Today, I'm going to show you how to make a tin can pencil holder and I'll be showing you how to make two different versions. You can use both of these cans as a pencil or a brush holder. 

Here's how you make there two DIY tin can pencil holder:


For both of these tin cans you want to stick a can at the edge of a piece of paper and take a pencil and put a mark near the bottom of the can on the paper to measure how much you need to cut off of the paper.

After you get your strips of paper cut out, you can make your designs.

For the can with the line you can take a ruler and draw a line in the middle of the paper. Then you can paint the bottom stripe any color you want and when you are done painting, wait for the paint to dry.
