I made these several months ago, and I had never thought of sharing them on the blog because they didn’t seem something so unique and special that I would write a blog post on them. But, last week I just got an idea to add a bow on the top which made it look uber cute and that’s how this post was born. 🙂
How to make Pencil Holders from Old Jam Jars
So, to make your own pencil holders you will need:
- old jam jars
One of the jars I used was from the old room decor which you can view here. I used a mixtue of white glue and turquoise glitter which I poured inside the jars and using a sponge I coated the entire jar with the mixture. Several coats were needed and it took almost two weeks to finish the entire project, drying, touching-up again and again.
Then, I used this ribbon. Folded it into half and glued it on top.
Like this. And then, I made a bow out of the same ribbon and glued it on top.
Viola! It’s ready, a homemade pencil holder, better than any bought at stores!

This diy pencil holder for desk is great to add personalized decor in dorm rooms. Don’t you think?
