Want to make a DIY pencil case? Grab a dollar store surface and some fabric Mod Podge and get to work – these could be used for so many things!
Greetings friends! This is Megan from Homemade Ginger and I'm back to share another easy DIY! I came across these fun slide out pencil cases at the dollar store and thought that they would look super cool covered in fabric.
So, I grabbed my Fabric Mod Podge and got to work. I think they turned out pretty cute and could be used for lots of things besides pencils!
DIY Pencil Case
Here's what you will need:
- Slide Out Pencil Case (I found mine at Dollar Tree)
- Fabric Mod Podge
- Foam Brush
- Nail Polish
The first thing I knew I wanted to do was change the color of the snap. So, I grabbed my nail polish and just gave it a few coats. Don't worry about it being too perfect since you will be covering the rest with fabric.
So I found that I didn't need to cut my holes perfect to size, they were actually slightly smaller but I was able to stretch the fabric around them for a snug fit.
Either way works! After you have done this step and the Mod Podge is dry, give the entire thing another coat of Mod Podge on the outside of the fabric and allow to dry.
