Back to school season has hit and Pinterest is full of adorable back to school gift ideas that moms are pinning like crazy! When I saw the homemade pencil vase making the rounds, I just knew I had to try it. It seemed simple enough and what I really loved about it is that it's relevant all year long. It could be a fun welcome back gift or I could save it for Teacher Appreciation Week or even the holiday season!
Now onto our DIY tutorial!
The idea is simple. Just collect the following materials:
- Hot Glue Gun
- 4 Packs of Colored Pencils
- A vase or recycled glass jar
And then you just glue the pencils in place around the jar one by one! But this easy-looking craft too good to be true?
Watch this video and find out if it was a Pinterest fail or a Pinterest win!:
