Hrisi from Mery Poppins came up with the idea – and the pictures – for this pencilholder craft.

You will need: a metal can, latex paint, kitchen sponge to apply the latex and pretty paper napkins for decoration. Cover the edges with masking tape then paint the can with latex. When it’s completely dry, cut out a picture from a 3-layer paper napkin. Discard the lower two layers. If you haven’t used this technique before, it’s best to start with a smaller picture as it’s easier to glue.

Use PVA glue and a small brush to paste over the picture, moving the brush outwards from the center. You can add a 3D contour – paint it with acrylic paints when it’s dry.
Finish by covering the pencilholder with clear lacquer.
