Recyled Elephant Pencil Holder

 Have a spare soup can laying around? Instead of throwing them out, add some common craft items to make your very own little “elephant” pencil holder!


Soup can
Crayons or markers
Construction Paper
Googley Eyes


Take the construction paper and trace the can to get a strip that will cover the outside of the can. Cut out the paper.

Use a piece of tape to fasten one end of the paper to the can. Wrap around the can and glue other end to the tighten.
