Upcycled Pencil Cup

creating with joy pencil cup

I love a good upcycled craft - and as someone who also loves to sketch, I have a lot of drawing supplies. I'm always trying to find a way to organize my supplies so that they are easy to find. Organizing solutions can cost a small fortune, so I tend to find creative ways to reuse and recycle.

Of course, food cans are always a good choice when you need a new pencil cup. I'm sure you have seen a million tutorials about covering them in decorative paper, but why not take it up a notch and add some Joy embroidered letters to the mix? My pencil cup reminds me that I want to draw everyday.

I'm thinking I might add some other cans to the mix, maybe one that says WRITE, for my favorite pens, and another that says, CUT for my scissors. Labeling the cans is a great way to keep organized and using Joy embroidered letters makes labeling them very pretty and special.

To make this pencil cup, just cover a clean can with scrapbook paper, then glue your word on top. You can find Joy embroidered letters in your local craft store.
