Introduction: How to Make Pen Stand/Pencil Holder With Rolled Newspaper

About: I am Virginia Heydt, the DIY woman of Los Angeles. Recently, I started working as DIY blogger at

Our houses are full of waste paper that we mostly throw into dustbin but this instructable is going to teach you how you can use waste newspaper in a constructive manner. Today, I am going to teach you how to make a pen holder with rolled newspapers or rough papers.

Step 1: ​Required Material

First of all, we will talk about the required material:

  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Glue Bottle
  • Scissors
  • Poster Colors with paint brush
  • 8 Waste Paper sheets

Step 2: Start Rolling Paper

In the first step, you will have to take a pencil and start rolling sheets on it. Gradually, you will have to roll all 8 waste paper sheets and you will have to close them with the help of glue.

Step 3: 9cm Mark

Now, you can mark the sheets after 9 cm three times. Now, you will have to fold the rolled papers into a triangle as you can see in the picture.

Step 4: Paint the Paper

In the third step, you will have to paint the rolled papers according to colors of your choice. I used two colors yellow and blue.

Step 5: Last Step

In the last step, just place different colours of rolled papers on each other and stuck them with the help of glue. According to my Aunt Lily who works as a DIY project blogger at and says that we can reuse a paper several times and we should always take advantage of it. I hope, you will not throw waste papers into the dustbin next time.
