Chic Pencil Cups
I came across the photo of Peter Som in his office above and thought it was very clever that he had used old Diptyque candle jars to hold his colored pencils. Then I saw he photo of Alexander Wang’s New York apartment in the February issue of Domino and on his desk was an old Diptyque candle jar holding pens and scissors. Do all fashion designers think alike? Regardless, it’s a fun way to reuse something that would otherwise be thrown away. Just clean out the old wax first so you don’t ruin your pencils by freezing the jar or soaking it in hot water. Then enjoy your chic new pencil cup!
