Follow this tutorial to make a simple upcycled desktop pen organizer. Keep your desk clear, with office supplies organized and handy.
New office supplies make my heart skip a beat. Maybe it goes back to my childhood days, when I would carefully select and inspect my back-to-school supplies. I think it was clear even back then that I was a total over-achiever!
I started using these Pilot G2 pens back in grad school. With smooth writing gel ink, they’re my go-to pen for making lists and taking notes. As the #1 Selling Pen Brand in America, Pilot has something for everyone – including four point sizes and 20 vibrant colors. I decided to organize and store my favorite pens in a DIY desk organizer that’s super easy to make.

Supplies needed to make an upcycled pen organizer:
- empty shoe box
- assorted empty cardboard tubes (from tp or paper towels)
- clear packing tape
- decorative paper or gift wrap
- spray paint
- decorative tape (like this cork kind) for edges
- small decorative box (or more tubes -whatever you prefer)
Spray-paint the paper tubes. I just sprayed the top half, since that is the only part that would show.
Cover the shoe box with decorative paper or gift wrap. Secure with clear tape.
Cover the edges of the shoe box with decorative tape.
Add paper tubes and a small container to the shoe box.
Then fill the shoe box with your essential office supplies. It’s that easy to organize your desk and work space with all of your office supply essentials!
You can find all of your back-to school planning and organizing essentials at Walmart. There are exclusive G2 pack assortments available at Walmart during the Back-To-School shopping season:
