DIY // Duct Tape Snakeskin Mouse Pad & Tray

One of my favorite stylists and graphic designers, Fabulous K, created a very cool snakeskin frame by wrapping an inexpensive wooden frame with “Pretty Snakey” duct tape.  So cute! You can find the duct tape at Target for just a couple dollars.

I took the idea in another direction and made a mouse pad for my desk and a tray for my bedroom.  I simply covered each item with the tape- easy peasy!

Thanks for the inspiration Kelly!

  1. wow, I didn't even know they offered duct tape in different colors/patters. This just blew me away! Also, thank you for not spelling it "duck" tape : P I saw this yesterday 2x, no joke.

  7. All these comments and not one of you is creeped out over the snakeskin? Ha ha! I'm afraid I would give an involuntary shriek each time I came near it, sort of like what happens when I almost step on a snake in my garden. Pretty imaginative for duct tape though!
