DIY Crocheted School Supply Tin

If you're new here, I post recycled Pirouline tin crafts every month! You can find them all here.

Have you ever wished that you had a fuzzy little tin to hold your pencils and school supplies?  Well, I did! So I whipped up this cute guy from an empty Pirouline Cookie tin!


  • Empty Pirouline Tin
  • Hot Glue
  • Yarn
  • Crochet Hook
  • Felt

1.  Cut a 1"x2" strip of felt. Adhere the top of the felt rectangle to the lid, and the rest to the bottom of the tin. This way you can remove the lid on and off, however it stays attached to the base of the tin.

2. You will want to crochet one long chain using your yarn. If you don't already know how to crochet, the chain stitch is the easiest stitch to do, you can even do it with your fingers if you don't have a crochet hook.
Here is a fantastic tutorial on how to crochet a chain.

3. Place a dot of hot glue onto the center of the lid and adhere the end of your crochet chain to it. Spiral the chain outwards, adhering it to the lid as you go until you've completely covered the lid.

4. Once you get to the bottom of the lid, simply shift the crochet chain down and continue spiraling the yarn down the body of the tin, adhering it to the tin so it stays put.

5. Once your tin is completely covered, tie off and adhere the end of the crochet chain down.

6. If you want to add a face to your tin, cut 2 eyes and a smile out from felt and adhere on!

Now just fill your tin with all of your favorite office and school supplies! I've got some donut erasers, a pencil sharpener and my Tombow TwinTone markers!
