Ten on the 10th...a Quick Upcycle idea....

I am joining the Ten on the 10th group again, sharing an easy upcycle idea.  This one cost very little as I only had to buy a heavy duty magnetic!

A Quick Craft

I like to use little tins as flower vases, but I took a different direction with this tin. I can never find a pen when I need one, so I decided to make a magnetic pen holder for the fridge:

I removed the top of the tin:

I glued on a heavy duty magnet:

Now, if I can keep a few pens in the tin, I will always know where to find one - On the refrigerator!!
