Easter Recycled Tin Can Pen Holder

We are approaching the Holy Week and we will not be blogging during this time. I’d like to wish everybody a peaceful Holy Week with your family and friends.

Sometimes in life we have to face challenging situations, but when we remember what God has given us the hope for overcoming all difficult situations, then life seems more manageable. I think that the Holy week should be a time for reflection and time to say thank you for all we have in our lives, and a time to share what we have.

My last crafts idea for Easter is this simple tin can recycled pen holder.

Recycled tin can pen holder

What you need:

Tin can, lollipop sticks, yellow and white acrylic paint, Hi-Tack glue, yellow ribbon.

How you do it:

First you have to paint the lollipop sticks in this case with yellow and white acrylic paint and let them dry.( you can find already painted colored lollipop sticks in craft shops) but we had fun painting them.

Attach the lollipop sticks on your tin canΒ  with Hi-Tack glue and let dry.

Finally tie your yellow ribbon.

    Another great activity, Izabel! I like the idea of the Popsicle Sticks/Lollipop Sticks. The color is great and the bow a big highlight. Thanks for the DIY always. Be Blessed, Mtetar

    Thank you for your thoughts about Holy Week. I like the idea of taking a step back from the somewhat frenetic pace of everyday life to focus with intention on the importance of the season. Wishing you and yours many blessings of Eastertide.

    Love the popsicle sticks… so bright and cheerful and a fun craft for kids. πŸ™‚

    I love things made with popsicle sticks and this is a keeper! It so happens that I need another container to hold colored pencils in my creative room. I also happen to have lots of sticks…..gonna make this! Thanks for the idea!
