Back to School Countdown: Piggy Pen Holder

Piggy Pencil Holder by Laura Bray Designs

Why not dress up your homework station with this whimsical pen & pencil holder?


  • Paper mache pig
  • Foam paintbrush
  • Fabric scraps
  • Power drill and bit
  • Mod Podge


  1. Cut your fabric scraps into small pieces.
  2. Using a brush, apply Mod Podge to pig and then smooth the fabric scraps onto the surface.
  3. Once the entire surface of the pig is covered with fabric, apply a light coat of Mod Podge over the entire covered surface.  Allow to dry and then apply a second coat.
  4. Depending on the size of the pig, figure out how many holes you can place for pen holders. When the pig is completely dry,carefully drill holes into the center of the back of the pig. Use a drill bit that is the same size as the pens or pencils you want to place in the pen holder.  Make sure the hole goes all the way through the pig.

Push any rough edges down, and put pens and pencils into holder.
