Ducky Decoration Additions
Because rubber ducks come in an assortment of sizes and colours, and are relatively inexpensive, you can easily add these items to almost anything. Craft a frame featuring duckies by purchasing a standard wooden frame and hot gluing tiny ducks around the perimeter, or make desk supplies more duck-tastic by gluing petite duckies onto the top of your stapler, or attaching one to the front of your pencil cup. These easy-to-add, whimsical additions will truly tie your space together.
Hand Decorated Duckies
Customise your duck additions by hand decorating some of your duckies.

Or, create fantastical ducks by painting costumes onto them or adding adorable facial features. These customised duckies will serve as attention-getting pieces in your space and likely lead to conversation when visitors spy them.
