Hi friends! I’m excited to bring you yet another Michaels Makers project today – this DIY Pencil Holder Teacher Gift! So far we’ve shared two other fun projects, our popular Painted Bushel Baskets and these beautiful DIY Cork Flower Vases! And this month it’s time to get BACK TO SCHOOL and with that comes school supplies, school organization and of course my favorite, teacher gifts! And Michaels has everything you need to get ready.
For this project we wanted to do something easy and creative to give to a teacher. And what is cuter than a personalized pencil holder? Functional and fun!

What you’ll need:

  • ArtMinds birch pillar
  • Drill with 5/16 drill bit
  • Wood burner
  • Colored pencils

And the steps:

  1. Mark areas on the birch pillar where you would like to drill a hole; it’s best to plan out spacing before drilling.
  2. Take your drill with 5/16 drill bit and drill holes in the birch pillar 3/4 of the way down your pillar.

Add colored pencils and voila!

Then simply use a wood burner to add your teacher’s initial or other message on the front of your DIY pencil holder to personalize. Although it is even quite cute just as is!
