Wine Rack Marker/Pen Holder

A few years back I saw an idea on Pinterest to use a wine rack to hold cups that can hold pens and markers. I loved the idea, and I had a small wine rack hanging out in the basement, so I gave it a go. 

This six cup wine holder has been in my classroom for the last few years and I love it!

I decided that I wanted to go BIGGER!

I kept searching Amazon.com until I finally found one that I lurrrrved. 

Oenophilia Bordeaux Chateau Wine Rack- 23 Bottle

It took awhile to find cups at the right size (and price since I needed 23) but finally I found them at Walmart (I couldn't find them online, only in the store).  They come in packs of 2 for $1.98 each and are 29 oz. They fit PERFECTLY in the wine rack and the lips on the rims of the cups stop them from falling backwards in the rack!
Here is my completed project (sans markers and pencils because those are still packed away for the summer!)

I Love it! 


  1. I want! It looks awesome, and it would be SO easy to just grab a cup and take it back to your desk. Make me one?!

  2. As always, you have neatest ideas!

  3. If you have time, would you share some of your back-to-school activities? You always have the coolest ideas.
