Cork Pencil Cup

You do need a lot of corks for this project, but if you’ve read yesterday’s post, you may feel a bit more confident about giving this one a try. For Father’s Day, the kids can make this fun cork pencil cup that doubles as a bulletin board of sorts…

A can is covered in corks to create a pencil cup for Dad's desk.

You can also pin business cards to the side.

For this project I used: one 29 0z. tomato sauce can, 40 corks (cut in half with a knife) and a glue gun.

Glue halved corks to can, cut side facing in.

I was able to cover the entire can evenly with rows of five.

This project took me about 20 minutes from start to finish.

Something fun the kids can make for Father's Day.

    I’m loving the cork pencil cup! Great way to re-use those old corks as well! I’ve tried making a pin board out of corks I had collected as I’ve heard many design ideas about it – but being honest – it didn’t turn out all that well!

    Such a great idea! 🙂
    I have plenty of cloth tags that I keep and I refuse to throw them away because some of the tags are unique on their own way. Perhaps you could share with us on how we could decorate using those tags? Much appreciated Camilia.
