In every school locker having a place to store pens and pencils is definitely something that is needed. You can buy magnetic pencil holders which are nice, but what is better than DIY locker accessory. Making a pencil holder for your student's school locker can add personal flair. I will show you how to put to use one more time, those old worn-out jeans that your child has outgrown with this denim pocket magnet project.

With a few simple supplies that can be purchased from your local craft store like Michaels, AC Moore, Hobby Lobby or JoAnn's or you can find them online at Walmart, Amazon, or Target. Here's what you will need.

Old pair of jeans
Small round craft magnets
Hot glue gun
Flower patches
A pair of scissors

Using the scissors cut out the pocket from the jeans leave the material on the back of the pocket intact. You want the pocket to remain as a pocket once you cut it out from the jeans. Trim any frayed material from the edges with the scissors.

Using a warm iron, iron on the flower patches and then use the glue gun to affix the rhinestones in a desired design. Some ideas for using the rhinestone are around the perimeter like an outline or even straight across the pocket. Allow ample time for the rhinestones to dry. When they are completely dry turn the pocket over and use the hot glue gun to affix the magnets to the four corners of the pocket.

This is a really neat idea. You can get even more creative and make one for pens and one for pencils and add more flair to your student's locker. This is one of those girly locker accessories that you just can't buy in the store.
