How to Create Colouring Pencil Tubs

This post is dedicated to the young ones and even the old ones. 
I shall be giving out 4 simple ways you can use to create a tub for storing(pencils, pens, brushes, etc).

Let's get started.................

You will need:
1. Cardboard containers

2. Newspaper

3. Glue

4. Paint

5. Glitter

6. Paint-brushes

7. Scissors

After all these are available we can kick-start with the process
Use paint and glitter to decorate the storage tub. Choose a cylinder-shaped container to recycle it into a tub and cover it with a layer of papier mache to make it stronger and provide a good surface to decorate.

Step 1
Start by covering the container with a layer of newspaper squares, glued on. Cover the container and leave it in a warm, airy place to dry.

Step 2
When the papier mache is completely dry, paint on a base coat and allow it to dry. You may need two coats of paint.

Step 3 
Paint on the fish and seaweed, using one colour at a time. Don't forget to paint on some air bubbles above the fish.

Step 4 
When the paint is dry, spread glue on areas you want to glitter and sprinkle on the glitter. Do this one colour at a time and leave it to dry between colours.

N.B: Before you begin, give the cardboard container a quick wash. Stand it upside down to drain and then dry it with a clean towel.
