I hate when my drinking glasses get to a point where they have rebelled from the dishwasher and have turned cloudy and just plain ugly.
About once a year...maybe a little longer....I have to pick through the glasses, throwing out the yuck and purchasing some new.
Since I hate throwing things out and like to recycle whatever I can, I decided to make pencil holders with some of the glasses. I can ALWAYS use those!
All I needed was some acrylic craft paint, a sealer, some twine, a button and a cute epoxy button sticker.

Debi Willhoite on Sep 15, 2014Great idea! I am always breaking glasses around here and ending up with an incomplete set! This is a great idea to use the orphaned glasses for. I hate to through things away too! We all need pencil and pen holders! I've used tin cans this way too! When I wrap anything with twine, I most always use Mod Podge...works great on anything! Thanks for the idea and share!
