Make a DIY pencil pouch that is one of a kind using an inexpensive zippered pencil case and colorful puffy paint.

DIY Pencil Pouch

My kids love getting their back to school supplies list. I however just see money signs. I swear the lists get longer and longer every year!

This year my daughter is going in to 4th grade and her list was pretty specific about the type of pencil pouch she needs. It must be a pouch, not a box, and fit in a binder.

DIY Zipper Pencil Pouch

Well, my daughter loves cute little pencil boxes so this was quite a blow to her school supply plans. But I assured her we could find a way to make a fun pencil pouch that fit in her binder.

This is a super easy craft that kids can do on their own.  All you need is a pouch and some paint.


Zipper Pencil Pouch

Supplies Needed:

Plastic Binder Pouch
3D paint – we used red, green, orange, blue, purple, yellow and white .  Neon and glow paint would be fun, too!


Initial Pencil Case

On a protected flat surface, lay your pencil case. Decorate it with paint!

No Sew Pencil Pouch

Let dry 24 hours until completely set.

These would be great for travel binders for road trips and airplanes, too!
