Cat Pen Holder Craft

Toilet paper rolls are one of the best craft supplies to have in abundance as they can be used for a large range of different art projects. 

Right now my kids are cat crazy and are always on the lookout for different cat crafts to make

We decided to make something useful like a pencil holder craft. My little girl has just got a new desk and this is perfect for her to keep her pencils and crayons close by as she loves to do some drawing and coloring before bed. 

I love animal crafts like my squid pencil holder craft which is another option if you are looking for an ocean theme!

Below you can find my step by step cat pencil holder craft procedure complete with images. Pencil holder crafts are much easier to make than you think as you will find out whenever you follow my easy craft process.
