With scissors or a cutter, cut about 15 cm. from the base of the bottle. Paint with acrylic paint in the color you like your future pencil holder. If you paint it white, you can decorate it with the face of a cat. You just have to glue two circles of white paper to make the eyes and then draw a point in the center of the circle to form the pupil of the cat’s eyes. Draw the cat’s heart-shaped nose in the center and under the eyes. On the sides of the nose, extend the whiskers with black stripes that you can do with a marker.

You will cut the bottle the same way I indicated for the previous craft and paint it with white acrylic paint. At 1 cm. from the edge you will make several holes with the awl along the extension of the edge of the bottle. Thread the thread or thread with the color you chose and pass it through one of the holes you made from the inside to the outside. Lay out the thread so that it does not crease and pass it through the next hole. And keep doing this until you are done going through all the holes you made. You will notice that a new edge of the pencil holder has been formed with the wire you were using.

This way you can create different designs by passing the yarn or wool around the bottle which you will turn into your pencil holder. Instead of recycling a plastic bottle, you can use empty cans to easily decorate them. As materials, you will only need the box of the desired size, glue stick, paper and die-cut magazine figures. Glue the paper around the box to line it neatly so that the paper does not wrinkle or form bubbles. On the glued paper, use a stick to draw the numbers you cut out by pasting them, and your new pencil holder is ready.
