Do you know what I realized today? Every single time I need a pen I’m in the kitchen, which happens to be a room away from the nearest pen. I could walk to the next room and get one when I need it but why would I want to do that when I can just keep pens in the kitchen? I’m not lazy, I swear, it is just more practical this way.
So I started looking through the drawers to see where I could keep pens. Everything is too cluttered. I don’t want to add to that messiness. Then I looked over and saw a tin can I cleaned out yesterday that didn’t make it to my craft room yet. Yes! That’s where I’m going to put pens. I’m going to decorate it and put some magnets on it, and stick it to the fridge. (I love tin can crafts! Really, I love any up cycled craft.)
If you have the same issue, I highly recommend the fridge pen holder. It keeps the pens out of my drawers and off the counter, yet is still accessible. Sorry, I know I sound like a TV commercial or something, but I really do enjoy the convenience of it.
Things You Will Need:
Hot glue or super glue
Measure the tin can and cut your scrapbook paper to the appropriate size.
Using your Mod Podge, glue the paper onto your can.
Press down tightly to make sure you don’t get any bubbles.
Depending on how many pens you wants the tin to hold, either use hot glue or super glue to adhere your magnets.
I had originally planned on using hot glue, but after thinking about my excitement level, I decided to go with super glue.
Let it dry (especially if you’re using the super glue).
Now, go get a cute tablet and stick it to the fridge next to your newly finished DIY pen holder!
