DIY Pencil Vase

This cute vase is made out of pencils and would be a perfect addition for any office.  It would also make an excellent gift for a school teacher! 

Materials Needed:

  • Glass Cylinder Vase
  • 2 Packages of Pencils, unsharpened
  • Glue Gun
  • Ribbon, if desired


  • Wash and dry your pencils.
  • Using a clean, dry rag, quickly dust off your pencils so they will stick to the vase better.
  • Put two dots of glue on your pencil and place it on the vase with the eraser side up.  Be sure to place it straight, as this will be your guide for the rest of the vase.

  • Using two dots of glue on each pencil, place the rest of the pencils around the entire vase.
  • If you do not have enough room for the last pencil, use a piece of sandpaper or a pocket knife to shave off a bit of the pencil on each side until it fits in the space available.

  • Add a thick rim of glue around the inside of the erasers at the top for extra strength.

  • Glue a thick rim on the bottom of the pencils to prevent scratching and lead marks.

  • Let dry and add a ribbon, if desired.
  • Place flowers in your vase and gift away!
