Button and Jewel Pencil Pot

This is so pretty and if you use all recycled stuff it need only cost you the price of a little glue. Have a hunt around for used buttons and broken costume jewellery or purchase some shiny new ones

Total Time: 2 hours

Yield: 1 pencil pot



  1. Choose your pot - I used a food can. Remove the label if possible.
  2. Cut a piece of jersey fabric longer than the height of your pot and slightly shorter than the circumference. You will need it to stretch slightly to get a snug fit.
  3. Apply a line of glue down the pot and stick one edge of the fabric down.
  4. Apply another line of glue, stretch the fabric around the pot and stick down the other edge.
  5. Trim the bottom edge and make small cuts all around.
  6. Glue the resulting tabs one at a time to the underside.
  7. Apply glue to the inside top of your pot and turn the top edge of the fabric to the inside.
  8. Beginning at the seam, glue buttons and plastic or glass jewels in lines all around your pot.
