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!

  26. 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!

  27. Love! Love! Love it! Guess what I'm doing this weekend?!

  28. I love these Megan!! You inspired me to cover something with this tape too- as soon as I read your post I ran out and bought a roll and covered a book. I posted about it and linked to your projects: http://inside-outdesign.blogspot.com/2013/07/making-snakeskin-book-cover-with-duct.html Thanks so much for the inspiration!

  30. Ummm...a-mazing! I love this! I am going to feature it tomorrow in my [so cheap, so easy] series. I'll link back to your original post. Thanks for the idea!!

  31. How neat! It never crossed my mind to make my own mouse pad because we are losing ours. Or if it's one of the cloth ones they end up peeling and we're left with the that sticky rubber part. Will try this.
