DIY Pencil Holder

Jun 23

It may be my architecture background, but I absolutely love colored pencils. I keep an over-priced set at my desk for sketching and doodling so I fell in love with this DIY pencil holder shared by Andrea of Strawberry Chic. You can bet I’ll be making one of these as soon as I can score the perfect piece of salvaged wood to make it happen. Of course, you can use this for more than just colored pencils – all of your pens and pencils would be happy hanging out deskside in a pretty holder.

Supplies –

  • Hand saw
  • Small slice of wood either from a large branch or tree base (mine is a piece of poplar about 6″ in diameter)
  • Drill (with a drill bit size of about 7/16″)
  • Sand paper

Step 1. Using a hand saw, carefully cut your wood piece to the desired height.

Step 2. Drill holes into the top of your wood piece. You can drill in a pattern or randomly.

Step 3. Sand down the edges and add pencils. (It’s that easy!)
