Wrap the pencil holder with rope !!
To make the pencil holder more durable, you can wrap the rolls with rope or knitting yarn.

1. Fix the end of the rope with glue at the base of the roll. Allow the glue to dry. 

2. Wrap the rope around the paper rolls, starting from the bottom and moving upwards.
