Back to School  DIY Craft- Washi Tape School Supply Holder

1. Small metal container with plastic lid. We used a baby formula container. Something similar is ideal!

2. Assorted washi tape


You can find decorative washi tape at your local dollar store, craft store, and retail store. It comes in so many colors and designs, so choose some that work for you and your tastes. Feel free to try an assortment that compliments each other!


1. Begin by washing and drying your container well.

2. Start wrapping the container with washi tape. Start at the bottom creating a strip, and then work your way towards the top. You can alternate colors and designs as you do, or begin by covering the entire container in one pattern as we did.

3. Add your accent washi tape. We wrapped an accent around our container just to add some interest and color. You can never have too much color!

4. Place the lid back on your container. Take scissors and pierce the lid, making slits for supplies to go into.

5. Place your supplies directly in the slits. The slits will hold them in place and keep them from knocking into each other. If you want, you can glue the lid on, but that is not necessary. You can always store small items in the container if you wish.

Now just set your back to school supply container (aka your very own DIY craft) out where you can easily access the school supplies. A counter top, desk, or even locker is the perfect place for it.  It is sure to help you stayed organized for less for Back to School season!
