So, to comfort him and his teaching team as they enter the battle zone this year, I used this cute tutorial to make them snazzy pencil holders! YAY ME! It's pretty simple, super adorable and makes a great teacher gift. :) What's that? You wanna make one?! Well of course you do!
Here's how you do it!
You're going to need a 2x4 cut into 7in blocks. You can make these as big or small as you want. I made some that were only 4in long.
Paint, glitter, stencils, and anything else you want to decorate with.
|Cut your 2x4 into 7in blocks. You can see here my mini pencil holders. Those are 4in. (Cut them however it makes you happy.)|
|Drill holes starting 1/2in from the side and then going every 1in from there. (1/2 in, 1 1/2in, 2 1/2in, 3 1/2in...etc)|
|Sand the edges to make sure you don't get splinters.|
