Back To School Days: DIY Emoji Pencil Jars


back to school days

Welcome to the second installment of Back To School Days!  Today, I have a great DIY to hold all of your pencils and pens.  To be honest, sometimes, pencil boxes and pencil bags are a pain.  Like when you’re expected to take everything out fast, it takes forever to get them open and search around in them for your supplies.  But these emoji jars will take care of that for you!


What you will need:

-paint brush

-bright yellow paint, I bought mine from Target in the craft aisle, titled Satin Marigold

-Jars, Also from target in the dollar section

-colored sharpies

-newspaper for craft surface

Step 1:

Paint the insides of your jars with yellow paint.  I applied two coats.  Wash the brush, and let dry.

Step 2:

After the paint has dried, on the outside, carefully draw on your emoji faces.  Make sure to let dry before use, so that you don’t smudge the marker.  And you’re done!

Bidding you a bookish farewell,
