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! These pencil holders make a perfect back-to-school craft for the kids. They are easy to make and you will only need a few supplies. Let’s get started!
Supplies needed to make magnetic pencil holders:
- Recycled powdered drink mix container
- Scrapbook paper
- Mod Podge
How to make magnetic pencil holders:
The shorter cans are the perfect size, but if you only have the tall ones no worries! The plastic containers are easily cut with a knife (by adults only of course).
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!
