I've been inspired by all of the crayon creations I've seen on Pinterest lately. With the start of school in a few weeks, I wanted to make a few of them for my classroom. First up is this crafty crayon pencil/ marker/ whatever you want it to hold holder. Since I don't have all my school stuff at home, I can't tell you exactly what it will be used for. But, I'm thinking washable markers or highlighters. It's a pretty good sized box. This little gem took me just an hour to make.
3 (24) Packs of Crayons
Step 1: Start out with a plain wooden box. I bought mine at Jo Ann's.
Paint your box your desired color. I painted one coat on the outside and inside. I painted a second coat on the top of the box since it would not be covered in crayons.
Step 2: Paint a coat of Mod Podge over the paint. I painted the entire box.
Step 3: Hot glue the crayons to the box. I started at the corner and makes my way around. I ended up using just over two boxes of crayons.
Step 4: Hot glue a coordinating ribbon around the top of the box and you're finished! Fill with whatever you'd like.
