Step 1: Gather Materials
Go outside your office and gather things that you think would be fun to create a pen holder from. Non-organic materials only, as you don't want your pen holder to decompose! Also, you could go to the hardware store for a myriad of creative materials. For mine, I gathered some electric wire that was on the ground, some other miscellaneous building material and a cupboard hinge.
Step 2: Compile Your Materials
Now that you have gathered your desired materials, place them all together in a shape or form that you like. For the wire on mine I used a big pen and bent the wire around it to give it a more circular shape. This step is the most creative. You are only limited by your imagination...and the amount of materials that you gathered.
Once you have achieved your desired form, a little super glue goes a long way! This will help your holder maintain the form the worked to hard to achieve!
Step 3: Final Stages!
After the super glue has dried you now have the option to spray paint your pen holder to add some color or make it a little more uniform. I sprayed mine a matte black as it seemed to me that everything was a different color and the whole piece was just too busy. So the choice is yours.
Allow a sufficient amount of time to dry before you place it on your desk for your coworkers admiration, or strange looks.
