D.I.Y. Pencil Cup

A new school year always brings new opportunities. Maybe you're at a different school or discovering a new hobby. Start the year on the right foot with a brand new way to keep your school supplies, art supplies, or other important tools organized.  You can make your very own personalized pencil cup with things found around the house.

Things you'll need:

  • a clean, empty can
  • construction paper, tissue paper, or wrapping paper
  • scissors
  • tape
  • markers
  • any decorations you can think of (like glitter, stickers, or ribbon)

Use the paper to completely cover the outside of the can. Cut off any extra paper and tape it into place. Use the other supplies you've gathered to personalize your cup however you want! Once your cup is fully decorated, find some pens, pencils, or markers to put in your cup. They'll be ready for you when your next project comes around.
