DIY Teacher Gift: Pencil Holder
Looking for a great teacher gift that won't cost you a fortune? If you ask, kids and teachers will tell you that the most coveted item at school is a pencil. Pencils so are easy to lose and often fall victim to pencil fighting or the sharpener.
Before you know it, all of the pencils have vanished. Below is a quick tutorial on how to make this cute pencil holder.
You can also use this can idea for: dry erase markers, rulers, erasers ... anything you think your teacher would lend out to students.
- Pencils (the more the merrier)
- Upcycled & cleaned food or soup cans
- Full sheet label & free printable template to wrap around the can (cut to size)
- Small rectangular labels & free printable template to wrap around the pencil tops
Print and cut the full sheet label to fit the size of your can, apply.
Print the pencil labels and peel from the sheet, wrap around the tops of your pencils.
Tie a ribbon around the pencils and place in the can. Add red shreds on top to make it look finished!
We hope you child's teacher loves this gift as much as we do. Best of luck crafting and have a wonderful school year!
Extra Credit: If you really want to please your child's teacher, sharpen the pencils and give them a sheet of the printable templates so they can label any other items in the classroom!
