How to Make a DIY Pencil Vase
You can use any type of pencil you like to make this vase. We used a variety of pencils that had patterns on them too. Just make sure if you are using different pencils that you make a pattern as it goes around the jar, so it looks neat and orderly.
Heat up the hot glue gun.
Be sure to leave enough time to get your glue gun nice and warm.
Add one pencil at a time using the hot glue to the mason jar.
Remember if you are using different types of pencils, that you plan out your pattern.
Continue with the remaining pencils until the mason jar is covered.
Make sure you have enough glue!
Add a ribbon and fresh flowers.
Be sure to match your flowers and ribbon to the season or the color pencils you are using.
