Art supply caddy

Hi, everyone! Today I wanted to share a project that so many of us can use since buying art supplies is an obsession we share!

Art supply caddy made from a recycled 4-pack using stencils from The Crafter's Workshop • AtopSerenityHill.com #artsupplies #organizing #stencilsI found the 4-pack holder in my stash and decided to dress it up to hold some of my markers, pencils and pens on my art table. It is a simple process and didn’t take much time at all.

I used the Mini Butterfly Collage stencil and the Mini Tatting stencil for the designs. I let the modeling paste dry for a couple hours.

I added touches of black and bronze on all the edges of the caddy with a dry brush. The final touch was to add splatters of bronze over the entire piece. It is a sweet, simple addition to my art table. The stencil designs are the star and really needed very little embellishment added to make them stand out.

Thanks for joining me today!
