Upcycling Project | How to Make Pencil Holders from Tin Cans

Take any tin can and transform it into a pencil holder. Or use it to organize your art supplies! This super easy project is so satisfying and easy. Cover your cleaned tin can with construction paper, cardstock or make your own with watercolor paper.

I’ll show you two techniques using Tim Holtz Distress Inks as watercolors.

For this project you’ll need clean tin cans (any size) watercolor paper, watercolors, paint brushes, double-stick tape, clear tape, electrical tape, scissors and salt (optional).

This is a great upcycling project that kids and adults will have fun doing.
