Recycled Salt ContainersTo make our desk pencil cups, I started with two empty cardboard salt containers from our recycle bin. I used a utility knife to cut off the tops and remove the labels, and then I gave them a quick coat of white spray paint.

Supplies to Make Washi Tape Pencils and Pencil CupI set out a bunch of washi tape, the painted salt canisters, and some pencils for myself and my 8-year-old son. He set the timer for 15 minutes (since this is Craft Lightning and all!), and we challenged ourselves to see how much we could craft in that amount of time.

Making a Recycled Washi Tape Pencil HolderSutton set to work wrapping his salt container with his favorite colorful washi tapes, and I wrapped mine in a variety of gold patterns.

Washi Tape Covered PencilsWhen we were done wrapping the pencil cups, we started covering the pencils with washi tape as well. We ran the tape down the length of the pencil, using two strips to cover each one. Easy peasy!

Repurposed Washi Tape Pencil CupIn our 15 minute time limit, we were able to make two upcycled pencil cups and nine washi tape covered pencils!

Washi Tape Pencils and Pencil Holder CupI have a feeling that ALL of the pencils in our homeschool room are going to be covered with washi tape before the next semester begins!
