How to Make a Worm Pencil Holder

Worm Pencil Holder
  • To start this craft, cut four paper sheets large enough to cover your toilet paper rolls. For this tutorial, I used green, but you can get creative with the colors you choose! Once you’ve cut out the construction paper, glue the sheets around your empty toilet paper rolls to cover all of the brown.

  • Trace the bottom of one of the toilet paper rolls onto the same colored paper as before. Trace four circles onto the paper. Cut out these circles. Then glue them to the bottom of each toilet paper roll.

  • Next, cut two paper strips for the antennae. To make the antennae curly, you can wrap the strips around a pencil. This will help to roll them up. Glue them to the back of the face.

Tips and Tricks

  • Make your worm even more fun and 3D! Instead of drawing the eyes, you can use googly eyes. For the mouth you can use a pipe cleaner. 
  • Turn your worm into a caterpillar by using more pipe cleaners. Glue them to the base of the toilet paper rolls to create as many fluffy legs as you like!
