April is the month for Autism Awareness, so show your support with this easy and inexpensive Autism Awareness pencil holder. You can make your own using just a few dollars worth of supplies, and the end result is perfect for using at home, office, or even giving as a teacher’s gift. Here is how you can make your own!
Autism Awareness Pencil Holder
Round, glass vase (Dollar Tree)
Yellow, blue craft foam
Assorted Puzzle pieces (Buy a puzzle at the dollar store or from the thrift store)
Foam paint brush
Red, teal, blue, and yellow craft paint
1. Begin by painting the puzzle pieces. Lay them cardboard side up (not print side) and apply two coats of paint to each. Use the various colors so you have several in each color.
2. Cut a wide strip of yellow craft foam. It should be about as wide as the vase. Wrap the strip around the vase and cut to fit. Glue in place.
3. Cut a second strip in blue, this time half the width of the original strip. Wrap, cut, and glue in place.
4. Once your puzzle pieces are dry, you can begin gluing them to the front of the vase. Just add a little glue on the back of each and press to the front of the vase in a cluster.
Your Autism Awareness pencil holder is now ready to be used! Fill it with your office and art supplies and show your support all year long!
