I thought these DIY paper pencils would fit in quite nicely with the "art" theme we're rocking this month. The possibilities are as endless and pretty and artsy as you want them to be!
For students, artists, kids, or crafters this simple no-sew pencil holder is the perfect DIY project--or gift!
Whether you've got some branches left over from making a few tree limb coasters or you're just looking to add a few rustic embellishments to your abode, this whimsical pencil holder is just the DIY project you need!
So one of the five projects I contributed to Make It! Secondhand Chic is an embroidered boxes how-to, which includes two of my original embroidery patterns. I purchased the wooden 7 1/2" x 11 3/4" backgammon set pictured above to include in the tutorial, but my idea of turning it into a pencil box didn't really fall into the how-to's category, which was 'The Bathroom', unless, of course, you're in the habit of sketching in the tub. But I digress. Here's what I did to make it the most awesome pencil box ever:
Imagine receiving 25 colored pencils a month for 20 months. Each pencil's color is as unique as its name. (Have you ever wondered what color a Mermaid's Gown might be? How about Frog Pond?)
You know how some images make your heart leap with joy? This could be one them. A fence that looks like an orderly row of Crayola Pencils. Could it get any better? And the best part is it’s totally DIYable. All you’d need is some wooden fence posts. Then, whittle down the tops of each and have fun painting! Image courtesy of Saima on flickr.
