We’re all about the St Patrick’s Day celebrations in our house. I know it’s still a few weeks away but it’s never too early to start on the St Patrick’s Day crafts for kids! We’ve already shared a few new St Patrick’s Day crafts, such as our St Patrick’s Day Pot of Gold lacing craft or our shamrock paper wreath. We have one last St Patrick’s Day craft to share with you today, how to make a simple St. Patrick’s Hat pencil holder – perfect for the kids to make and store their colouring pencils.
St. Patrick’s Hat Pencil Holder supplies:
Green yarn or wool
White craft glue
Black and green cardstock
Golden glitter sheet
How to make a St. Patrick’s Hat Pencil Holder
Grab an empty cardboard roll and green coloured wool. Apply glue on the wool and then stick the glued part of the wool with the roll from the edge of the roll. Wrap the wool around the roll; keep it nice and neat. You don’t need to apply glue on the wool every time you wrap it, apply glue on the roll after wrapping every inch along the height of the roll.
Continue to wrap the wool until the entire cardboard roll is covered with wool. Apply a good amount of glue when it reaches the end and cut off extra wool. Press the open end of the wool with the roll to make sure that it is glued firmly.
Print out the patterns given in the St. Patrick’s Hat Pencil Holder and trace them on cardstock paper. Trace the round part on green cardstock, strip on black cardstock and the square frame on golden glitter sheet or yellow cardstock. Cut out the traced patterns using scissors.
Stick the frame cut out on the middle of the black strip.
Apply glue along the back side of the black strip and stick it around the wool wrapped roll near any one open side.
Now apply glue around the bottom edge (near the black strip) of the tissue paper roll and place it on the green round cut out. Press the roll against the round green cut out against a plain surface to make sure that they are glued nicely.
And the pencil holder is ready to be used. Fill with pencils or maybe even treats for a table top decoration.
