Tin Can Pencil Holder
Find a place for pencils, pens, and art or writing supplies in a custom pencil holder. This upcycled craft reuses a tin can you already have on hand!
1 Pick a coloring page from the coloring book. Turn page to landscape format. With pencil, mark tin can height on coloring page. Cut along line using scissors.
2 Color and shade coloring page with colored pencils.
3 Create glue mixture by adding equal parts water and glue in a mason jar. Twist on lid and shake until well combined.
4 Use paint brush to apply glue mixture to the entirety of the non-colored side of the coloring page. Wrap glue-side of coloring page around tin can, then apply more glue mixture to the seam and overtop the coloring page.
5 Dry 2 hours, then fill with pencils, pens, paint brushes, and supplies.
