The Simple Secret to making a Teachers Gift!
Today I will show you a fun and quick tutorial teaching you how to make a fun Pencil Vase DIY. Now I know everyone has already started school but it’s never too late to give your teacher a handmade gift. Frankly if you ask me, I would like to give this to my teacher on a random day they are not expecting a gift.
I wanted to create something that can be used daily so it doesn’t get shoved into a closet or on a shelf! Today’s Pencil Vase DIY can be used to put flowers in (yes it holds water) or you can stick things like pencils, markers, highlighters or brushes in them. Did I mention how bright and whimsical they are in general! Let’s get started.
As a kid I used to play “school” with all of my stuffed animals, yep you heard that right. I always thought I wanted to be a teacher when I grew up however things shifted and I realized I didn’t have enough patience for that at all, at least not as a full time job!
For this project you will need:
Colored Pencils | Cans (Clean Veggie Ones) | Glue Gun
To make your life easier I attached links above so you can purchase all of the products I used in this post above! See, you don’t even have to leave your house to shop. Win/Win for the world of bloggers! If you are lucky you might already have most of these!

Add a strip of hot glue to your can and quickly place your colored pencil on top of it. Do this quick you want the glue to be hot as possible when you put pencil on it.
Continue lining the can with the colored pencils! It’s already looking beautiful! So quick and easy.
These vases are also super easy to make and make the best gifts.
Purchase a pack of 36 pencils and you will only have one left over. You can now fill them with water and put daily cuttings in them to brighten up any space. Another thing you can do is stuff these babies with paint brushes! I think even adding utensils in the kitchen would look great in them!
Want to make another bold statement, check out this DIY backpack I created last year.
Another great back to school gift for anyone are these hand painted journals that I made a while back, you definitely want to check these out! Don’t forget to pin these images to your boards to reference for later on when you are ready to make them.
I hope you enjoyed this project and I can’t wait to see you in my next post! Until then, huge hugs from my computer to yours!!!!
