Why You'll Love This Trash to Treasure Craft

Are you looking for a fun and practical craft project that won't break the bank? Look no further! We have the perfect solution for you - a thrifty DIY pencil holder. Not only is this project easy to make, but it's also a great way to add a personal touch to your desk or workspace. Here are the top 5 reasons why you should give this craft project a try:

1. Budget-friendly: One of the best things about this DIY pencil holder is that it can be made using items you likely already have at home - like an empty tin can or a mason jar. This means you can create a stylish and functional pencil holder without spending a dime.

2. Customizable: With this project, the possibilities are endless! You can customize your pencil holder to match your style and decor by using different colored paints, wrapping paper, or stickers. Get creative and make it uniquely yours!

3. Eco-friendly: Instead of throwing away old tin cans or mason jars, why not upcycle them into a useful pencil holder? This craft project is a great way to reduce waste and give new life to items that would otherwise end up in the trash.

4. Practical: Tired of rummaging through drawers to find a pen or pencil? With this DIY pencil holder, you can keep all your writing utensils in one convenient place, making it easy to stay organized and focused.

5. Fun and rewarding: Crafting is not only a great way to de-stress and unwind, but it's also incredibly satisfying to see your creation come to life. Plus, you'll feel a sense of pride knowing that you made something useful with your own two hands.

Every month I add a new own or set of markers and highlighters that consume more space. I normally throw the old ones into a drawer and display the new sets and I need a bigger display slash organizers slash holder. This will do, I actually don't wanna spend so much money on it so I'll cover my tubes with some scrapbook paper, some ribbon and glitter and it's good to use. I love this project cause it kinda looks like the underwater shells in the movie Ariel.

I love that you used toilet paper rolls to make this organizer. Most of the ones you see are single holders or separate. These look great together, and I love that you can separate the colored pencils, markers, pens, and highlighters. I can see making several of these for my nieces and nephews and filling them up for gifts.
