Pinterest for a pencil vase and just HAD to whip one up.
This was so incredibly simple to make and really did not take much time at all. What a great Teacher Appreciation gift, Christmas or even end of the year gift.
My favorite part of the project was the price...under $5!
Here's how I did it..
What you need:
Glass Vase (got mine from the Dollar Tree)
Non Sharpened wooden pencils (my vase took almost 2 boxes of 24)
Hot glue gun and glue
Scrap of ribbon
What to do:
I had some of these glass vases from the Dollar Tree and I knew they would be perfect for this craft
I picked up some pencils when the Back-to-School sales were going on. Though, they are always available and usually fairly inexpensive.
I cranked up that hot glue gun and put two short lines of glue on my vase.
I then started attaching the pencils to the vase, with the writing facing in.
I just kept on going...all around the vase....all the way around!
I had a few pencils left over and just left those for my best friend...I'm sure she'll use them!
I tied a scrap piece of ribbon around the vase and there you have it....the cutest little teacher gift I've ever seen.
