I work part time as a church secretary and my desk at church needed a li'l bit of sprucing up, so I decided to make myself a new pencil holder.
So, not wanting to put any money out on the project, I used a recycled tin can. I think almost everyone at some point in their childhood made one of these right?
I'm really loving burlap right now, so I decided to go with that. If you plan on making one of these, make it a lot easier on yourself and use the finished edge at the top of the can.
After gluing the burlap around the can, I glued the bottom down, too.
To make it look a little more finished, I glued a burlap circle to the bottom. To make the circle, I just traced around the edge of the can, and then cut it out slightly smaller than markings.
Embellish however your heart desires. I just tied on some cute ribbon and added a muslin rosette and called it a day!
