This pencil pot would make a wonderful gift for your friend.

It is quick and easy enough for Kids to make. Have fun with this easy craft and make everyone notice your pencils by dressing it up.


» Empty cardboard tube or any type of plastic container
» Thin Cardboard
» Patterned paper of your choice
» Glue
» 2 or 3 Pencils

Measure the height and circumference of the pot. Cut out pieces from the pattern paper in the same measurement, the height should be slightly larger. You could use wallpaper, wrapping paper or marbled paper. Roll the paper in the shape of a cylinder with the front side inside. Apply glue on the back side of the pattern cylinder. Carefully  slot into the inside of the pot, pressing it around the inside walls of the pot. Cut darts on the excess paper at the top and glue them down to the outside one by one. Take the other piece of pattern  paper and stick it to the outside so that the edge is level with the top of the pot. Once again cut the darts into the excess length at the bottom and glue them onto the base.

Now trace the base of the pot on the thin cardboard  and cut out a circle slightly smaller. Glue on patterned paper on both  sides of this circle and drop it inside the pot as base. Cut out another circle from the pattern paper and glue it on the outside base. Now your pencil pot is ready for use.

To make the matching pencils cut out a strip of the patterned paper. Apply glue on the back side and place the pencil at one edge and roll tightly and carefully. Trim the paper where necessary. Your lovely pencil pot is ready.
