Thrifty Thursday - Popsicle Stick Pencil Holder

Materials Needed:

  • Popsicle Sticks
  • Paint
  • Bathroom Tissue Roll or Tin Can
  • Cardboard
  • Rubber Bands
  • Craft Glue
  • Paint Brush
  • Scissors

Paint the craft sticks whatever color or colors you like.Let them dry. You cn also leave the craft sticks their natural color if you prefer.
If you are using a bathroom tissue roll, cover one of the holes with a circle cut from cardboard. Trace around one of the bathroom tissue roll ends onto the cardboard, cut it out, and glue it onto the end of the bathroom tissue roll.
Glue the painted craft sticks around the outside of the bathroom tissue roll or tin can until it is completely covered. Once you are done gluing on the craft sticks, wrap a few rubber bands around the can to hold the sticks in place until the glue dries.
Make several in different sizes. You can also embellish the cans with wooden shapes, buttons, sequins, or any other craft supplies you have on hand.
