I’m pretty sure most parents can relate to my predicament. My young kids have a lot of art supplies that they bring to school. Every day, without fail, they come home with their coloring materials in complete disarray. At the end of every month, I end up having to buy a new set because their supplies are dwindling.

Say goodbye to messy art supplies!

I realized that the fault is not entirely theirs. Because their colored pens and pencils are just kept in their respective boxes, the boxes disintegrate easily. I should have provided better storage.

I’m sharing with you a great DIY project: no-sew colored pencil roll. The materials needed to make one are inexpensive. Plus, those with no sewing skills can easily make one. This is basically a mother’s dream project come true.

Materials:

  • Wool felt
  • String

Tools:

  • Scissors
  • X-Acto knife
  • Ruler
  • Marker
