I had this idea for the pen holder because I have a few small markers which needed a good home and I also had tons of empty film cans from photography. Why not combine the two?
This project is super easy and I can see even small children doing it. It took me less than 10minutes to complete each holder.
Film Can Pen Holder
You will need:
Empty film can
Adhesive of your choice ( I used double-sided tape )
Step 3: Stick the cover to the bottom of the film can to form the base. Then put your markers inside and admire your craftiness.
Easy right?? I love this so much because the steps are so easy and yet the results are so cute to look at! Craftier people than me can try the following variations:
- Decorate the can with paint instead of washi tape.
- Make the can taller by cutting the bottom out of one can and then sticking it to another can.
- Cut the can in half and use it to store small items like paper clips.
- Fill the completed film can with uncooked rice or beans, then stick pens into it.
Those are just some wild ideas, completely untested! Let me know if you tried any of them and whether they worked!
