crayon holder

This posted a couple weeks ago on the Idea room!

I have been on a coloring book craze recently. I love them! and with school supplies on sale I thought it would be fun to make a fun crayon/marker/colored pencil holder to pair with a cute coloring book (ie…the perfect gift)

and with school starting soon these would be a perfect gift for teachers!–You could even personalize it with your teacher’s name! crayon and marker holder a girl and a glue gun diy



Here is the supplies you need:

2×4 in any length (If you scroll to the bottom you can see the variations of wood sizes!)


Drill with bit (a kit like this will give you a variety of hole sizes)


Depending on the writing utensil will depend on how big to make the hole. And measure out accordingly. Then drill.

I added some Expressions Vinyl phrase just as some added icing on the cake!
