How to make a Tin Can Pencil Holder – Step by Step (with Photos)
Begin by measuring out your coloured paper (yellow for Pikachu, orange for Charmander, green for Bulbasaur and blue for Squirtle) – high enough for the tin and long enough to wrap round the tin once plus a little extra.
- Draw, colour and cut out your Pokemon features (see images as guides)
- Glue your Pokemon facial features to the coloured paper. Add any details in black pen (e.g. nostrils or eye brows).
Add a strip of tape to one end of the coloured paper (heighth wise) and secure to the back of the tin can.
Then wrap it around the tin can secure with a second strip of tape.
And THAT is how easy it is to make your Tin Can Pokemon Pencil Holders!!!
