It’s day 3 of Craft Lightning and I’m back with more fabulous Back to School crafts that can be completed in 15 minutes.

Pencil Vase

First, I’m sharing a great 15 minute craft that is perfect for your favorite teacher’s desk.  I made this fun Pencil Vase and I love the way it turned out.  Everyone loves fresh flowers and ever teacher deserves flowers.  As a teacher, I would even make this and fill it with flowers myself.  It would even by fun to fill with DIY Flower Pens.

And, guess what?  It only cost me $5 to make and that included the flowers.  Pencils are really cheap right now so it’s the best time to make this pencil vase.

I’m not sure that this really requires a tutorial but here it is just in case you would like one.


  • 4 boxes of pencils
  • empty tin can
  • glue gun and glue sticks
  • ribbon
  • flowers


  • Glue pencils around can using your handy dandy glue gun.
  • Glue ribbon around center of pencils
  • Add water and flowers.
