Magnetic Pencil Holder for Back-to-School
Every school locker needs pencils and also some bling, so these magnetic pencil holders are just what the teacher ordered!
The best part is this magnetic pencil holder uses a recycled powdered drink mix container. You will also need some scrap book paper, magnets and mod podge.
Paint a layer of mod podge on the container.
Cut a piece of paper to fit around the container, leaving it about 1 inch longer than the container at the top. Wrap paper around container. Paint the top inside edge of the can with mod podge. Cut slits around the top edge of the paper and then fold paper into the can.
Allow mod podge to dry before giving the entire outside of the container a coat of mod podge. Add a few embellishments. Allow to dry and then add a top coat of mod podge. Allowing each coat to dry helps to keep the paper from bubbling.
Hot glue two magnets to the back of the container.
The containers can also be covered with a picture collage of a hobby, special interest or favorite star!
Now the kids will have the best dressed locker!Published August 11, 2011. Last updated September 5, 2011.
