Here is a unique pencil holder made from recycled toilet paper rolls (or paper towel rolls). It is also a special pencil holder for boys, because every boy is a knight who need a castle… of course 😉 Laura from Dacian Moon Handmade will show you, step by step, how to make it.
How to make a Castle Pencil Holder
CRAFTS MATERIALS NEEDED:
– recycled paper rolls
– rectangle cardboard box lid
Cut every roll in half.
Use green paint to give the cap color – like grass. You also can use grey for paved roads…
Cover all the surface with paint.
Add as many layers of paint until you are happy with the result.
Let’s give shape to the rolls.
On two bigger rolls draw battlements and one window…
… on the other bigger rolls draw only battlements. Like this.
Cut them off.
Finally, our towers will look like this.
Let’s paint the castle. Mine will be white with some black decorations.
Paint them like this…
Let them dry, then draw your decorations using a toothbrush.
Apply a layer of glue on a tower base
… and put it in its place.
Do the same with all rolls. Let them dry well.
Now your castle is ready to be populated with pens and pencils 😀
