Art Holder for Markers, Crayons, Pencils, Glue Sticks, and Scissors

I have wanted an art holder for our kitchen table for awhile now.

I looked around the garage and found an old tea light candle holder that I bought at Goodwill for $3 several years ago.

My husband drilled the holes further down & then I sanded it to create this new piece.

I could sand it further & then paint it but frankly that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

When the art holder is on the table I have noticed the kids drawing and creating more than usual. I place various drawing books we have as well as blank paper and watch them go to town.

Tomorrow I’ll share with you some of their favorite doodling books!

    Totally awesome. The art supplies are a constant nightmare in my house. I have two single tealight holders similar to yours and I’m TOTALLY turnin’ ’em into holders like this. Only I’m keepin’ them for me. :o)

  4. This is a great idea!

    What a wonderful reuse. Sometimes “shopping” in one’s house is terrific.
