St. Patrick’s Hat Pencil Holder

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.

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.
