I. Love. These. Pencils. I want to make them for everyone and run through the streets passing them out like candy. Seriously. They’re also pretty fun to make, so if there’s someone on your list who would love these little babies (a coworker, perhaps?), let’s get down to business. You’ll need:
- plain No. 2 pencils (dollar store, yo!)
- spray paint
- Sharpie paint pens
- Scotch Blue painter’s tape
Start by masking the eraser and metal ring at the top of your pencils.
Next, spray paint your pencils. It may take a couple of coats to cover the No. 2 stamp.
Finally, use your Sharpie paint pens to make tiny dots up and down each ridge of the pencil! It seems like it would take forever, but once you get a rhythm it goes really quickly.
Bundle them up and you’re done! Make it and give it. xoxo
