You can make these decorative tabletop or desk containers using either tin cans or bathroom tissue rolls. Use them to hold pens and pencils or flowers.

  • Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

Instructions:
Paint the craft sticks whatever color or colors you like. Let them dry. You can also leave the craft sticks their natural color if you prefer.

If you are using a bathroom tissue roll, cover one of the holes with a circle cut from cardboard. Trace around one of the bathroom tissue roll ends onto the cardboard, cut it out, and glue it onto the end of the bathroom tissue roll.

Glue the painted craft sticks around the outside of the bathroom tissue roll or tin can until it is completely covered. Once you are done gluing on the craft sticks, wrap a few rubber bands around the can to hold the sticks in place until the glue dries.

Make several of these in different sizes. You can also embellish the cans with wooden shapes, buttons, sequins, or any other craft supplies you have on hand.
