Today I recovered an old coffee can with felt, slapped on some felt flowers and called it a pencil holder. Here's how I did it!

I used:
Felt (three different colors)
Coffee can (small/medium sized -- 11.3 oz.)
Scissors
Hot glue gun

Step 1: Clean the Can

First, I took off the label from the coffee can and washed it thoroughly.

Step 2: Grab Some Felt

Next, I cut a piece of felt to cover the can. I only used my glue gun twice for this, both on the back side of the can. Presto! You now have a felt covered coffee can.

Step 3: How to Make the Flowers

Next, I made some little flowers. I made two smaller ones in light grey and one big one in white. You'll need to get a strip of felt, probably about an inch and a half to two inches in width and as long as you want. Fold it in half and glue it on the edges. Then, cut slits a quarter inch or so apart, a little over half way. Now grab your hot glue gun and start gluing like a mad woman. Glue, curl, glue, curl, glue, curl until you have a flower! Then, using my hot glue gun once again, I glued the flowers onto the coffee can.

Step 4: You're Done!

Title says it all.. You're done! Put it on a desk or a shelf and admire it.
