The beginning of a new school year is a busy and exciting time! Create this adorable Alphabet Pencil Jar for your child's new teacher. Using one of Dollar Tree’s glass jars filled with puzzle-piece letters and freshly sharpened pencils, this gift will make for a cute and functional desk display.

Shop at Dollar Tree – Here's What You'll Need:

  • Glass Jar
  • Pack of Pencils
  • Alphabet Magnets
  • Ribbon or Twine

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Gather your supplies and then remove the foam letter pieces from the puzzle outline (see images below).
  2. Place the pencils with the lead end facing down inside the glass jar.
  3. Fill in the area between the pencils and the glass with the individual foam letters. Pack them tightly, but with enough room to still be able to remove pencils.
