Decoupage Pencil Holder

SAVE MONEY.  DECORATE.

With new wall hanging cabinets, I was inspired to make the area not only organized, but attractive as well.  I took one look at my pencil holder below and knew it wasn’t going to make the cut.  I was honestly just going to throw it away, but then I thought…MOD PODGE!  And what do you know, it turned out great!

Supplies:
  • mod podge
  • scrapbook paper
  • brush
  • scissors
Game Plan:

1.  Lay your pencil holder on the scrapbook paper and cut it to size or close to size.

2.  Brush a layer of Mod Podge onto the pencil holder and then stick the scrapbook paper to it.  Continue this process all the way around.  Let dry.

Start at the back of the pencil holder (unlike me) so your seam won’t be seen as easily.  I wasn’t thinking clearly when doing this project!
