Don’t these look so professional? Believe me when I tell you that they were really simple to make. I promise! As long as you can drill, you can make these crayon holders.
~ Wood slices. I got mine from Etsy. They are maple slices, 2.75” in diameter and an inch thick.
~ Drill. I used a very thick bit, but not sure of the exact size. Just compare it to your crayon (or pencil).
~ Chalk Markers. We tried paint but the wood soaked up the color. The chalk markers worked perfectly because they are opaque!
Hold your wood piece with one hand, and then drill with the other. We didn’t mark the wood or anything, we just started and worked our way around the edge, then drilled a few in the middle. Then use your markers, or leave them plain. THAT IS IT!! See, I told you it was easy.
These did start out as pencil holders. But we had a little visitor over and she stuck crayons in her pencil holder, which was pure genius. My son now loves them because he can pick out his favorite colors and keep them separated from all of those other colors in the big crayon basket.
These holders make me want to draw with crayons. Hope you try these at home!
super cool Bar! Look at you busting out the drill. Love it!
