Step five: Glue the wooden eyes onto the top of the box. They will rest on the frame of the box, not the sliding lid. Add black pupils to the eyes and add nostrils. Dip the end of a paintbrush in black paint, and dot it onto the wood.
Step six: Use yellow paint to add texture and color to the alligator’s skin. Paint circles and ovals randomly on the green paint.
This fun alligator pencil box will look adorable on any desk! Not only will it help keep supplies organized, it might even make homework a little more fun. My daughter loves her new pencil box, and she doesn’t even use it for pencils! It’s full of little toys. Have fun crafting and creating with wood!
I originally published this project at Blitsy, when I was on their design team.
