Made a Pencil Holder out of a Jar

I have actually made a pencil holder before.  Several probably.  It seemed to be the craft of choice when I was a kid.  We’d bring an empty frozen orange juice can to school, cover it with wall-paper, and voilà! -  a beautiful and practical Christmas present for Grandma – something to go with her painted rock paper-weight from last Christmas.  But I digress…

Nadine wanted a pencil holder for her room, and I’d seen these pretty painted jars on Pinterest, so I decided to give it a try.  It was super easy, and really pretty.  I was going to fancy up this one with some decoupage on the outside, but Nadine snagged it as soon as it was dry, and filled it with her lanyard making supplies.  But I’ve been saving jars, and will make more, and everyone will get pencil holders this year!
