro duct tape.
DUCT TAPE CLIP BOARD & ACCESSORIES
How easy can this be! A plain clipboard can be turned chic storage with a couple of rolls of duct tape.
Check it out at Craft Gawker.
DUCT TAPE NOTEBOOKS & PENCIL SUPPLIES
Basically turn boring composition book into fabulous by using duct tape. We have so many of those Meade notebooks that could use some love like this.
Check it out at Craft-O-Maniac.
Even pencil cases go from drab to fab!
Check it out at While They Snooze.
Another notebook design here.
Check it out at Inner Child Fun.
DUCT TAPE CLIPS & MAGNETS
I fell in love with how easy this project would be. It is popsicle sticks glued on the pin,then covered in duct tape with magnets on the back of the pin. This would make a great way to hang art or use them in your school area.
Check it out at Lines Across.
DUCT TAPE COVERED TEXTBOOKS/BOOKS
When we have to use textbooks, it could make the event more exciting if it was a bit more glammed up.
Check out the duct tape covered textbook at Doodle Craft.
DUCT TAPE JOURNAL
I bet this beautiful rainbow journal could inspire any writer. It has purple stitching along with neon duct tape.
Check it out at Kitty Cat Stevens.
DUCT TAPE ON THE GO CRAFT STORAGE
And last, but not least is this on the go craft kit. Isn’t that just swanky? I found it in Pinterest land and wished it has an original source on it, but it did not.
If you come across the creator, let me know because I am a give credit where credit is due type of gal. But I just had to include it. It looks like just velcro was used along with duct tape to keep all the supplies contained inside.
If you make something, let me know because then I can pine at what your making since I will have to wait for a while longer.
Hope you catch the tape bug. Corny, I know, couldn’t resist.
Hugs and love ya,
