This DIY Pencil Holder Craft with Toilet Rolls is one of the fun crafts that kids will love getting involved with. I made some of these with SV this past weekend. It turned out to be such a fun and creative project. SV was so excited to put his pencils, crayons and paintbrushes in his new pencil holder.
Kids can use this beautiful and versatile pencil holder to organize their stationary. They can keep it on the table or take it with them to school. With little decoration, you can prepare this beautiful pencil holder in an inexpensive way. It’s a great kids craft project where they learn to recycle, learn pattern and sort colors.
You need a few things most of them handy at home.
This step by step tutorial makes it easy for kids to learn how to make this DIY Pencil Holder Craft.
2 Toilet Paper Rolls
Take one of the two roll. Measure with ruler to 1 1/2 inch. Make a mark with pencil around the roll. Using a craft knife, cut it in two pieces.
Take your cardboard piece, and make two circles with pencil. The diameter on the cardboard piece should be the same as the toiler roll diameter.
With the scissors, cut out the two circles.
Make sure the cardboard piece circles fit the toilet rolls.
Using the hot glue gun, glue the two circles into the toilet rolls. Take one whole toilet roll, and larger one of the two cut rolls, join them using the scotch tape. Make sure they are sticking together well.
Take your patterned paper, and measure it with the one bigger roll, the one you created by joining the two rolls. Make sure the cut out patterned paper measures little longer in size than the roll.
Cut out the patterned paper using the paper cutter.
You have to next glue the patterned paper to the larger roll. In order to do so, measure the paper so that it rolls around the toilet roll.
Using the glue stick, paste the patterned paper around the roll.
Make sure the extra paper you cut earlier covers the edges of the roll.
Cut out two circles from the patterned paper. Using the glue stick them to the bottom of roll.
Using the glue stick, paste the patterned paper around the smaller roll as well.
Glue the circle on top of smaller roll as well.
Next comes the card stock. You need the make the inner part of the bigger roll. Cut out around 1.5 inch wide from the card stock, roll it into the longer roll. Stick it into the longer roll. This will help this pencil holder to close the upper part of this pencil holder.
