The Global Styler: Japanese Pencil Holder
The Global Styler is a monthly challenge for global inspired DIY, decor, and decorating tips. Make some back to school DIYs like a Japanese inspired pencil holder.
Hey there! It’s already time for another DIY for The Global Styler series. A monthly challenge for global inspired DIY, decor, and decorating tips. Since it’s getting closer to the end of summer, my friends and I decided to share back to school DIYs.
An Easy Dollar Store Japanese Inspired Pencil Holder
My daughter always has pencils and markers laying around in her room so I decided to make her a global pencil holder. Just like last month’s Moroccan inspired tray, this quick and easy DIY took about 5 minutes and $2. I picked up a tin pencil holder at the 100 yen store and a roll of Japanese ribbon tape with a traditional design in coral and gold.
Supplies for pencil holder:
- an empty can or other container
- decorative tape
- pom pom trim
- hot glue
Spray paint your container with gold paint (or any left over paint that matches your tape!). Let dry completely.
Attach the ribbon to the bottom half. Make sure the seam lines up with the seam of your can if you have one.
Hot glue trim (pom poms, tassels, ribbon…) above the decorative tape and that’s it! I used pom pom trim left over from her Serena and Lily inspired candy stripe bed cover. It looks so cute. I can’t wait to show you the entire room!
I think it looks really cute with the shoji screens in my daughter’s room and the rest of her decor!
Hopefully, she’ll keep pencils and markers off the floor now.
Make sure to stop by my cohostess’ blogs to see their back to school DIYs!

I love it! Can’t wait to see the whole room.
Thanks! I plan on sharing it very soon!
It is adorable! Love the pom pom and how it coordinates with the coverlay. Beautiful project!
Thank you Steph!
Those pens are super cute. I love all the pompom goodness going on here. I wish i could get ribbon that cute!
