Peacock Organizer {Kids Craft}


Sometimes you just need a cute organizer for all of the pens, markers and other things that seem to find a home on your desk.

And that is not even talking about the kids messes- ahem. I mean kids stuff. Like markers, pencils and crayons. Why not let them help you create one?

Last fall, I took my mom to a historical mission where I live. The lady there gave us a ton of candles. I, of course, saw crafting opportunities so I gladly took them.


Not being Catholic, I don’t know who St. Jude is or how he helps people but maybe he helped me craft. Maybe….possibly.

Anyway, that story was just to tell you, “Hey, I got candles.”

Along with the candles or any container you like to upcycle, you need……

– Paint

– q tips

– a paper plate

– Glue

And the obvious things like scissors and paint brushes.



One of the little CSI kids and I created 2.


One was kinda fat and one was skinny. The skinny one is a girl. Hmmm. See the bow!

Every girl needs a cute bow….and glitter, and lip gloss, and leopard print.


Cut the paper plate so it looks like feather. Then, paint.


Paint the body and glue on feathers and q tips. Add eyes.


There are more kinds of birds to make. We thought of several and I still have a ton of candles so the possibilities are endless.



The moral of this post is not just that this is a good kids craft idea and functional that even a mom could love it and the purpose it serves, but my other point is that I love when kids are creative and crafty. Encourage creativity and do it often!

Always remember to Create, Share and Inspire!
