Best Out of Waste Craft: DIY Minion Pen-Pencil Holder from Plastic Bottles

Are you ready to get creative and bring some fun to your desk? Then you’ll love today’s DIY project: a Minion-themed pen-pencil holder made from recycled materials! Not only will this craft add some personality to your workspace, but it’s also a great way to reduce waste and give plastic bottles a second life.

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own Minion pen-pencil holder:


  • A plastic bottle
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Yellow and blue colour paper
  • Googly eyes
  • Black marker or paint
  • A ruler
  • A pencil

Step 1: Prepare the Plastic Bottle

Start by cleaning and drying your plastic bottle. Then, measure and mark 4cm from the bottom of the bottle, and use scissors to cut the bottle at the mark. This will be the base of your pen-pencil holder.

Step 2: Cover the Base with Yellow Paper

Next, cut a strip of yellow colour paper to fit around the base of the bottle, and glue it in place.

Step 3: Add the Minion’s Features

Use the blue colour paper to cut out overalls for the Minion, and glue them onto the base. Then, use the black marker or paint to draw the Minion’s eyes, mouth, and hair, and glue on the googly eyes.

Step 4: Assemble the Pen-Pencil Holder

When the glue is dry, place the base back onto the bottle and glue it in place. Then, you can fill the bottle with pens, pencils, and other writing supplies.

And that’s it! Your DIY Minion pen-pencil holder is ready to brighten up your desk and make you smile every time you reach for a pen.

Not only is this craft a fun and easy way to add some personality to your workspace, but it’s also a great example of how you can use the best out-of-waste materials to create something new and useful. So why not gather your supplies and give them a try today?

Happy crafting!
