Here is an original way to keep your pens and pencils organised - and it makes a great keepsake gift too!
You will need:
An old (clean!) pair of welly boots
Alphabet buttons or beads, or other decorations as appropriate
White (PVA) glue
Make sure your boots are sparkling clean and then set about decorating them! Our example above were heavily patterned already so we just used alphabet beads to spell out "pencils" down one side, but if you start with plain boots you can really go to town, using glitter, sequins, or acrylic paint!
