What you’ll need:
How to easily make your own Lego pencil holders
SALT DOUGH RECIPE:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon oil
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. The dough is perfect when it’s elastic, but not sticky. You might have to adjust with more flour/water. Let the dough rest for approximately 30 min.
How to make it:
- Decide how large you want the Lego pencil holders
- Take some salt dough and form either a square or a rectangle, depending on what size Lego block you want to make
- When you’re happy with your block, use a pencil to make the pencil holes
- Then make 4 or 6 small round balls for the Lego studs, to put on top of your lego blocks
- Use the end of a pencil to press slightly down where you want to place them
- Place the studs
- Take the finished Lego pencil holders and place them on a baking sheet, bake in the oven at 250°F for 2-3 hours
- When they come out of the oven, they need to completely cool before you paint
- Paint in any color you want, dry for a little while and paint another layer
- Let dry, and you’re finished
I really hope you enjoyed this easy Lego pencil holders tutorial. Be sure to pin the project, so you have a fun craft activity for those rainy days!
