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!
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.
You can paint and decorate these any way you want–or even have kids help! I painted half and stained the the other half.
I added some Expressions Vinyl phrase just as some added icing on the cake!
Pair it with a cute coloring book and you have a great present!
Here is a quick video I put together to show you the process!
You can actually turn a plain block into a cute holder–(this one has washi tape)
and even a 4×4 piece of wood (this one is my favorite!)
and make sure to check out this awesome crayon holder idea from a knife block!
