DIY: Glittered Pencil Holders

Thursday, July 19, 2012

I love a good DIY! 

Summer is sadly starting to wind down, and heading back to school is on many of our minds. While heading back to school isn't the most fun thing, here is a way you can spice up your workspace! These glittered pencil holders are super easy to make and are so cute! 

So let's get started:
The materials you need are: Glass Jars, Mod Podge, Glitter, Paintbrush and Wax paper (to cover your workspace). 

I bought my glass jars at Bath and Body Works during their huge sale, but you can use any glass jar for this. You could buy them at the dollar store or recycle old candle jars and mason jars. Anything goes! 
Next you want to grab some Mod Podge and a paintbrush, and paint the Mod Podge on the inside of the jar. I waited about 30 seconds so that it became tacky. 

Next, I poured the glitter into the bottom of the jar and slowly rolled the jar around. Take extra care with this step so that the jar gets completely covered by the glitter and there are no blank spots! Any excess glitter that falls onto the wax paper can be put back into the glitter container! 

Set it upside down on the wax paper to dry for a few hours. Once it's dry, you must seal the glitter. Do this by taking your Mod Podge and carefully painting over the glitter. This will ensure that the glitter does not chip off! Set it down to try again for a few hours. 

And voila! Now you have super cute and sparkly pencil holders for your workspace!
