Nous adorons total notre porte-crayon teckel (qui est également livré avec un modèle imprimable), nous avons donc decide que nous avions besoin de porte-crayons bricolage plus uniques – ce porte-crayon en rouleau de papier rat de bibliothèque étant parfait pour la “back to school”.

This model will look great at home or in the classroom, and what’s really cool is that you can wear it for as long as you need to. You can use 3 rolls of paper or a dozen (or more).

You can store all kinds of school supplies from pencils to markers to scissors. Depending on the length and weight of the school supplies, you may need to glue the pen holder to the surface (regular pens hold up well, but I also have extra long twin pens, about half the length of regular pens, which pen holders could tip).

Are you ready to make your own DIY pen holder? let’s make one!
