I recently askedon my facebook page when school started and many said in the next week or two. My kids have a few more weeks but I’m already thinking of back to school ideas and teacher gifts! Over the weekend the kids and I made several back to school crafts that we will share with you soon! Today I’m sharing a quick and easy crayon vase to hold pencils, pens, or other school supplies in.

To make a crayon pencil vase you will need:

a can or jar (I used a small condensed milk can)
double sided tape
a rubber band

Step one: add double sided tape to the center of the can. I used American Crafts red tape, which has a really strong hold and is perfect for a project like this.

Step two: place crayons around the can – I used 30 crayons to cover the entire can.

Step three: wrap a rubber band around the crayons for extra support.

Step four: Add ribbon and twine to cover the rubber band.

How cute is that alphabet ribbon? I love the chalkboard theme print!

Are you ready for school to begin or still cherishing the fun Summer days?
