DIY pencil holder

DIY Pencil holder

when you live in a house with 3 kids and a craft hoarder
things can get a little out of control

nobody wants to share their pencils, crayons, or markers
everyone has to have their own

which leads to an overabundance of said items
I recently stumbled upon a few DIY Pencil Holder ideas I am anxious to try

Upcycled pencil holders

Darcy from Modern Mrs. Darcy shared an easy and cheap DIY that will have your friends thinking you bought your pencil holders an anthropologie! Her idea was inspired by the latest issue of All You magazine. I used to read this magazine regularly back in my coupon cutting days. I have always loved their recipes and decorating tips, not forgetting that you save enough in coupons to pay for the magazine!

Another DIY I found was from Keri at Shaken together life

Tin can organizer

seriously did she make these or buy them at pier one!
She too created this DIY after reading the latest issue of All You magazine.

Now to make hubby’s freezer burritos so i can have these empty bean cans!
