Crayon Utensil Holders (or pencil holders)

Materials needed: Empty clean soup can, large box of crayons (25-30 for each can), glue dots, and ribbon. 

Starting with an empty, clean soup can, adhere the crayons to the can using glue dots. Start in one spot and work your way all around the can.  


Your crayons should be held firmly in place by the glue dots. 

Add a bit of decorative ribbon and you are done! Easy, huh?

    1. I didn't use hot glue because I was afraid that the heat would melt the crayons. If you try it, definitely use a low temp hot glue gun.

    2. I used a hot glue gun and it worked fine. As you keep the glue on the paper of the crayon, it won't melt. (It will melt though if the tip of the gun touches the actual wax of the crayon, and fast!)

    2. You can find glue dots at any arts and crafts store. They are usually sold in the scrapbooking section.
      Or, like just about everything else, you can buy them from Amazon.com. http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=glue+dots

    3. Glue dots are foundat Michaels for $4.99 a box. 200 in the box. I purchased removable one because I used on a class vase with colored pencils.
