I have a set of reclaimed branch pencils that I love and happily display in a little cup on my desk. I've often wondered how to make them -- or something similar -- and it seems like I wasn't the only one with this question!
Caitlin from The Merry Thought recently put this same curiosity to work when she created a tutorial for making some modern, over-sized pencils from scrap wood. I love how they turned out, don't you?
The process can be easily adapted to branches and twigs as well, if a more rustic and whimsical look is up your alley. Check out her tutorial right here!
