Snowman Pencil Holder – Materials
This really is a super thrifty craft.. I love that you are essentially using an old tin can and some ordinary white paper to make these little snowmen. The ribbons we used were saved from gifts, so didn’t cost us a pen either!
- a tin can with the paper removed (but don’t worry if there is a little sticky residue, you can hide that later)
- some white printer paper
- a piece of ribbon
How to make a Snowman Pencil Holder

You can download and print your own Minecraft Desk Tidies that I mention in the video!
How to make a Tin Can Pencil Holder – step by step instructions
(if you would like photos of these step by step instructions, we have some over on the DIY Penguin Pencil Holders post!! The penguins and snowman would look SO CUTE together!!)
- Wrap your paper around your tin, to make how wide and long you need to cut it. It creates a slight crease that you can then follow.
- Make sure you cut it right! 🙂
- Then get a little tape. Get the end of your rectangular paper, stick it across the end and stick into the back of your tin. Make sure you rectangle is nicely alined.
- Then wrap the paper around your tin and secure the other end with a bit more tape. You basic tin is ready!
- Decorate with pens
- Add a ribbon. You CAN if you wish decorae the paper FIRST and then stick it on.. it is up to you really!
