This is a really easy way to make a cool pencil holder for your desk. Just save a tin can, then peel off the label and wash it with soap. Then pick up a bag of glass gems at your favorite craft store (found in the floral section).
The only other thing you'll need is a hot glue gun. Heat up that bad boy and start gluing the gems on until the can is covered. That's all there is to it. And you just scored a cute pencil holder that you can display on your desk or give as a gift.
