You’ve probably noticed how much I love things to do with dripping paint (just look at the header of my blog!). And so for my latest post for Oriental Trading Company, I turned a messy paint bucket into a DIY pencil holder.
These little buckets are perfect for filling with pens and pencils. There are a lot of fun ways to use them too. You could make one of every color and use them to sort all of your miscellaneous supplies by color. I think this would be especially cute in a classroom. They would also be perfect for kids or for adults.
Plus, these are so much messy fun to make! Another fun touch would be to add a white label across the middle before you drip the paint.
