DIY Personalized Pencil Holder


Hope everyone had a great weekend! I got snowed in from our latest winter storm Jonas, and kinda got stuck in my apartment. Which turned out to be awesome for me because this craft took longer than I thought to complete it!

Just to get a little backstory, a couple of months ago I came across some mesh pencil holders at a yard sale that I knew could be made more personal than if I bought a pencil holder in a store. Plus, they had a great price on them so I couldn’t resist the buy.

I also have had some embroidery thread that I had no plans of using and was just sitting in my craft stuff for the past couple of months. By combining these two random item, I was able to make my pencil holders be a little more my style! Read below to learn how you can make your own!

Pencil HolderWhat You Need:

  • Embroidery Thread
  • A needle that the embroidery thread can go through (Optional but makes the process go by quicker)
  • Mesh Pencil Holder

How to Create It:

  1. Tie the end of the embroidery thread and weave it into the mesh pencil holder.
  2. Experiment with what type of pattern you would like in it. I ended up making mine look like a basket weave.
  3. Keep weaving the thread through the mesh until you like the way the thread looks in the cup.
  4. That’s it!

It took me about ten hours to get this done. The process was tedious, but in the end I think it was worth it. I’m sorry that I don’t really know how to go into more detail with this project, so if you have any questions I was not able to answer, comment below or e-mail me at

Thank you all for reading, and I hope you have a great day!
