Prepare yourself for another post in our Crafty Chaos series....

Our dad is constantly losing pencils when he works in the garage, so we decided to make him a very girly pencil holder (because we're funny like that) and fill it up with 12 four-packs of pencils. We thought it turned out OH, SO ADORABLE and we just had to share it! Check it out!
 How cute is that?! Have you ever seen a more precious pencil holder? Of course you haven't, because there has never been a prettier pencil holder in the history of pencil holders!! But anyway, let's get on with how we made it!

 For this project, we used a soup can that we already had on hand, and a hot glue gun we've had for a long time, as well as some rubber bands, 6'' tulle, Mod Podge, flower gemstones, sequin ribbon, and sparkly pink paper. We got some really fun materials that we have leftovers of, and everything was purchased at discounted prices! Yay for Hobby Lobby coupons and sales!

Basically, we cut the paper to size and used Mod Podge to stick it to the can. We wrapped a rubber band around the can, trimmed the tulle into little strips, and stuck the strips through the rubber band. We hot glued the sequins above the tulle. Then we just glued on the flowers, and popped in the pencils! It was pretty simple, quick, cheap, and obviously SUPER CUTE!
We hope this sparks some fun ideas, because we sure had a lot of fun putting this girly can together (and our dad just LOVES the girly aspect of it, especially for garage, *wink, wink*)! What are a few of your favorite girly things to add to projects? Personally, I love sequins!

Thanks for reading, and have a FABULOUS day!
