Whether you want to start the new school year with a funky DIY project or make something cool and original for your office
This one is fantastic for a variety of reasons. It’s easy to do, it’s sturdy and durable and it also looks cool. Another great thing is that you can make it as big or as small as you like by cutting the wood block to the desired length. Make the holes as big as you like by using the appropriate wood hole.
A pen holder made of a wooden block can also be compact, like this one. This shape and size is suitable for almost all common office space. It can hold a few pens and even scissors and other small tools, but is not good for crayons or more than a few items. The metallic gold spray paint gives it a very chic look.

If you want your new DIY pencil holder to be extra cute, you should look at this one. It’s super cute and it just needs a few basic things like a jar, a couple of colored ropes, a hot glue gun and some black thread for the whiskers plus a little bit of felt for that cute little pink nose.
Another nice idea may be to make a pen holder that looks like a hedgehog. It would be quite small, as you would have to use a wooden egg, but that only makes it sweeter. In addition to the egg, you also need a drill, four small wood beads for the legs and another for the nose and a glue gun. The pins behave like spikes. You can find all the details about the project in the tutorial on phar-ma.
Maybe this pen holder is not as adorable as the hedgehog or the kitten, but it is super chic and easy to do. The idea for his design comes from yourdiyfamily. This pencil holder consists of 8 gymnastics rings (2.67 “type), two ice stalks (or a thick card), all of which are attached with wood glue. Of course, you can use fewer or more rings or make the pen holder wider.
It is quite possible to make unique pen holders from recycled or reusable objects. In fact, in this sense, there are many cool ideas, one of which comes from Grillo designs. Some bricks, as it turns out, have small holes just big enough for a pin to fit in. That means you can turn a brick into a pen holder. To make it more attractive, you can paint it first.
You know these cardboard tubes in paper towel rolls? They are surprisingly strong and sturdy and they are also perfect for making a pen holder. Try to find tubes in different sizes so you can mix and match them. Cut each one to the desired length and then group, spray, and glue onto a flat piece of cardboard. This unusual, but very creative idea comes from yellowgirl.
A plastic bottle can be reused and reused in many cool ways, and one of the most interesting ideas of transformation has nothing to do with it but the simple DIY pen holder. In our Youtube tutorial, you’ll learn how to turn two plastic bottles into one zippered folder. It’s easier than you think. You can also decorate the case you want.
Air-dry clay is a really cool resource. You can use it to do a lot of cool and interesting things, including a geometric pin keeper as seen on linesacross. Of course, you can shape your own as you like, but we suggest simple geometric shapes with symmetrical lines because they are easier to correct. Use only real pins for the holes while the tone is still soft.
A pencil holder made of pencils … that’s pretty poetic. Actually, the one shown on aumpkinandaprincess is made from crayons, but that’s pretty cool too. Of course there is more than that. What you do not see in this picture is the fact that all of these colored crayons are attached to a tin can with double-sided tape. The ribbon and cord complete the look and also help to keep the crayons in place. You can make this a sweet gift for someone or for yourself.
