Hallowedding: Spooky Pen & Pencil Holder

Create a chilling pen and pencil holder by giving a standard spool a wonderfully classic vintage look.

What You Need

  • Black-and-white patterned papers (We used assorted items in the Formality Collection from One Heart...One Mind.)
  • 2-x-2-x-2-inch wooden cube
  • Charcoal Colorbox Chalk Ink
  • Acrylic paints: black and white
  • 1-1/2-inch-diameter x 1-3/4-inch-tall wooden spool
  • Crafts glue
  • Circle punches: 1/4-inch and 1-1/2-inch diameter
  • Glue gun and hotmelt adhesive
  • Pen and 14-inch black quill feather

How to Make It

  1. From assorted patterned papers, cut two 2-x-2-inch squares and one 2-x-8-1/4-inch strip.
  2. Adhere the squares to the top and bottom of the cube; wrap and adhere the strip around the sides, slightly overlapping the ends.
  3. Ink all edges.
  4. Paint the circumference of the spool white and the upper and lower edges of the spool black.
  5. Cut a 6-inch length of patterned paper the width of the center of your spool.
    Note: If your spool has a curved middle, make tiny cuts (about 1/16 inch apart and 1/8 inch long) all along the top and the bottom long edge.
  6. Wrap and adhere the paper around the center of the spool, slightly overlapping the ends.
  7. Punch one circle from a medallion-patterned paper.
  8. Punch a 1/4-inch circle in the center. Ink the edges and adhere the paper to the top of the spool.
  9. Hot-glue the spool to the top of the cube.
  10. Glue the feather to the pen and place it in the spool hole.
