Back to school is right around the corner and its time to start thinking about teacher gift ideas! Here’s a quick project that uses a recycled tin can to create a festive crayon pencil vase for a special teacher in your child’s life.
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.
Crayon Pencil Vase
- a small can or jar
- double sided tape
- a rubber band
- 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.
- Place crayons around the can – I used 30 crayons to cover the entire can.
- Wrap a rubber band around the crayons for extra support.
- Add ribbon and twine to cover the rubber band.
How cute is that alphabet ribbon? I love the chalkboard theme print!
