Happy Fall Pencil Holder

Create an adorable fall pencil holder, personalized with embroidered letters.

Happy Fall Pencil Holder

The supplies for this project are simple and inexpensive.
  • Joy® Iron-On Embroidered Letters
  • Wood pencil holder (found at the Dollar store)
  • Folk Art Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Patterned paper
  • Black detail pen
  • Paper flowers and leaves
  • Inks
  • Hot Glue Gun

  1. Paint the pencil holder with two coats of paint. Let dry between coats. 
  2. Use a chalk ink to color the embroidered letters. Set aside to dry.
  3. Make a pattern for the sides of the holder by tracing on paper, then making a cut line about 1/4" in from the edges. Cut two, turning the template over for the second one. 
  4. Ink the sides of the paper. I used a dark green then a touch of dark brown.
  5. Add faux stitching to the edge of the paper and the edge of the pencil holder.  Adhere the papers to both sides of the holder.
  6. Using a hot glue gun adhere the letters to one side and flowers and leaves to decorate.

Making a pattern

Joy® embroidered script, monogram letters are available in different sizes in white or black. White letters can be colored to coordinate with any décor.
