Crayola Pen Holder Tutorial. Inexpensive Teachers Gift Ideas

Teachers Gift Idea:
Crayola Pen(cil) Holder Tutorial

Do you need a last minute Teachers Gift but have no idea what to do? That's what happened to me today when my daughter informed me that today was her teachers last day. I had to think on my feet and create something inexpensive but creative, so I came up with this Crayola Pen(cil) Holder.

Supplies Needed to Make Your Own...
  • Glue Gun & Glue Sticks (or Mod Podge)
  • Fabric or Paper
  • Scissors
  • Small Empty Can (I used a Peas Can)
  •  28 Crayons
  • Ribbon
You probably already have all these items at home!

~How to make a Crayon Pencil Holder~
Step by Step Tutorial  

1. Wash out your peas can and remove the label.
2. Let can dry

I used a Peas Can because it was shorter than a corn or green bean can. You want your can a little shorter then your crayons.

3. Cut, wrap, and glue fabric or paper around your can.

I used a colorful rainbow fabric, but it was pointless. Your crayons cover the whole can. I recommend just plain white computer paper.

You may even not have to wrap your can in paper or fabric. I did just to make sure the crayons would stick better. I do not know how easily the crayons would come off a metal can. Crayons glue to paper very well.

4. Glue your Crayons to the can. Make sure you glue your crayola on straight.

 It took 28 Crayons to cover my can.

5.Wrap around and glue down your ribbon.  

6. Make a simple bow.

Simple and Cute!
