DIY Tree Branch Pencil Holder

Create a pencil holder out of a tree branch.

I adore Little House in the Suburbs. These ladies are the real deal with loads of projects and ideas on their website (they have a book, too). If you appreciate creativity and handmade, then you should definitely check out their website on a regular basis. They encourage me to try to live a more sustainable, simple life without being preachy or making me feel bad.

Here’s one of my favorite projects from their website—making pencil holders by drilling holes into old logs. I’ve seen this project modified to hold tea lights as well. Either way, it’s a perfect present for anyone who loves trees. And come on, who doesn’t love trees? No one wants to be pegged as a tree hater, do they?
