Easy Pencil Vase Hip2Save

Feeling crafty and want to make something special to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Day next week? Try making this super easy and cute pencil vase sure to brighten any teacher’s day!

To make this project you’ll need:

  • Vase (pictured is a 6 inch rectangle shaped vase from the craft store)
  • Pencils ( I used about 40)
  • Glue Gun
  • Glue Sticks
  • Ribbon (pictured ribbon is from Michael’s Craft Store)

How to make a pecil vase for teacher Hip2Save


Start with one corner and attach pencils with hot glue to the vase, making sure they are straight up and down. I also made sure the writing on the pencil was facing the same direction but that’s totally up to you. It’s easier to put a line of glue on the vase and press down a pencil to attach. Go all the way around the vase until covered. Tie ribbon around the middle and add flowers.

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
