Upcycle A Jar To A Pencil Holder - Great For Teachers!

Hey, everyone! Today I am sharing how I upcycled a jar to create a pencil holder using Etchall Dip n' Etch. So don't throw away those empty food jars!
This would make a great teacher gift! 

The first thing I did was clean off the labels from the jar. Then I placed the jar into a plastic container and poured the Etchall Dip n' Etch into the container until it was at the rim of the jar and let it sit for 15 min. To keep my jar from floating, I added some rocks in the jar.

Ater the 15 min. was up, I removed my jar from the liquid then washed and dried it.  Then using a honeycomb stencil, I colored it in with a  Marabu Porcelain & Glas Marker in Yellow.
To attach the ribbon and fringe, I used a hot glue gun.
