Recycling Craft- Pen stand from sketch pens

Recycling craft
Recycling is so fun when we can transform throwaway objects into beautiful or even useful objects!
Recycling craft
I hoard many crazy stuff including dried up sketch pens and tin cans and every now and then try to create something with my "junk"!

Here is my daughter teaching Goldy our "ever  curious" Cocker spaniel how to use glue [without getting sticky ears!]

Snowy [ the Lhasapso] was more interested in posing for the picture!

This was a quick though somewhat "sticky" recycling craft !

Jazzed it up a bit with some lace to make a colorful container.
I got this idea from my friend Jessica's Altered Can Project
Do tell me how you liked this simple idea to reuse those used up markers and pens.
