Make It: Easy DIY Cork Pencil Holder and Organizer

created at: 05/14/2012

I'm a sucker for creative DIYs that are simple and fall under the "one afternoon" time frame. So, when I spotted this clever cork pencil holder and office organizer, I immediately perked up and thought "I can DO this!".   

This project comes to us from Design For Mankind as part of their new MakeKind column, a bi-weekly DIY column from contributor Laura Parke (the same Laura Parke who brought us this neon twine vase idea).

I love that this project only requires two materials (cork trivets and glue) and one tool (a drill) -- it's SO simple and brilliant! Check out how to make your own cork pencil holder / office organizer over on Design For Mankind. Meanwhile, can you think of any other clever DIY possibilities for cork trivets?

So tell me again why this is better than having a colorful cup to hold your pens and pencils?

So, funny story about the product from Ikea: Was with a friend at the store and she was like, "OH! You know what these are? You spray paint them, put them on the wall, and use them to hang necklaces." I read the label and responded, "They're trivets. But that's a great idea!"
