Anyone who knows me, knows I am a sucker for office supplies and organizational vessels ha! Target has the best craft isle and every time I head down it, I can’t help myself but pick up some new thing. I found these cute little wood cups that are raw wood and were just screaming my name, so I’m showing how to make these cute little DIY Pencil Cups! These could even be a cute gift to give teacher’s for their desk at school.
Hey Jo, wanna craft something??? Why I sure do!
I was working on accessorizing a client’s kitchen and they have the cutest little play table that I had painted navy blue that the kids could do their crafts on. I wanted a cute way to display all their crayons and markers so I made these little cuties.
These are so simple to make anyone can do it. Crafty or not! Here is what you need to get started.
Wood Plant Pots from Target /Rustoleum Gold Spray Paint
Acrylic Paint: Colors of your choice /Blue Tape
Black Puffy Paint
Paint Brush/ Pencil
I started by taping off the containers at a diagonal. The first layer I was masking the parts that I wanted to keep the natural wood. I then painted them with a gold spray paint. The Rustoleom one from Home Depot happens to be my personal favorite of all the gold spray paints.
Now, I will be sure to have bold lines and still keep some of the gold and wood intact.
Finish it off with a coat of Satin clear coat spray paint so it doesn’t mar easily.
And there you have it a cute little pencil cup for a playroom, desk or even for your kitchen.
