We love DIY classroom decorations or home desk decorations kids can make by themselves and this is certainly something we will be sharing more of now that we are getting close to the start of the new school year.
What we love the most about our DIY pencil holder is, besides it being Dachshund shaped, that you can make it as long as you need it to be.
This one is perfect to use in the classroom as it will store anything from crayons to paint brushes.
There really is no “age limit” for this craft as everyone would love a Daschund DIY pencil holder on their desk, but as far as classrooms goes we think this one would look the best in a preschool classroom or a kindergarten classroom.
Ready to make one? We have a template to make things super easy.

Print our template (you can find it at the end of this tutorial).
Depending on the length of your DIY pencil holder you might need to glue it down to a cardboard base to give it more stability.
Paint your paper rolls brown. You can also wrap them with brown paper.
Our printable template can be used both as a stencil to trace on brown paper or you can color it in.
You need to let the glue dry completely (that’s why we prefer a glue gun). We left ours to dry overnight for it to really really set.
Glue the paper roll with the head and the paper roll with the tail on the end of the toilet paper roll body.
Woohoo you just finished your Daschund DIY dog paper roll pencil holder. Now just fill it with crayons, markers and other lovely things.
