How to make crayon utensil holders

These crayon utensil holders are such a great idea for an art party, rainbow party, back-to-school, or just to make your kids’ craft area cute! They’re made using empty soup cans (upcycle alert!) and a large box of crayons. You could put utensils in them, as shown, or you could put in flowers to make a cute centerpiece. Filled with sugar, they’d make a great way to display lollipops or cake pops. Or, you could use them to hold paintbrushes or markers at your kids’ craft station. To make them into a teacher gift, you could fill a can with little goodies and package it up in a cello bag. The possibilities are endless!

Materials needed:

Starting with an empty, clean soup can, adhere the crayons to the can using glue dots or a hot glue gun set to low temperature. 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?
