I love this unicorn pencil holder and my kids did too – as soon as they saw this they had to make their own! DIY pencil pots are really easy to make and as you’ll see in the video below you really can make them in minuites, plus this easy craft for kids is really easy to adapt so you can personalise your unicorn pencil holder and make it just the way you want it and all the more magical!
DIY Unicorn Pencil Holder Materials

Clean tin can
Let’s make it!
To make your unicorn pencil holder either watch the tutorial in this video or follow the written instructions below.
Start by cutting a piece of white paper to the right width and length to fit around your tin can, I did this by holding the paper to where I wanted it to fit on my can and checking the width that way. You could do your drawings on the paper before you tape it onto your tin can but I found it easier to selotape the paper around the can first and then draw as (as daft as this might sound) I think doing the positioning for unicorns can be a bit tricky so this helps to work out where you want to put each feature.
Next up cut out a horn from gold, yellow or glitter card and some flower shapes from card or construction paper. You could also use flower stickers for this instead. Stick these onto your pen pot using glue dots – these will hold your card and paper in place much better than normal PVA glue or glue sticks as you’re working on a curved surface.
Finally draw on your unicorns ears and eyes using a black pen – don’t forget to add eyelashes – and your unicorn pencil holder is done and ready to be filled!
