Make a bright and colourful pen pot to help to organise your pens and pencils.
You will need:
- Colored paper (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and pink)
- Tin can
- Double sided tape
- Red chenille stem
Cut a thin strip of red paper. Then cover the back in double sided tape and wrap around the top of the tin can.
Repeat step one to cover the entire can, going through all of the colours of the rainbow in order.
Measure the height of the tin can and then trim a sheet of red paper to be the same height. Use this to line the inside of the can and stick in place with the tape. Then wrap a red chenille stem around the top and stick down with double sided tape to neaten and soften the edge of the can. Now your pot is ready to store your pens in!
