A Pencil Pot for My Son Brandon Made from a Gravy Container

I made this for Brandon’s pencils as he had loads all over the place, now they are just in one place sitting on his shelf! As you can see from the photos it is a Bisto Gravy Container. I painted the rim with white acrylic paint, used some spotty paper around it and stamped a Magnolia image which goes well with this project. I used watercolour pencils to colour it in and some green stickles for his little wings. I think stuck a sparkly black B onto his top. Brandon liked it i’m glad to say.

excellent idea to recycle an empty gravy container - hope Brandon keeps his pencils tidy from now on !
