We totally adore our dachshund pencil holder (that also comes with a printable template) so we decided we need more unique DIY pencil holders – this bookworm paper roll pencil holder being a perfect one to make for “back to school”.
This one will look wonderful both at home or in the classroom, and what’s really great about it is that you can make it as long as you need it to be. You can use 3 paper rolls or a dozen (or more).
It will be able to store all kinds of school supplies, from crayons to markers and scissors. Depending on the length and weight of school supplies, you might need to glue the pencil holder on the surface (regular markers hold up well, but I also do have extra long double brush markers – almost half a length more than regular markers – that might tilt the pencil holder).
Ready to make your very own DIY pencil holder? Let’s make one!

Paint the paper rolls green or wrap them in green paper (regular print paper works best).
Glue them inside the gray glasses and draw black dots for eyes.
Draw the mouth on the paper roll.
Cut a red rectangle and fold it in half. This makes the book cover.
